While employers continue to use cost shifting to control their health care plan expenses, many also are making wellness programs part of their health care cost control strategy and are seeing these programs as a long-term investment in a healthier workforce.A survey of 365 companies by the ERISA Industry Committee (ERIC) and the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions found that 62 percent have implemented wellness programs to improve employees’ health. Of these companies, 64 percent cited rising health care costs as a “major factor” in the decision to sponsor a wellness program, and 34 percent said that health care costs played “some role” in the decision. In a separate survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers, 80 percent of surveyed business executives said that the best option for reducing health care costs was to provide financial incentives for employees to lead healthier lifestyles.
