Información bibliográfica Nov. 2008, Vol.50, No.11, p.1209-1215. Illus. 36 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to test whether participation in an incentive-based online physical activity programme was associated with a moderation in employee health care costs. Health care claims trends from 2003 to 2005 were analyzed among a matched sample of participants and non-participants. The average annual health care costs for participants increased by USD 291 per year compared with an increase of USD 360 for non-participants. Participants had a significantly smaller increase in inpatient hospital costs, heart disease costs and diabetic costs compared with non-participants.
