Need: A state teachers association was looking to motivate its’ members to live healthier lifestyles.
Solution: The HealthePERKS program offers financial incentives through the HealthePERKS Reward Card. As the participant accumulates points under the program, they redeem points for funds on their card. This gives the participant an ongoing reward for consistent behavior to improve their health over the long term.
How it Worked: To begin receiving points, participants filled out a submission form and signed an acknowledgment statement verifying their claim. This form was then sent to the program administration. Points were paid out to the program participants on a quarterly basis.
Result: A large number of the Association members participated in the program. There was an increase in wellness among the participants, including annual physicals, quitting smoking, loss of weight and regular exercising.
