Biometrics: Incorporating Health Risk Assessments and Outcome Based Wellness Incentives Into Your Health Plan

About This Course:
Employers are always looking for ways to control health care costs. More and more employers recognize the important role wellness can play in reducing those costs - healthier employees means lower costs - but are looking for something with more "oomph" than yet another wellness fair or walking program. A biometrics program may be that extra push your health plan needs.

This webinar will explain the advantages of biometrics programs and tools to evaluate whether they are right for your organization; identify the key issues employers should consider in designing a good biometrics program, including choosing incentives, funding mechanisms and what to look for when selecting vendors; and explore the major legal issues that must be taken into account, with a particular focus on the revised HIPAA wellness plan rules under the Affordable Care Act.
