689 Wellness Program Named

Congratulations, you’ve got the power!

  • Eating fruit instead of candy.
  • Taking the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator.
  • Taking a deep breath when your stressed rather than bottling it up inside.
  • Getting a good night’s rest instead of staying up late to catch your favorite show.

It’s not always easy, but every time you make a healthy choice, you harness your power to impact many aspects of your life: your health, the length and quality of your life, your bank account, your work experience and the level of enjoyment you’ll get out of retirement!

That is why Local 689 and Transit Employee Health and Welfare are excited to officially introduce our new wellness program…

FAQs

I have other coverage. Can I opt out of Plan coverage?

Yes, if you are a full-time METRO employee or working under the supplemental collective bargaining agreement (the “New Service Agreement”), you may be eligible to opt out of coverage and receive a cash payment amount. You will need to provide proof that you have coverage from a source other than METRO. For more information on opting out of coverage, visit the "Election of Cash Payment/Waiver of Coverage" section on the Enrollment page.
