Employee Wellness Programs
An Introduction to Wellness
The rapidly increasing cost of employee health care programs is a growing concern for every American business, from the smallest partnerships to Fortune 1000 companies. Health care costs are rising at the fastest rate in our history, even during this period of low inflation.
In 2005, employer health insurance premiums increased by 9.2 percent - nearly three times the rate of inflation. The annual premium for an employer health plan covering a family of four averaged nearly $11,000; the annual premium for single coverage averaged over $4,000.
Wellness is an aspect of health cost management that focuses efforts on maximizing an employee's general health.
