Employees and spouses on the county's insurance plan are eligible to receive a premium reduction of up to $100 per month, per person by meeting up to 4 standards set by the program. If a participant does not meet one or more standards, he or she will then be eligible to earn the amount missed in the form of a participation incentive.
Also, employees, spouses and dependents who take prescriptions for asthma, blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes can receive 100% coverage of these medications by participating in the Chronic Disease Management Program.
How To Earn A Premium Reduction
Premium reductions expire every June 30. In order to stay active in the program July 1, current employees and spouses must complete a new premium reduction form between April and June. Health fair screenings completed within the previous 2 years are accepted, but blood pressure measurements and BMI/waist measurements must be current. Health fair screenings can be completed at no cost once per calendar year by attending the Employee Health Fair in the Spring or another blood draw offered by Wyoming Health Fairs.
