Wellness Incentives, Equity, and the Five Groups Problem

Source: The Commonwealth Fund, January 20, 2012 Harald Schmidt’s article entitled “Wellness Incentives, Equity and the Five Groups Problem” describes how employees that are offered wellness incentives belong to one of five groups: “the lucky ones,” the “yes-I-can” group, the “I’ll-do-it tomorrow” group, “the unlucky ones,” and the “leave me alone” group. He offers insight on how policymakers can respond to the inequalities that exist among the groups.
