2020 Wellness Premium Incentive Credit
In response to evolving requirements for wellness programs, St. Johns County’s voluntary Personal Health Assessment (PHA) premium credit program will be replaced for 2020 with the voluntary Wellness Premium Incentive (WPI) Program. The County will no longer host personal health assessment events and instead, under the new WPI program, employees and spouses enrolled in the St. Johns County Medical Plan will be eligible for the insurance premium credit in 2020 simply by completing an annual wellness exam at a physician’s office between October 1, 2018 and September 30, 2019.
