EEOC Issues Important New Standards for Wellness Programs

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has published a final rule governing wellness programs established by entities subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (the “EEOC/ADA rule”). The EEOC/ADA rule will affect how employers and group health plans design a variety of health and wellness programs, including (but not limited to) health-risk assessments; biometric medical screening; classes to help individuals stop smoking or lose weight; physical activity programs; and coaching to help participants meet health goals. The rule will also affect plan sponsors that collect health information and use it to design wellness programs.
