Summary: The Webster Wellness Employee Reimbursement Program provides institutional support and resources for faculty and staff employees participating in our medical plans who are working towards their wellness goals consistent with Webster University’s Webster Wellness Mission and Vision.
Purpose: This program supports our long-term strategy to encourage proactive pursuit of wellness and to change behavior that otherwise might contribute to extended health concerns such as diabetes, cancer, high cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.
Guidelines: The budget provides financial support to employees (and their covered dependents) for their participation in health promotions programs or memberships (e.g. Weight Watchers, Club Fitness, YMCA, etc.) as well as registration fees for health related events (e.g. Marathons, 5K races, Zumba classes, etc.).
Reimbursement requests can be submitted through the form available at this link: Click Here at anytime but no later than the last date of the session. Employees will be required to submit an invoice or proof of purchase and registration (if applicable). Payment will be made through the payroll process following each session below and subject to the employee’s designated tax rate.
Session 1 : January 1st – March 31st
Session 2 : April 1st – June 30th
Session 3 : July 1st – September 30th
Session 4 : October 1st – December 31st
Program Limitations: An employee’s reimbursement will not exceed 50% of the total cost for the membership/event during that session. Employees may apply for multiple events/programs, but may only receive up to $100 per session. Webster Wellness will review applications in the order received and will reimburse based on these parameters. Employees’ requests may span multiple sessions, but must reflect participation in each session. NOTE: Reimbursements are limited to the overall budget.
Funds will be disbursed at the discretion of Webster Wellness and Webster Wellness reserves the right to modify or eliminate this program.
