*Internal Revenue Service tax code specifies that certain wellness program rewards offered to employees by employers create tax liabilities to reward recipients. Therefore, the value of the reward employees receive may result in employers having to issue a tax document to employees for the rewards employees earn in this program. At the end of the year, BCBSNE will send a report to employers listing who earned what rewards so employers can issue the tax document to those employees.
