2020-2021 Wellness Requirement

EXTENSION: The deadline for the 2020-2021 Wellness Requirement has been extended. Team Members will now have until October 31, 2021 to complete this year’s requirement.

If you and your spouse/domestic partner have been enrolled in a Michaels full-time medical plan for coverage beginning on or before March 1, 2021, you both must complete a Preventive Exam and lab work between May 1, 2020 and October 31, 2021 to avoid a $520 per person surcharge on 2022 medical premiums beginning January 14, 2022.

Be Tobacco Free

If you and/or your spouse/domestic partner use tobacco, including e-cigarettes and non-nicotine vaporizers, $25 per paycheck/$650 for the year will be added to your medical premiums beginning in July. You can’t use tobacco products for at least six months to be considered tobacco-free, and you can only change your status during Open Enrollment.
