Health Incentive Programs
I am currently researching results based incentive programs that award participants for meeting specific and measurable health criteria. I have proposed to my Police and Fire Health Trust board members that we institute a program that is based on a Metabolic Syndrome Score, which our members are already receiving from our annual physicals, to determine how much credit a participating member can receive towards their annual premiums. The result I'm hoping for is motivation for an increase in overall health of our trust members and a reduction in long term trust costs. I have found a few large scale studies that support the benefits of health incentive programs, but these studies lack details that my trust board members want in order to move forward.
Does anybody out their belong to or know of a health trust or employee health insurance program that offers results based incentives? So far, a whole lot of googling, phone calls, and emails has come up with nothing. Any leads anybody can give me on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
