Wellness Plan

Participation in the Wellness Plan is voluntary. Employees who participate in the Wellness Plan will receive a discount of $25 per month ($12.50 per pay period). Employees who choose not to participate in the Wellness Plan will not receive the discount and therefore increase their health insurance premium by $25 monthly. 

To be eligible for the discount, you must complete BOTH the health risk assessment and the biometric screening. There is no cost to the employee for the health risk assessment or biometric screening. This year will be the same as 2022, there will be a required blood draw. 

Waist Circumference Incentive

Additionally, like years past, full-time, and part-time benefited employees enrolled in the County’s health insurance plan are eligible for a $500 incentive*, payable in December if they meet the Waist Circumference Criteria below: 


Waist circumference of 35” or less.


Waist circumference of 40” or less.


Improvement of waist measurement by 5% from the results of the previous year (2022). **

Learn how to measure your waist.

*Incentive is considered taxable wages, subject to tax withholdings per IRS rules.

** If unable to meet either of these requirements please reach out to Rachel Ruggles (704-216-8163) for potential alternatives by 5 pm September 8, 2023.

Only those who are both insured and complete the HRA / Biometric Screening AND meet the above criteria are eligible for the wellness incentive.
