| Access to primary care is front and center in discussion about cost savings. Health care reform proposals encourage employers to provide innovative health and wellness program. People like you are asking:
- How are employers keeping employees healthy?
- How are incentives used in today's economy?
- Are incentives offered to seek primary care?
- How do employers integrate with primary care?
- Are programs with incentives worth the cost?
Does size matter? Small and medium-sized companies also report that incentives are a strategic component of successful programs to keep employees healthy and lower health benefit costs. Companies with as few as 210 employees are offering incentives valued at $1,450 per year to keep employees healthy.
The third annual survey of employer use of incentives in these programs reveals new information about:
- how employers use incentives,
- how much they pay,
- what programs they incent, and
- how employers are achieving value and return on investment during an economic downturn.
Listen to the speakers' 50-minute presentation, followed by a Q&A period during which you'll hear answers to chief concerns related to incentive programs.
During the How Employers Use Incentives to Keep Employees Healthy: Perks, Programs and Peers, a August 11th webinar, you'll learn:
- How incentives are used by employers of all sizes;
- Why it pays to extend programs to spouses and family members, and what incentives work to get them on board;
- How business leaders are addressing the need for primary care;
- Where the health risk assessment fits into the health management picture;
- What employers are doing to measure ROI and total program outcomes, and what you can learn from their experience.
Your registration includes the CD and the NEW report.
