Will Obamacare Offer Funding for Workplace Health Programs?

  • Funding for Workplace starts with obesity prevention

    Even though Obamacare may offer incentives for healthy eating, similar to the already established Health Savings Account, most of the funding will go to schools. This is because school lunches need much more overhaul than jobs. In a job, adults can choose where to eat. Often , kids cannot make a choice of where to eat.

  • ACA Has Incentives for Wellness Programs

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides incentives for employers who implement wellness programs for their employees. One of these wellness programs is a workplace health program which promotes healthy behaviors. Healthy workers are more productive and spend more time working and less time sick at home. Workplace health programs simply make sense to the economy.

  • Obamacare will offer funding for workplace health programs.

    Obamacare will offer funding for workplace health programs. This is because of the fact that it would be very easy to include funding for workplace health programs within Obamacare. It is a very smart and logical move to have funding for workplace health programs within Obamacare and it's policies. It will be included.

  • Yes to some extent.

    I do believe that Obamacare does offer funding for workplace health programs. It requires employers to provide birth control on the insurance, among other things. As far as I understand this and other programs are now required by insurance companies at now extra charge. So in a round about way it does offer funding.

  • No that is beyond the scope

    Workplace funding for healthcare is not part of Obama Care. Those who have work place healthcare are going to see increases in the amounts they owe and decreases in what is covered. This is part of the negative effects that the new Obama care plan is going ot have on this nation.

  • Obamacare is push companies the insure their workers

    No, I do not believe that Obamacare will fund workplace health programs. I believe that the plan is to push employers into providing health care for their workers. Many minimum wage jobs make large amount of money off the work of their workers, but do not pay enough for worker to be able to provide their own health care. I believe everyone should have the option of having health care. In the end if preventive measure are taken health care will less expensive to the employer.

  • No, it is not part of the law.

    No, Obamacare does not offer funding for workplace health programs, because it is not part of the law to provide funding for work programs. The health care law requires employers to meet a bunch of new requirements for the health care they provide. But the law does not give them any money with which to meet those requirements.
