Outcome-based incentives are a valuable and important tool to encourage health behavior change and results among a defined population. However, with the growing trend toward outcome-based incentives, the incentive structure needs to balance this motivation with the sustainability of a program and regulatory requirements.

In its "2012 Health Care Changes Ahead Survey Report," Towers Watson reports growing interest in outcomes-based wellness plans. Some 25 percent of employers rewarded incentives based on biometric outcomes in 2011 and an additional 9 percent reported that they planned on rewarding incentives based on biometric outcomes in 2012. Moreover, 48 percent reported considering this approach for 2013 or 2014.

Listen to pre-conference comments from John Riedel.

During Health and Wellness Incentives: Positioning for Outcome-Based Rewards, a February 4, 2013 webinar, available for replay, John Riedel, president, Riedel & Associates Consultants, Inc., shares the key strategies in sustaining a health and wellness incentive program and moving toward outcome-based results.

The conference covers:

  • How to build an outcome-based incentive structure into a value-based benefit design;
  • The key differences between incentives for an initial health behavior change versus a sustained behavior change;
  • The trade-off between intrinsic and extrinsic incentives;
  • How to engage participants in an incentive program; and
  • Complying with regulatory requirements that govern incentive programs, particularly when outcome-based initiatives are implemented.
