Wellness Program Incentives

The following Wellness Program Incentives are available to TAC GHB Wellness Program participants. The best incentive for participating in the Wellness Program is achieving your optimal health and wellbeing! But as we know, change can be a challenge. The Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church (TAC) offers cash incentives to encourage and reward participants for achieving their specific wellness goals.

See "Are you eligible for the Wellness Program?" to make sure you can participate.

Weight Loss Incentive

The Weight Loss Incentive is available to you once you have achieved your target weight loss goals. You can apply for a single incentive or multiple incentives at a time; however, each incentive can only be earned once. All weight calculations are based on your starting weight recorded at the Day of Wellness. All wellness incentives are based on a target Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25.0. For more information, download a BMI chart. Please note that the total of all Wellness Incentives earned in any one calendar year, January 1 thru December 31, are limited to $2,000 per person.

You can earn up to $1,000 by achieving the following weight loss goals:

  1. $200 - Losing 5% of your total weight recorded at the Day of Wellness. 

Incentives 2 and 3 below require confirmation of current weight and height and date of your annual physical examination. Please use the attached Physician Confirmation Form.

  1. $200 – Losing 10% of your total weight recorded at the Day of Wellness.     
  1. $600 – Losing 100% of the weight required to achieve your target body mass index (BMI) of 25.0.
