Volusia County offers a very competitive and comprehensive benefits package for its employees. The focal point is wellness and prevention that is apparent in the wellness program available and the wellness incentive for which employees can qualify. The county’s self-funded health plan provides employees and spouses with a free annual preventive physical up to $200 at a network provider. Women receive their annual well woman check up at no cost at a network provider. These are provided to encourage employees to monitor their health and detect early diagnosis for any medical problem. The provider network is the most extensive in the area. The plan is a three-tier benefit plan offering employees some level of benefit whether the employee chooses a network provider, an extended network provider or chooses to go totally out of network.

The employee wellness initiative of up to $300 flex dollars consists of four screenings (blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides and body mass index) that will help employees understand their current health status. The qualifying period is during the annual open enrollment and the wellness incentive can be applied toward premiums for the health plan and other coverages the employee selects (cancer, vision, extra life insurance), or added to a flexible spending account. These premiums are deducted pre tax as provided under the Section 125 of the tax code.

Wellness centers are in Daytona Beach, DeLand and at Daytona Beach International Airport for employees to have 24/7 access to work out on aerobic equipment, free weights or machines. A full-time wellness coordinator is available for personal training and counseling. The wellness coordinator also provides wellness programs during the year throughout the county.
