New standards imposed by The Department of Health and Human services will make many wellness solutions obsolete, but not ours.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Strict rules for corporate wellness companies:
In July 2013, Orriant is launching a new tool to help employers optimize their participation rates, and maintain compliance with regulations. New HHS regulations will soon be implemented allowing employees to receive wellness incentives if their employer offers outcome-based, health-contingent, compliant wellness programs. Orriant has announced they have been compliant with these standards for nearly a decade. Orriant also boasts 70-90 percent participation rates, which is nearly twice the amount of the typical employee wellness program. The new tool will help employers to maintain the perfect balance in their relationship with employees for optimal participation. These results are turning heads and encouraging companies to consider implementing Orriant’s programs in an effort to lower employee healthcare costs. Unlike other corporate wellness companies, Orriant is all about results.
Orriant provides resources and wellness incentives that encourage employee participation.
While the new tool is part of the solution for optimal participation, the remaining value relies upon diligence of service. Orriant is home to a one-of-a-kind, results-driven program that pairs participants with highly trained and widely experienced coaches. Orriant health coaches have a minimum of a four-year degree in a health-related field and have passed a robust training certification. Not only do participants work one-one-one with their coaches but they also have access to a unique, online tracking tool. Participants work with their coaches to set personalized goals. No matter what the limitations or challenges, every participant can experience wellness success through Orriant’s program. Employers will also be able to see a healthy culture change in their company as a result of implementing Orriant’s proven methodology. Understandably when employees are healthier, Orriant customers see a reduced number of healthcare claims, lower employee healthcare costs, and increased productivity.
Companies and employees are receiving the benefits of achieving mutual goals.
The new tool slated for a July 2013 release helps illustrate that employers must provide discounts to employees equally to maintain compliance. Federal compliant wellness incentives are available for employees who participate in a non-discriminatory wellness program. Most corporate wellness companies do not comply with these standards. Orriant’s compliancy is drawing the intrigue of companies and individuals alike. Participating in an Orriant program has proven to lower monthly premiums for employees. Orriant’s high participation rates translate into a greater impact on the health of an employee population.
What the new tool also shows, beyond compliance, and potential participation increases, is the benefits of a long-term approach to better health. Orriant’s highly developed wellness program serves as a constant source of improvement and inspiration for clients coast to coast. By choosing to implement Orriant’s strategies, clients see an average of 80 percent of their employees instigating healthy, positive changes in their lives. Orriant is helping companies across all industries to improve employee health and lower employee healthcare costs. To learn more, go to http://www.orriant.com.
