Avon, OH, November 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The producers of Inside Business are pleased to announce that Bravo Wellness, LLC will be featured in an upcoming episode on Wellness Solutions – Improving Clinical Outcomes and Reducing Healthcare Costs as part of the show's Medical Minutes series.
In today's economy, businesses are trying to reduce costs wherever they can. In many cases, that means cutting health insurance benefits or eliminating them completely. Business owners desiring to keep from taking such extreme measures are turning to results-based wellness programs offered by Ohio-headquartered Bravo Wellness, a niche provider of consulting and administrative services related to incentives for employee wellness.
"Results-based wellness programs are a 'win-win' for both the employee and the employer," says Jim Pshock, President of Bravo Wellness. "Providing employees with a choice of benefit plan designs, based on their participation in wellness programs and their individual results helps them recognize a direct connection between their health and the cost of benefits."
The CDC recently reported that 75 percent of all healthcare spending is spent treating conditions that are lifestyle related and largely preventable. Bravo Wellness believes that the reason for poor lifestyles is often not a lack of education, but rather a lack of motivation. By introducing a "live well, pay less" philosophy, employees are motivated to make healthier choices.
Bravo Wellness creates customized wellness programs to meet the specific needs of each business. Employers typically tie 15 or 20 percent of their total health insurance cost to the wellness program, and set moderate goals for things like blood pressure, cholesterol, body fat and tobacco use.
Filmed on location in West Virginia, the five-minute segment tells the success story of Bravo Wellness customer, Simonton Windows. Simonton Windows' officials and employees, and Bravo Wellness President, Jim Pshock, share their thoughts with viewers on the benefits of results-based wellness programs.
