Segal Consulting’s 2018 State Employee Health Benefits Study presents an overview of states’ wellness and health management programs.
It covers all 50 states and Washington, DC.
Here are this year’s key findings:
The study found that 61% of states have branded wellness programs.
Branding a wellness program signifies that the program is a key component of the overall benefits program. Moreover, it indicates to members that it is “your” program, as opposed to being identified with the vendor.
This also provides a focus to all communications and messaging and signifies the plan’s commitment to health promotion and engagement.
Some of these programs might be “employer” programs and others “plan” programs. The employer programs could have broader application than just employees enrolled in a health plan.
