Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
AvMed will partner with BeniComp, a health plan administrator specializing in wellness. BeniComp has introduced a supplemental wellness program that ties a member’s lifestyle to their out of pocket healthcare costs. “It’s like a good driver discount for your health insurance,” said James M. Repp, AvMed Senior Vice President. “It rewards consumers for taking an active role in improving their health.”
The AvMed “BeniFIT” program integrates AvMed’s products with BeniComp Advantage technology, a mechanism that measures and tracks healthy behaviors to help determine premiums and deductibles. AvMed “BeniFIT" is available for large employers.
“This product is a great solution for employers who recognize the value of getting their employees engaged in healthy behavior,” added Repp. “It is also in line with our strategy of helping members take charge of their health.”
“BeniComp will help AvMed design a wellness incentive and health promotion plan that will in turn provide members with a tangible reward for healthy behaviors,” said Doug Short, President of BeniComp Group. “The goal is to reward employees who are engaged in their health and provide them with an option to have lower premiums.”
BeniComp has been recognized for their work in wellness and incentive-based health plans. They earned the Best Business Practice of the Year Award from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for rewarding and managing healthy lifestyles which resulted in lower health insurance cost.
