Frequently Asked Questions

2023 Healthy Lifestyle Changes FAQ

How long does it take to receive my rebate?

It will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks for you to receive your taxable rebate on the SLCo employee’s paycheck. Spouses and adult designees rebate will be attached to the employee’s paycheck.

Why is it now required to get an annual physical to get my rebate instead of biometric screenings?

We at Healthy Lifestyles want our participants to get the best and most accurate picture of their health. Getting an annual physical from a medical practitioner allows you to meet with a professional who can provide you with accurate health readings, explanations, official diagnoses, treatment suggestions, and can ultimately refer you to other professional specialists if needed.

Why is my Healthy Lifestyles cash rebate taxed?

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

I only work part time. Am I eligible to participate in the Healthy Lifestyles program?

Anyone who is eligible for Salt Lake County benefits can participate in the program and receive the cash rebate. If you are not eligible for benefits, you can still participate in the wellness challenges and events that Healthy Lifestyles hosts.

Can my spouse or adult designee participate in the program?
