Wellness Programs

Good health improves virtually every aspect of our personal and professional lives, and that’s good for you and for Michaels.

Our wellness program focuses on more than just your physical health. It challenges you to be mentally, emotionally and financially healthy, too.

So whether your goal is to lose weight, be more proactive with your health, eat healthier or save more, we’ve got you covered with the wellness program.

Wellness Requirement

You and your spouse/domestic partner only need to complete an annual physical by June 30, 2023 to avoid a surcharge beginning in August 2023. (Physicals completed between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 will be accepted.)

Team Members with medical coverage beginning on or after March 1, 2023 do not need to complete the wellness requirement.

If you and your spouse/domestic partner are enrolled in a Michaels full-time medical plan, you each need to complete an annual physical between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 to avoid paying a $25 per paycheck/$650 for the year surcharge per person on your medical premiums beginning in August 2023.
