Top Incentives for HRA Completion

Top Incentives for HRA Completion This Week's Challenge: Combined with other 'big data' analytics, aggregate results from health risk assessments or health risk appraisals (HRAs) become the building blocks of population health management programs designed to bend the healthcare cost curve.

What We Learned: HIN's Health Risk Assessment e-survey conducted in October 2013 captured how healthcare organizations are using HRAs to improve population health, including HRA eligibility, HRA administration formats, and more. According to survey respondents, the top incentives offered for HRA completion are:

  • Reduced premium or deductible: 51.5 percent

  • HSA contribution: 24.2 percent

  • $25 to $100 cash: 21.2 percent

  • Other: 9.1 percent

  • $101 to $200 cash: 9.1 percent

  • Merchandise: 9.1 percent

  • Trinkets/T-shirts: 9.1 percent
