There are several reimbursement options that are available to Dane County Employees through the Wellness Program on a first-come first-serve basis (once funding is exhausted for each reimbursement bucket, reimbursements cannot be approved). These reimbursements are effective the first of the year and all purchases must be made in the year 2020. Only regular Dane County Employees can participate in the reimbursements (excludes LTEs & family members).

Upon submission of proof of payment and visits (at least 24 separate days/quarter), you will receive up to $30/quarter of your paid amount, up to a max total of $120/year. You may submit your payment and visits quarterly, or less often, but reimbursements will be paid on a first-come, first-serve basis, and once this funding is gone, reimbursements cannot be approved.
