Wellness Works, the Wellness program for Maricopa County employees, strives to establish a work environment that promotes healthy lifestyles, decreases the risk of disease, and enhances employees quality of life.
The program encourages employees and their families to strengthen their health and well-being through physical activity, proper nutrition, self-care, and stress management.
Wellness Works has partnered with a new vendor, StayWell, to deliver comprehensive wellness services to Maricopa County employees starting July 1, 2015. With the transition to StayWell, there will be some changes in the annual wellness screenings.
The first change is that the on-site Biometric Screening Event will now occur after Open Enrollment between July 7 - August 28, 2015 at various County locations. All screenings will be conducted through StayWell, including the Health Assessment which has previously been completed through the Cigna or UnitedHealthcare portals.
In the upcoming weeks, we will provide detailed information about the new screening process and the applicable premium reductions. Be on the lookout for more information!
In the meantime, ONLY new employees or newly benefits-eligible employees have the following options available for completing their Biometric and Tobacco Screening to qualify for the premium reductions for the current Plan Year (2014-2015):

Wellness Works launched into 2015 with a "Move to the Moon" challenge. Our mission as a County is to achieve the 500,000,000 steps it takes to land on the lunar surface. Participants can walk, run, bike, hike, dance or moonwalk if that's their activity of choice - they just need to move! At Week #7, we've collectively moved 472,031,691 towards the moon. Keep moving!
