A National Institute of Health study found that the difference in total healthcare cost between those that exercise and those that didn’t averaged $669 per year. Similarly, the Health Management Research Center at the University of Michigan found that a wellness program that moved “high-risk” employees (those with two of four high-risk characteristics such as smoking, little exercise and being overweight) to “low-risk” resulted in an average annual medical insurance-cost reduction of $618.
According to the Wellness Council of America, a review of 32 studies of corporate wellness programs found claims costs were reduced by 27.8%, physician visits declined by 16.5%, hospital admissions declined by 62.5%, disability costs reduced by 34.4%, and incidents of injury declined by 24.8%.
