If your company’s health insurance is provided by CIGNA, then we have great news for you! CIGNA is offering FREE biometric screenings to all new and renewing CIGNA clients. So what’s the catch you ask? CIGNA requires a minimum of 20 participants and the screening must be booked within 90 days of your group plan’s effective date. That’s it! Even better, these biometric screenings are done at the location of your business; taking a mere 20 minutes of each of your employees’ time. At a value of $41 per participant, CIGNA groups are highly encouraged to take advantage of this incredible offer!
If your company has already initiated a wellness program or is in the process of doing so, you are likely aware of the significance of a biometric screening. And if your reasoning behind initiating a wellness program is to reduce overall health costs, and let’s be honest, who isn’t trying to cut costs, then enticing your employees to receive a biometric screening should be your first step towards implementing a wellness program.
