Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredDo dark chocolate covered strawberries make your mouth water? You betcha. And they’re catching on faster than Lady Gaga’s hit singles. Cleveland Clinic and a number of others are helping companies like GE, LaFarge and Eaton to implement such benefits. Other major companies like IBM have joined this band wagon and are super pumped they did. Weight loss competitions, rebates for healthy-lifestyle choices for you and your family, discounted or free gym memberships (if you use it enough), cancer screenings, weight control, stress control, breathing free (tobacco cessation), flu shots -- the list goes on. These wellness and prevention services and incentives save businesses significant dough by decreasing costs and increasing productivity (ideal combo, no?) and they’re great for you and your family too. It’s a win-win situation. Plus, some involve reduced co-pays or premiums.
