​​2021 Wellness Program for Benefits-eligible Employees

All benefits-eligible employees have access to DePaul’s​ Wellness Program delivered by WellRight. The program runs from January through November 30 each year. 

The annual program offers wellness benefits as well as a financial incentive: All active full-time and part-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff enrolled in DePaul’s medical plan as the primary subscriber 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. 

To earn the $300 incentive credit, eligible participants complete various healthy activities to earn points throughout the end of the program on November 30, 2021.  Click here for the 2021 Wellness Program Point Schedule.* For more details for current participants about the end of the 2021 program, click here​.

*Note: For those who have participated in the DePaul's Wellness Program last year, you'll notice that the point system is different. While the number of points seem higher compared to last year’s program, the effort to earn those points has not increased. The difference is simply a reflection of the point system used by WellRight, our new vendor for 2021. With WellRight, participants have a variety of healthy activities and challenges that provide ample opportunities to earn points through the program.
