There is finally a way to lower healthcare premiums and this affects small business to large corporations. Rising premiums have become a painful event that employers suffer through each year. The question is not if premiums will rise, but how much will they rise. Now, healthcare providers are offering incentives to employees if they quit smoking, lose weight, and improve overall fitness.
The employer or healthcare provider compensates employees when they achieve measurable goals that improve their overall health and fitness. Examples of compensation are lowered healthcare premiums, funding of the employee’s HSA, and monetary compensation……. The opportunity to lower healthcare costs is very exciting for employers, but the execution of a proper health and fitness program at most companies is very poor.
