    In this session, participants will learn and better understand the world of wellness. They will get specific examples of each type of incentive program and the parameters by which they can vary and still be in compliance.  Participants should leave the session having a much better idea of what is allowed and what isn’t as well as some creative (and legal) ideas to incent workers in their wellness programs.

    Learning objectives:

    • Understand when new regulations affecting wellness programs take effect

    • Understand what types of wellness programs fall under these regulations

    • Identify the different types of incentive programs and how to design them to be in compliance with impending ACA and HIPAA regulations

    • Be able to audit/evaluate current or planned wellness programing and incentive structures to identify areas of risk and how to modify to make them comply with regulations.
