Important Message About the Wellness Program:

 

Many of you have heard about me relocating to Casper due to my husband accepting a job there. While I know this has created many questions for you on premium reductions,  prescription coverage, the health fair, etc I would like to happily announce that I am not  going anywhere! The Board of Commissioners agreed it was important to maintain the consistency of the Wellness Program benefits, especially since everything else this year has been so unpredictable. While I am still moving to Casper, the Board has agreed to have me continue as an independent contractor and manage the Wellness Program for the next year.

 

I will be completing the majority of paperwork from Casper, but, once per month, I will be travelling to Fremont County to meet with individuals and departments. My first visit will be July 13-15, and then every second Monday-Wednesday of each month, weather permitting. Everything will pretty much remain the same, including all contact information. I am working on getting a dropbox in the Wellness Program office in the Courthouse so you can drop off papers there, as well as creating a secure email to receive paperwork with sensitive information like blood pressure, etc. I will have more information coming soon!

 

My last day as an employee here in Fremont County is June 15.  I will begin managing the program from Casper July 1. While there is a 2 week break for me to get settled and  organized, be prepared to hit the ground running:

Premium Reduction forms for 2020-2021 are due by Oct. 2 (rescheduled from the usual June due date due to Covid-19). The new reductions will take effect December 31, 2020.  Therefore, I will begin completing forms and biometric measurements during my July visit, and each month through September. The health fair is still scheduled for Aug, 26 & 27.  I will have more information coming in the next few weeks on this. Please stay tuned!
