  2. According to the Kaiser/HRET 2013 Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Benefits, 77 percent of firms that offer health insurance also offer some type of wellness program, but just 10 percent of these offer financial incentives to workers who participate. The survey question asked people specifically about programs that provide financial incentives, but it’s possible that some respondents answered this question based on the fact that their employer offers some type of wellness program, regardless of financial incentives. The ACA encourages employers to increase their use of incentives in wellness programs beginning in 2014, so it’s also possible that the share of firms offering these types of incentives has increased since the 2013 employer survey.
