What are Wellness Points?
Employees earn Wellness Points by answering two questions: 1) Do you avoid all forms of tobacco? 2) Do you engage in at least 150 minutes of exercise per week?
As an employee of WVU Medicine, WVU Employee at HSC, or WVU you may receive 25 Wellness Points per semester for each “yes” answer. Each point is equal to $1. Each semester the employee is required to pay the first $3 for a class. The employee’s Wellness Points are used for the remaining fee (i.e., Total class fee $35, Employee responsible for $3, the Wellness Center will deduct 32 points from the employees balance). Wellness Points can be accumulated up to 200 points/year.
