From the abstract:
The Affordable Care Act will present many employers with a choice: offer affordable health insurance coverage to all employees or face civil penalties. When implemented correctly, a wellness program can be an effective way to decrease the employer’s cost of insurance coverage. Employers should consider the various laws affecting wellness programs to decide whether and to what extent they are right for their business and its employees.
