Program History: In 2007, Nabholz Construction implemented a wellness program to help contain the rising cost of health insurance. The program has evolved from an “activity based” to an “outcomes based” design for employees in 45 states.
Program Components: Outcomes based program, credentialed wellness team, bi-annual screenings with hand delivered results, on site/near site medical clinics and fitness facilities.
Program Impact: With participation from all employees/spouses, 99% earn a monetary incentive each year based on their results. This level of engagement has saved Nabholz over $1 Million dollars per year for 5 years leading to a 0% increase in premiums for 2 years and last year a 4.5% decrease.
Because of its unique approach, Nabholz was featured on HBO’s obesity documentary “Weight of the Nation”. Nabholz has consulted with the Department of Defense, former President Bill Clinton on his “Health Matters” campaign and many other businesses throughout the region and across the country.
