Eligibility for the employee wellness program

City employees who are eligible to receive City benefits are also eligible to participate in the employee wellness program.  In addition, dependents who are 18 or older are also welcome to participate in the My Health Rewards program to complete health actions and earn gift cards.  Dependents can earn a $20 gift card for every 100 points up to a maximum of 500 points.  However, only City of Minneapolis employees may earn points to qualify for the wellness premium contribution rate on their 2019 health insurance coverage.
 
All newly enrolled employees will receive the discounted lower wellness rate for the calendar year in which they begin their coverage.  Employees who become eligible for City benefits on or before June 1, 2018, must earn at least 300 points in the wellness program by Aug. 31, 2018, to qualify for the discounted wellness rate on their health insurance premiums in 2019.
 
New employees who become eligible for City benefits after June 1, 2018, will automatically receive the discounted wellness rate on their health insurance premiums in 2019. New employees may earn points for gift cards from the date they become eligible for City benefits through December. 31, 2018.
