Posted Date:
9/17/2013
In an effort to increase employee participation in health screenings, provide motivation for tobacco use cessation, and increase overall better health of our employees, the Town will implement a new program effective July 1, 2013.

Employees will be required to pay 10% of their health insurance effective July 1, 2014. However, a 10% wellness incentive will be offered to those employees who participate in the following health-related activities during FY 2013-2014:

  • Bi-yearly health screenings and goal setting offered free of charge by First Carolina Care staff.  Held in November and May.
  • Participation in one additional wellness program during FY 2013-2014. Examples of wellness programs that would qualify include annual physical, annual pap smear, annual mammogram, weight loss competition, First Quit, kickball league, etc. A complete list of available wellness programs is available under Wellness Programs.
  • Participation in the “Tobacco Use 101” class for tobacco users. This class will be offered 3 times during the year, and if employees wish to pursue the First Quit program, it will be available for employees to participate in as well. Additional information about this requirement is listed in the article below.
The 10% premium for health insurance will not begin until July 1, 2014. And if the activities listed above are met, then you will not be charged the 10% premium.
