#HealthyPequannock Initiative

The goal of this program is to encourage staff members to participate in wellness incentive programs that will not only promote healthy habits, but also provide up to $490 in base rewards.

District NJWELL Bonus Incentive

If our district is able to meet the 25% successful participation rate set by Horizon for the NJWELL program, the district will realize a 1% savings on the district’s insurance premium. We are prepared to split that savings with successful participants, which includes all employees who are on a district benefits health plan. 

Based on our enrollment data, we will likely need 62 employees to complete the NJWELL program successfully for 23-24 in order for us to hit the 25% target. 1% of the district’s insurance premium is about $60k, which means that an additional $30k would be shared with successful participants.

De, Portas will preset Power PDs at each school to support interested staff members, and we also have NJWELL peer ambassadors available at most schools.

As of December 21, we currently have ## of a target of 65 goal of successful participants. We will track our progress on this page; unfortunately Horizon only provides us an end-of-year report so we will need successful participants to let Dr. Portas know  that they've met their goal, and he will update the thermometer. Have fun!
