  • Discuss how employers should approach different levels of wellness program involvement, such as engaging with the carrier’s wellness program, offering a health risk assessment, and administering payroll deductions
  • Discuss best practices for payroll deduction administration, such as applying a discount to an employee’s premium, changing premium amounts, and giving money back to employees based on their wellness program participation
  • Discuss the importance of having a bona fide wellness program if an employer implements a tobacco surcharge
  • Discuss the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) regulations regarding 30 percent incentive levels for employer-sponsored wellness programs under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA)
  • Discuss the U.S. District Court case involving the EEOC’s rules, including the court’s decision to vacate portions of the EEOC’s wellness rules under the ADA and GINA as of January 1, 2019
  • Provide a recommendation for structuring wellness programs for 2019 in light of the court’s decision
