Does healthcare reform impact the wellness program incentives I offer my employees?

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

You can now offer more incentives for your employees to participate in wellness programs. Under federal healthcare reform, the reward has increased to 30 percent of the cost of employer and employee contributions (and up to 50 percent for programs designed to prevent or reduce tobacco use). If an employee can’t meet the health standard established by the program because of a medical issue, the employer must provide a reasonable alternative way for the employee to meet the requirement.
