FitLogix® & Affordable Care Act

FitLogix Meets Resonable Alternative Guidelines

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) allows employers to provide a wellness incentive program that is based on specific employee health standards (known as "health-contingent wellness programs"). Incentives can be tied to participating in a wellness activity or achieving a health outcome for any of five health risk factors:

  • BMI
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol
  • Glucose
  • Tobacco free

Under the ACA, employees can be charged a differential of up to 30% on their health insurance premiums if they don't meet their wellness plan's goal for BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol or glucose and up to a 50% differential if they are a tobacco user. However, to charge this differential employers or health plans must offer a "Reasonable Alternative" program to employees. FitLogix is a comprehensive weight management goals that meets the requirements.
