A Step In The Right Direction
Now this is the kind of thing I like to see. A HMO offering a simple online program for their members to incorporate more walking into their lives. I would guess that a lot of people tend to feel overwhelmed by all of the diet and exercise options available to us these days. Hence, a lot shy away from trying anything at all. But here comes an easy way to start yourself off that also adds some monetary incentive. You know as well as I do that people will do just about anything to save a buck! I am all for insurance companies adding healthy incentives to their clients. I myself started getting yearly physicals just so I could get a discount on my health plan. I say continue on with this positive reinforcement! It's something we need as a group that has been continually hit with a lot of negative in our lives.
