Program to help county contain healthcare costs, and help employees establish wellness plans
Elizabeth, NJ—Union County Freeholder Chairman Daniel P. Sullivan announced today the launching of a new wellness initiative for County employees. The Employee Wellness Program will provide county employees with support and information system to live healthier lives.
“By providing our employees with these important health tools we hope to contain healthcare costs and provide a helping hand to our employees in their efforts to lead healthier lives,” said Freeholder Sullivan.
To kick off the initiative, throughout the month of September, employees with CIGNA Medical coverage are being encouraged to participate in the Cigna’s Health Assessment. The Health Assessment is a 15 to 30 minute online questionnaire that will give employees a snapshot of their immediate health picture, highlight what they are doing well and suggest areas for improvement. Employees may even choose to discuss results with their physician at their next visit and start working together towards a healthier future.
“The health assessment is a critical step in guiding our employees and their families to healthy life choices,” said Sullivan. “Once the questionnaire is completed it will give employees and their physicians a clearer picture of what areas they need to improve on when it comes to their health.”
