Making Healthy Habits Stick in The New Year...

Eating healthy, getting in shape, quitting smoking, reducing stress - did you know your employer may provide tools that can help you achieve your New Year’s resolution? Some employer-sponsored benefit plans offer discounts on health and wellness programs and even gym memberships.  Sticking to your New Year’s resolutions can be a lot easier when you don’t feel like you’re breaking the bank.

“Do your homework and find out if your benefit plan offers any discount programs to its customers,” says Craig Guiffre, senior vice president for CIGNA Group Insurance. “CIGNA’s Healthy Rewards® program is available to all if its life, accident, disability and dental insurance plan customers and offers discounts of up to 60 percent on a wide range of health products and services including gym memberships, smoking cessation and weight management programs like NutriSystem® and Jenny Craig.”

In addition to discounts from your benefit plan, take advantage of your company’s Employee Assistance Program, also known as an EAP.  Many employers offer an EAP to help employees with personal issues like managing stress, which can impact your effectiveness on the job and your ability to focus on your goal to be healthier in the New Year. Some of the programs offered through an EAP help you manage issues like financial concerns, eldercare, childcare and personal and legal problems.

Please feel free to call our office for any questions you may have for your employer group benefit plans.
