Participating in a multi-session program to learn more about financial management and/or healthcare consumerism will meet the participation guidelines for this incentive. 

Why is this Important?

Financial health is an important component of well-being. Research supports a link between financial savings and healthy lifestyle habits as well as an association between better health and less health care expense.  Taking an active role in managing finances is associated with less stress, increased feelings of security, and greater financial confidence.  Gallup studies have found that financial security has a more significant impact than does income alone on employee well-being.
