The Millard County Wellness Committee was designed to help the employees of Millard County achieve better health. Healthy employees result in lower health insurance rates, which in turn helps with a lower County budget.
Millard County currently participates in wellness activities offered through its Health Insurance provider PEHP/Healthy Utah (see information below). We encourage all employees, as well as invite County citizens, to participate in any healthy activity that is offered on this page. Please note that citizens (not employed with Millard County) will not be allowed to participate in any drawings or any incentives offered by Healthy Utah. We apologize for this, but we would still encourage you to participate for a chance at better health.
