Weight Watchers at Work

Weight Watchers at Work, administered by Maricopa County's Wellness Works Program, provides an opportunity for employees/dependents to be rewarded for losing weight and meeting program requirements. Employees/dependents have the following options for completing the program.
  • A County work-site location, call 602-248-0303 for locations or to enroll.
  • A community location, call 800.651.6000 or visit the Weight Watchers website.
  • A combination of both work-site/community locations.

Eligibility


Employees and their dependents who are covered under a County-sponsored medical plan are eligible to receive the reward. Dependents are defined as a spouse and children ages 10 and up. Children 10-17 may participate in the program when accompanied by an adult participating in a Weight Watchers program and with a doctor's permission note containing the child's goal weight.

Program Requirements


A $104 reimbursement will be awarded to the employee via their paycheck (reimbursement is considered taxable income) if the employee/dependent meets the following requirements.
  • Must be enrolled in a County-sponsored medical plan.
  • Must attend the entire meeting for 7 out of 8 Weight Watchers meetings. (The first week weigh-in and meeting is considered week 1).
  • Must lose 3% of body weight by the end of the 8-week session.
  • Must submit the following materials to Employee Benefits (Fax: 602-506-2354) within 90 days of completing the 8-week series of Weight Watchers classes.
After verifying coverage and ensuring that the attendance and weight loss goals have been met, the appropriate information will be submitted to County Payroll for processing of the reimbursement.

Participants may earn an unlimited number of rewards by attending additional 8-week programs and meeting the criteria.
