Weight Watchers (WW)

As of 1/1/2020, Weight Watchers has changed the payment structure of the program. The employer (in our case, Commonwealth of MA) would be responsible for subsidizing a portion of the program cost. As an entity of the Commonwealth of MA, Worcester State cannot pay for this.
Weight Watchers has offered a special discount to our employees, should you decide to enroll in the following plans:
  • Digital (Starting at $3.07/week)
  • Workshop and Digital (Starting at $6.92/week)
  • Personal Coaching and Digital (Starting at $8.46/week)
