Most large employers now offer health management programs to their employees. A related trend is the growing use of incentives as a tool to drive employee participation and engagement in those programs. Program incentives averaging $192 per person per year are part of an overall employer investment that is expected to yield a return. While most common incentives used are gift cards, premium reductions, and cash bonuses, the use of gift cards is on the rise.
For the second consecutive year, Health2 Resources conducted a survey of the membership of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the ERISA Industry Council (ERIC) to delve into the use of incentives in health, wellness, and disease management programs.
This year's survey found that more than three out of four employers now offer health and wellness programs and almost half offer disease management programs. The results offer new insights into employer attitudes about health and disease management programs, including the nuances of when, how much and what kind of incentives are being used and how success is measured.
