Mike Fischer quoted in article “Clearer rules for wellness programs? Perhaps not”


Following is an excerpt:

Large employers offer workers hundreds of dollars in wellness plan incentives to get on the path to better health. Under Obamacare they have leeway to offer even more, but the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had posed a roadblock, until now.

"We now know we can offer our employees a 30 percent discount on their health insurance if they will participate in a health risk assessment," said Michael Fischer, an attorney with Quarles & Brady, who advises employers on employment issues. "That is a huge step forward."
