The third annual Health and Wellness Incentives Use e-survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network found that there's been significant shifts in the adoption, promotion and evaluation of financial- and benefits-based incentives programs — as well as some novel ways incentives are utilized across the healthcare continuum in 2011.

Responses provided by 156 healthcare organizations indicate that benefit-based incentives are proving most successful at effecting positive health behavior change. According to respondents to the March 2011 survey, the top 5 benefit-based incentives offered are:

  • Reduced health premium: 52.9 percent

  • Free health coaching: 34.5 percent

  • Reduced/waived co-pay: 19.5 percent

  • Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution: 16.1 percent

  • Work site clinic: 14.9 percent
