Healthy Lifestyles Wellness Program
To improve and sustain the health of every valued employee at ABC Companies, we continue to offer any employee enrolled in ABC Companies’s health insurance the opportunity to participate in our Wellness Incentive Program. The Wellness Incentive Program is a voluntary and completely confidential biometric health screening which allows you to gain awareness about your current health status and either affirm your healthy lifestyle or advise you of areas to improve.
Wellness Incentive Program
New employees pay a pre-determined rate through December of the year in which they are hired, or until they have an opportunity to participate in the health screenings conducted annually each Fall.
The Program includes financial impacts that impact employee health plan premium contributions if they qualify for certain pre-determined goals and criteria.
By meeting various requirements or completing appropriate alternative standards under the Program, participants can qualify for a lower payroll deduction for their medical plan than the payroll deduction applied to a non-participant. Program participants may also be given opportunities to access health improvement resources and benefits designed to improve their overall health status. The Program requires an annual health screening. The screenings are generally offered on-site and are provided at no cost to eligible employees. Individual test results are not shared with the employer and are limited to entities that are permitted to receive Protected Health Information (PHI).
Generally, the value of the incentives earned is determined by the results of the health screening conducted. However, participants may be eligible to qualify for the full incentive upon completion of an alternative program. An annual calculation is performed in order to determine the maximum amount of outcomes-based incentive available to participants by law. If the amount available under the program exceeds the annual maximum permitted, the financial impact will be adjusted to the maximum permitted based upon your participation in the program.
