According to University of Michigan researcher Dee Edington, a business with 85 to 100 percent
participation will control health-care costs if 75 to 85 percent of its workforce has two or fewer health risks. To get 90 percent participation, businesses need to provide per-employee incentives of about $1,000. Unfortunately, employees in poor condition are the least likely to manage their health. In this group, only 1 in 5 uses programs to manage chronic conditions. These people represent the biggest health-care expense.
