Medical Plan Strategy and Wellness
• Affordable Care Act Implications (Cadillac Tax, etc.)
• How to Control Medical Costs?
• What is the Role of Wellness and Health Promotion?
• Assumptions:
– Medical plan design drives costs more than any other factor
– Wellness programs have limited impact on overall costs
– Health and wellness programs are worth doing as an adjunct to
future medical plan changes

Problems With Wellness
1. Inadequate or Misinformed Science
2. Incentives Often Don’t Work
3. Minimal Cost Savings
4. Behavior Change is Difficult
26
1.
Wellness is Not Science
• Science vs. Program Management
– “If you do this, then that will happen” - Richard Feynman
• Bad Science = Bad Advice
• Screenings – Harms May Outweigh Benefits
• Cholesterol – The Lower the Better?
• Overdiagnosis
27
Wellness Checklist – Good Science?
• Drink 64 oz. Water Every Day
• Take Multivitamins, Fish Oil, etc.
• Take a Baby Aspirin Every Day
• Get a Mammogram (or PSA)
• Take Lipitor! (Shouldn’t This be in the Water Supply?)
• Have a Drink of Wine Every Night
• Get an Annual Physical (and Screening CT Scan)
• Eat a Low Fat (or Low Carb) Diet
28
2. Incentives Often Don’t Work
• Carrot vs. Stick
• Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Motivation
• Can We Pay People To Be Healthy?
• “Health Insurance” is not Insurance, it is a Payment Plan
• Most Medical Costs are Paid by “Someone Else”
29
The Lancet – April 19, 2008
Can you pay people to be healthy? Emma Wilkinson; The Lancet - 19 April 2008 ( Vol. 371, Issue 9621, Pages 1325-1326 )
DOI: 10.1016/S0140-6736(08)60578-4
30
3. Minimal Cost Savings
• Can Medical Costs be Controlled by Wellness Programs?
• Impact on Costs Often Unclear
• ROI Always Problematic
• Prevention May Actually Increase Medical Costs
• Wellness Claims Often Not Credible
• “Best Practices” – Do They Exist?
31
32
4. Behavior Change is Difficult
• Entitlement Mentality Without Personal Accountability
• Prevalence of “No Risk Factor” Group is Very Low
• Obesity Trends Correlate With Growth of Wellness Industry
and Poor Dietary Advice
• Change or Die
33
What Motivates People to Change?
• Role of Leadership
• Policies and Legal Mandates
• What Everybody Else is Doing
• Individual Accountability for Health (Costs)
– Bring Back the “Insurance” in Health Insurance
• Prochaska’s Stages of Change
• Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic
• Drive – 3 Elements of Motivation:
– Autonomy
– Mastery
– Purpose
35
What We Believe
1. Healthy behaviors and preventable risk factors can have a
profound impact on health, performance, productivity.
2. Wellness programs are problematic, often underperform,
and current approaches may have little to no impact on
overall medical costs (but may be worthwhile for other
reasons).
3. Behavior change is difficult but can be catalyzed by many
factors within the bounds of company culture
