According to researchers at Harvard, wellness incentives from insurers will help people save large amounts on their health insurance plan premiums!
How much will individuals save?
- With a 30% discount: they’ll save $1,447 annually, on average.
- With a 50% discount: $2,412
What about a family health insurance policy? The savings are even more substantial:
- 30% discount: $4,013 savings
- 50% discount: $6,688 in annual savings
The healthcare reform law promotes these incentives as a method of reducing costs, since they encourage policyholders to take better care of their health.
