According to the 2014 survey from the National Business Group on Health, employers executing outcomes-based incentive programs, most often tie outcome-based incentives to BMI, cholesterol, blood glucose and blood pressure. Depending on the survey, between 70%-90% of employers tie incentives to BMI (or another measure of obesity), approximately 70%-75% tie incentives to blood pressure and cholesterol, and 55%- 60% use blood glucose as a measure. Incentive values typically range from $25-$150 for each biometric in range. The median incentive value is $100-$125, depending on the biometric. Approximately 50%-60% of employers offer outcome-based incentives in the form of cash. The remaining provide the incentives through premium reductions or HSA/HRA/FSA contributions.
