King County is changing Healthy Incentives based on what we heard from employees. A new, voluntary Employee Health & Well-Being initiative will start later in 2018. What will the upcoming changes mean for your out-of-pocket medical expenses for 2018 health benefits? Thanks to the collaborative effort between labor partners and King County, King County employees* will have Gold level benefits in 2019. In 2018, you and your covered spouse or state-registered domestic partner will not need to take a Wellness Assessment or complete an Individual Action Plan.
*Applies to non-represented employees and members of KCPOG, ATU, and unions that have formally signed the 2017-2018 JLMIC benefits agreement.
What’s in a name? Help us decide!
The new King County Employee Health & Well-Being Initiative will take a comprehensive approach, focusing on the many aspects of health and well-being. We’ll bring you programs, activities and tools to help you live a healthier, happier life; meeting you where you are, in ways that work with your schedule.
We’d like to hear from you. The new initiative will be a reflection of the input you provided in 2017, so have a say in the new name, too! We’ve narrowed down the name to a few good choices, but would like your input to help us with the final decision.
Description: A complete approach to a more balanced life. Strive for harmony in your health and well-being.
Description: Live in the moment and take action. Invest in yourself to reach your goals.
Description: Connect the many things that contribute to your whole-person. Do all you can to improve your health and well-being.
You may vote through the online survey, or by paper copy at select worksites. We’ll announce the new name later this spring, along with the introduction of the new initiative!
