BeWell’s response to COVID-19

Our spouses and partners have tremendous influence on our wellness. A shared wellness journey can keep both of you motivated and on track to meet your goals — while enriching your lives.

The BeWell Program for spouses

If you are a spouse or registered domestic partner of a benefits-eligible university employee, you can participate in the BeWell Program by completing the Stanford Health and Lifestyle Assessment (SHALA) and the Wellness Profile, for which you may be eligible for a $220 incentive. A spouse/partner may participate even if the employee receives medical benefits from an organization other than Stanford.

Here’s how it works:

  • Take your SHALA first, then complete the Wellness Profile (Screening, Advising and Plan) before the Nov. 30, 2020 Program deadline.
  • In order for you to earn this incentive, the employee must complete SHALA, Wellness Profile and Engagement. See our Program deadlines.

Stanford Facility Access

If you are the spouse or domestic partner of a Stanford faculty or staff member, and you would like to gain access to any of the recreational facilities at Stanford, you’ll need to obtain a Courtesy Card. (See Administrative Guide Memo: 2.4.3 Stanford Identification Cards for policies governing Courtesy Card eligibility.) Most applications and services, with the exception of the StanfordCardPlan, are also available to Courtesy Card holders.

To obtain your Courtesy Card, visit the Stanford Campus Card Office at Tresidder Union and bring your photo ID (driver’s license or passport), payment (see the ID Card Rates page), and one of the following:

  • Marriage certificate/license
  • Joint tax return
  • Proof of joint Stanford benefits

(Lease documents and drivers licenses are insufficient for domestic partner courtesy cards.)

Your Stanford spouse/domestic partner must accompany you when you apply, and must show their valid Stanford ID Card.
