Orriant announced they have been aligned with the new Health and Human Services (HHS) rules for almost a decade. These rules outline standards for all employment-based wellness programs which go into effect in 2014.

Orriant focuses on providing nondiscriminatory health programs in order to reduce the costs of healthcare.

How is Orriant already in compliance and ahead of other wellness companies?

Immediately after HHS announced their new rules for employment-based, health-contingent wellness programs Orriant responded by stating their compliance with these standards. Orriant has been offering corporate wellness programs where any individual participating is able to receive the full amount of financial incentive regardless of their health factors. This stipulation is at the core of the new regulations, which are similar to the stipulations in place for Federal wellness incentives. Orriant CEO, Darrell Moon says, “Our proven program and ideal alignment with these new rules, has companies knocking down our door.” Paired with the financial incentive, Orriant adds patent-pending health coaching for individuals. These resources allow each employee their own customized goals as well as the resources needed to meet them. The company provides their solution as a means to lower employee healthcare costs, and maintain a zero-based cost solution for employers.

What is the basis for compliance?

As part of the announcement confirming the compliance of their worksite wellness programs, Orriant CEO, Darrell Moon, explained what constitutes a compliance with the rules. “Employers must offer a ‘reasonable alternate standard’ to all individuals participating in an outcomes-based, health-contingent wellness program who do not meet the company standard.” Moon is quick to point out the critical combination required to lower employee healthcare costs: accountability, proper incentives, and a solution that employees see is having a measurable impact on their health.

What are key elements of a valid wellness program?

Orriant’s results-driven methodology leaves no room for question when it comes to what is and can be accomplished. In conjunction with the HHS rules and stipulations for Federal wellness incentives, Orriant’s accountability-based program offers a “reasonable alternative standard” to all who do not meet the initial standard. Orriant provides on-going customer reporting clearly delineating the impact of their unique program.     Their robust on-line tracking system allows wellness participants the ability to record their progress. Along with lower employee healthcare costs, Orriant customers see a boost in productivity, reduced number of healthcare claims, and fewer employee sick days. With these new rules from HHS, it would benefit business leaders to ensure a successful transition to 2014 with accountability-based corporate wellness programs. Orriant offers results and a clear understanding of what businesses needs to do to succeed under new healthcare regulations. For more information, please visit: http://www.orriant.com.
