Typically not the following: – Paper-based Health Risk Assessments for all employees and spouses regardless if they are on plan or not – On-site collection of bio-metrics without charge – Face-to-face consultations for all employees post-HRA – On going on site education sessions On-going on-site – Wellness-based intervention rather than medically-based

Why is on going education an important part of a successful on-going program? How much is your employees’ risk costing you in predictable “excess costs”? excess How much do employers have to pay to participate in the Healthy People 2010 Grant?
