Statement of Michael Dermer President and CEO, IncentOne
LYNDHURST, N.J., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement may be attributed to Michael Dermer, President and Chief Executive Officer of IncentOne:
The link between healthy behavior and lower health costs has never been
clearer; consequently, many forward-thinking employers and health plans
are offering incentives to their employees or members to encourage that
behavior. UnitedHealthcare has joined this progressive community by
announcing a pilot program to offer financial incentives for members who
participate in free health screenings and meet certain standards. The
health care community will follow this project with great interest, as we
anticipate that it will demonstrate how incentives can lower costs and
improve health and productivity.
