 Wellness Programs

Lee County provides a robust Employee Wellness Program focused on meeting employees where they are on their path to wellness. Whether the focus is improving physical, mental or financial health, our wellness programming provides a variety of information, resources and opportunities to reach your wellness goals. 


If you participate in our Medical Insurance through Aetna, you can earn a $50 gift card for completing your health assessment and one online health coaching journey. 

Your responses are kept confidential on a secure site. After completing your assessment, you'll receive a personalized health report. It's all part of improving your overall health through the Journeys program. This online wellness program can help you learn ways to improve your health or simply fine-tune your daily habits.

Aetna Resources for Living is an employee assistance program, available at no cost to you and all members of your household. Children living away from home are covered up to age 26.  Services offered include access to emotional wellbeing support and counseling, daily life assistance, legal services, financial services, and online resources including on-demand webinars.

You can also access up to 5 confidential counseling sessions per issue each year at no cost to you either face to face, via televideo or chat therapy. You can also call 24 hours a day for in-the-moment emotional well-being support.

Because the program is through Aetna, all counselors are in-network with our Aetna medical plan as well, so participants can seamlessly transition into longer-term care if necessary. After the initial 5 free sessions, you would only be responsible for a $10 copay per session.
