Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar on Wellness Programs will show you how to distinguish between real and fabricated wellness reports by identifying phony metrics, and choose a wellness program that best fits your organization.

Why Should You Attend:

The large majority of wellness outcomes and guarantees are simply made up, or if not, they are indistinguishable from fiction. If you accept these outcomes or guarantees, you will have lots of savings to “show” but will you have achieved anything? And what if your CFO looks into your results? CFOs – who are attending sessions analogous to this one in droves -- are growing increasingly skeptical of large ROIs for wellness and disease management. What would you be able to say? How would you refute their questions?

Don’t count on your benefits consultants or brokers to support you. This webinar will discuss the example of a major insurer who has adopted a strategy specifically designed to fool consultants.

This session will show how you can become a much savvier shopper for wellness services and reader of wellness contracts and reports, and keep the worst-case scenario from happening to you. Examples will be shown by name (maybe your vendor or carrier is among the culprits or maybe they’ve flown under the radar screen). By attending this webinar you will know what to look for and how to avoid a possible career-ending move by buying a wellness program that can’t pass your CFO’s sniff test.

Learning Objectives:

In this session you will learn how to distinguish between real and fabricated wellness reports, and see examples of both, by names.  In addition, there will be some interactive “pop quizzes” to help you identify phony metrics on your own.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Why wellness programs often if not usually overstate savings?
  • How to calculate your own ROI from your own wellness programs using a “wellness savings calculator,” which is based on real data?
  • Case studies in invalidity:  Cigna, Health Fitness Corp., Wellmed and others.
  • How to conduct a “plausibility test” on your population health management programs?

Free Handouts:

You will receive the Wellness Savings Calculator as well as links to copies of all the case studies and the author's upcoming article “Lies, Damn Lies, and Wellness Outcomes.”

Who Will Benefit:

  • VP-Benefits
  • VP of Human Resources
  • Benefits consultants and brokers
  • Medical Directors
  • Actuaries
  • Vendor executives
