Designed for Wellness

Welcome to Synopsys Designed for Wellness, a program that rewards you for making healthy choices. To help you manage your health and reach your individual well-being goals, Synopsys has partnered with Limeade to provide a variety of resources, tools, and coaching services.

The Synopsys Designed for Wellness website provides a range of services and programs, all designed to reward you for living a healthier lifestyle. The website is your gateway to taking a Well-Being Assessment and participating in other challenges to support your total well-being.

If you earn 500 points and reach Level 1: Sprout by August 28, 2020, your 2021 medical premiums will be reduced by $260 for employee-only coverage and $520 for employee and spouse/domestic partner coverage.

How to Earn Your First 500 Points

For 2020, you must complete a Well-Being Assessment (250 points) and earn another 250 points by participating in wellness challenges to reach Level 1: Sprout (500 points). If you do so by August 28, 2020, you’ll earn a medical premium discount for 2021, or a $100 gift card if you waive coverage. 

The Well-Being Assessment is an online questionnaire that helps establish a baseline view of your overall health. The questionnaire takes about 10–15 minutes to complete and asks basic health habit and lifestyle questions.

If you're a new hire on or after July 1, 2020, you'll automatically be awarded the 2020 and 2021 medical plan contribution discounts. If you wish to earn other rewards, you'll need to complete the Well-Being Assessment plus other activities to reach the applicable levels. If you plan to waive Synopsys medical coverage for 2021, you must earn 500 points by August 28, 2020, to achieve Level 1: Sprout and receive the $100 gift card. 

Flu Shots

Getting a flu vaccine is an essential part of protecting your and your family’s health. This year, due to the pandemic, Synopsys will not be hosting onsite flu shots clinics, but we encourage you to get a flu shot on your own.

To protect your health when getting a flu vaccine, follow the CDC’s recommendations for running essential errands and doctor visits. Continue to take everyday preventive actions. You can safely get a flu vaccine at your doctor’s office, the health department, or a pharmacy. You can also find a flu shot location by using the Flu Vaccine Finder. Wherever you go, be sure to ask if they’re following the CDC’s vaccination pandemic guidance.
