Frequently Asked Questions

New participants can join at any time by emailing us. Participants will have from their start date, to October 31st to earn points to go towards their cash and HSA incentives. 

Healthy Lifestyles

All county employees and their adult designees can participate in the Healthy Lifestyles program. If you are not eligible for benefits, you can earn prizes but are not eligible for the cash and HSA incentives. 

 An adult designee can be your significant other to whom you are not married or a family member with whom you share a relationship. In order to qualify, you and your designee must meet certain criteria which includes:

  • Adult designee status for an eligible adult (a child must be over the age of 26 and not disabled) who is:
    • Both unmarried and over age 18
    • Proof of joint expenses
  • If you meet the criteria, you must complete an adult designee affidavit and supply the required financial documentation within 31 days. Affidavit found under Adult Designee link on slco.org/human-resources/benefits/ insurance-benefits/
  • The IRS taxes an “imputed income” for this benefit, which will include an additional cost from your paycheck.
  • The definition of imputed income is the taxable amount an employee pays when adding coverage for an adult
    designee or the children of an adult designee to coverage.
  • Your children up to age 26, regardless of student or marital status (except for life insurance).
    • The child will be removed from coverage at the end of the month they turn 26. COBRA coverage will be offered.
    • Your children of any age with a qualifying disability determined by the health plan. 

Healthy Lifestyles participants use WellSteps to log their points. Login using your EIN as your username or EIN+1 for spouses and adult designees. 

All Healthy Lifestyles cash incentives will be administered to the employee's paycheck in December of each year. Health Savings Account (HSA) incentives are issued to employee's Fidelity account in January of each year. 

According to the IRS Memo 201622031, an employer may not exclude from an employee's gross income payments of cash rewards for participating in a wellness program. 

Healthy Lifestyles offers a variety of online programs, virtual workshops, virtual classes, and in-person events that span from Clark Planetarium to Herriman Library. Healthy Lifestyles also recruits Healthy Lifestyles ‘champions’ to coordinate wellness events at their worksite. Email us if you are interested in becoming a Healthy Lifestyles champion.
