Overview: What could be wrong with encouraging your employees to live a healthier lifestyle so that your company could save on the costs of its group health program? Such 'encouragement' must be considered 'voluntary' under many laws and what is truly 'voluntary'? And, what right does an employer have to tell their employees how to live their lives anyway? Finally, given so many restrictions on how much information an employer can have on an employee's health information, how can an employer determine if the employee is complying with the program so as to provide the awards offered under the program?

Why should you attend: Americans are among the unhealthiest in the world and use the health care system more than any other country. Health care costs are at an all time high, and now companies are facing with the legal requirements of Obama-care. Statistically speaking, if individuals were healthier and did not use the health care system as much, our health care costs would be lower. Companies have for a number of years considered wellness programs as a way of encouraging their employees to live healthier lives which in turn would mean that they would not need to use the company's group health insurance as often. It seems that every seemingly logical solution comes with significant legal risks - and wellness programs are no exception. And, the courts are just getting around to answering some of these thorny questions!

Areas Covered in the Session:

What is a wellness program?

Do wellness programs make sense in addressing the rising costs of health care benefits?

Privacy concerns of wellness programs
