All active full-time and part-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff enrolled in DePaul’s medical plan (PPO, CDHP, HMOIL), as well as COBRA participants are eligible to earn a $300 incentive credit toward their 2022 medical plan premiums if they register and complete activities for the 2021 Wellness Program. This premium incentive is available to eligible faculty and staff who are enrolled in a DePaul medical plan as the primary subscriber.

WellRight will offer a fresh lineup of healthy activities, challenges and opportunities for you in the New Year. Especially exciting for the 2021 Wellness Program is that your spouse/partner can participate in the program’s offerings to promote their health and wellbeing.

The new schedule of activities and corresponding points that you can earn toward the premium incentive is being finalized and will be shared with the program launches. 

Other exciting features that WellRight offers for DePaul’s Wellness Program include:
