Well, I just took a week off to read the eight page Joint Consensus Statement, Guidance for a Reasonably Designed, Employer-Sponsored Wellness Program Using Outcomes-Based Incentives. It was published in JOEM (Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine), Volume 54, Number 7, July 2012.
Deep breaths. We’ll work through this together.
This paper’s narrow objective is, “…to provide guidance regarding use of outcomes-based incentives as part of a reasonable designed wellness program designed to improve health and lower cost while protecting employees from discrimination and unaffordable coverage.”
See where I am going with this? Do you also find all this mumbo jumbo a bit on the difficult side?
