New Initiatives Help Plan Members Better Manage Healthcare Needs and Spending

NEW YORK, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), one of the largest mutual life insurers and a leading provider of employee and voluntary benefits for small and mid-sized companies, today introduced enhanced Wellness features for all Guardian medical plans. Employers and their employees will now have access to a broad range of resources and services to help them take an active role in managing their health.

The Guardian Wellness Program offers new interactive features that will enable participants to better understand their health care needs and keep track of treatments. Consumers will have access to an array of advice and information resources to empower them to make better health care decisions as well as alternative medicine discounts to give them more options for staying healthy.

A comprehensive wellness program is an integral part of a company's medical plan. Wellness resources provide employees with education and tools to assess their medical history, habits and lifestyle, identify risks and take proactive steps to maintain their health and control disease. While any benefit that helps keep employees healthy is a valuable one, a well-constructed wellness program plays an important role for employers too -- especially during a slow economy. Healthy employees and those who are effectively managing chronic conditions take time off from work less often and are more productive. As the workforce contracts, employee productivity is an important ingredient to a company's ongoing success. A healthier employee population has fewer claims, which helps to control medical premiums over the long term.

"Employees don't have to get sick to get the benefits of Guardian's health plans. Guardian now offers one of the most comprehensive suites of wellness resources in the benefit
