UnitedHealthcare and Qualcomm Incorporated, through its wholly owned subsidiary Qualcomm Life, Inc., are collaborating on a new wellness program, UnitedHealthcare Motion™, that provides employees with wearable devices at no additional charge and enables them to earn up to $1,460 per year by meeting certain goals for the number of daily steps.

The device, examined in a new infographic by UnitedHealthcare, not only tracks the total number of steps, but also tabulates the total number, frequency and intensity of the steps taken, providing a more accurate and comprehensive summary of the user’s daily activity. Employees can earn Health Reimbursement Account credits that can total up to $1,460 per year, while employers can obtain premium savings based on program participants’ combined results.
