Understanding Results-Based Wellness Incentives

beBetter White Paper Helps Benefits Professionals Tie Health Premiums to Wellness Outcomes

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 24, 2012) - beBetter Health, Inc., a corporate wellness company dedicated to engaging employees in their health, has released a new white paper to help benefits professionals understand best practices and legal considerations when tying the cost of health plans to employee health status.

Today's benefits professionals are continually challenged to find new strategies to control rising healthcare costs. Results-based benefits cost differentials represent a promising approach for sponsors of worksite wellness programs who want to improve employee health and bend their benefits cost trend. Such programs have growing regulatory support and provide a logical way to promote greater awareness about the connection between an employee's health status and the true cost of care.

In order to be successful implementing such programs, benefits professionals need a keen understanding of the market and healthcare legislation, as well as a well-designed and executed wellness program.

Topics covered in the paper:

  • Why the Results-Based Approach Makes Sense
  • Best Practices when Implementing a Results-Based Approach
  • How to Deliver the Right Message to Employees
  • Compliance and Legal Consideration, including a summary of five key criteria spelled out by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)
