Editor in Chief, the American Journal of Health Promotion, Senior Fellow, The Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO).

Can the same be said for most workplaces in America? If you study this question, you will find that all roads lead to the extraordinary scholarship of Harvard Business School's Amy Edmondson.

Authors:
Paul E Terry

Am J Health Promot 2019 Jan;33(1):9-12

American Journal of Health Promotion and President and CEO, Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO).

Some would argue that if taking an examination to receive an incentive is not mandatory, it's voluntary no matter the size of the monetary reward. Others have concerns with how often employers use the word "required" when communicating how employees can earn an incentive. This in spite of clear rules that indicate "health contingent" incentive designs (those based on health measures rather than on completing activities) are an either/or proposition. Read More

Authors:
Paul E Terry

Am J Health Promot 2019 Feb;33(2):166-169

Editor in Chief, the American Journal of Health Promotion.

A recent District Court decision held that the Affordable Care Act (ACA), absent a tax penalty relating to the individual mandate, was unconstitutional. This follows on a Circuit Court decision that the ACA wellness provisions should be nullified. This editorial reviews the similarities and differences between the rulings and asks if a reasonable person would believe that offering financial incentives aimed at supporting a modicum of effort at self-care is rational.
