AEA 267 is looking at bringing Weight Watchers to our workplace. Weight Watchers at Work gives you access to weekly meetings at your workplace or in your local community and includes the Weight Watchers suite of digital and mobile tools along with 24/7 Chat.
This 17-week plan offers a great opportunity to have the motivation needed for a healthy lifestyle with guidance from a leader who has faced the same challenges. Twenty participants are needed for the meetings to be held at any one of our three office locations. Any location with less than 20 can still benefit from the workplace rate with the same eTools available and staff are able to attend meetings in their local communities.
The cost is typically $186 payable upfront or in three monthly payments of $62 each. However, during the month of February, Weight Watchers at Work is offering a special offer providing two weeks free (approximately $22 off the regular price) of the 17-week program. Under certain circumstances, you may be allowed to use flexible spending dollars to pay for weight loss programs. Please visit with your doctor and consult with WageWorks if you are considering this benefit. The required medical necessity form can be found in the iVisions Portal under My Benefits>Information Center>Flexible Spending>Healthcare.
If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity please sign up by February 16 on this Google document. Once we have a minimum of 20 people, a local Weight Watchers leader will come out to give an overview of the program, answer questions and help those who are interested to register for the program.
