Join Dr. Susan Strauss and Discuss HIPAA and Specific Discrimination Laws and Their Requirements For Compliance in Wellness Programs!

The Discrimination laws will refer to civil rights discrimination such as: GINA (genetic information non-discrimination act), ADA (American Disabilities Act), Title VII (1964 workplace anti-discrimination act), ADEA (Age Discrimination in Employment Act, ACA (Affordable Care Act) and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). The Challenges include: designing, developing and implementing an employer wellness program for employees without violating the various civil rights laws and the ACA. The financial incentives include: healthcare cost containment when implementing a wellness program, diminishing liability when designing the program with the required laws in place.

The federal government believes wellness programs can cut healthcare costs and decrease the cost of employer-sponsored health insurance by promoting health and preventing disease. The new federal regulations have divided wellness programs into two types with specific rules for each. A major piece of the regulations addresses the issue of employee discrimination based on health/disability, age, gender and other protected classes. The U. S. Department of Labor, the Treasury, and Health and Human Services regulations require that regardless of the type of wellness program, every individual participating should be able to receive the full amount of any reward or incentive, regardless of any health factor. Specific regulations have been created to prevent employee discrimination in wellness programs.
