At the core of the Nabholz Wellness Program is a results-based incentive program with an emphasis on the top five drivers of our health insurance claims: cholesterol, blood glucose, blood pressure, obesity, and nicotine use. Employees and spouses covered under Nabholz’ health insurance plan are screened once a year, either through formal in-house testing or with their own physician. At the end of the year, 99% of covered participants receive a monetary incentive based on their results.
Because the program focuses on improvement, employees and spouses who “miss the mark” are encouraged to work on any problem areas and retest later in the year to earn more incentive money.
Other elements of the program include monthly gift card drawings for covered employees and spouses who complete their yearly physicals and biannual dental exams. And our First Step program provides an annual reimbursement allowance for all employees and spouses to help pay for things like gym memberships, running/walking shoes, and tobacco cessation aids. By hiring a doctor as a full-time Nabholz employee and setting up partnerships with certain clinics, our employees can see a doctor for free — with no deductible and greatly reduced waiting times.
