There are no “Yellow Pages” listings for wellness. Wellness is a recent awakening and is generating a great deal of interest. It is difficult to locate, compare and receive meaningful information on wellness providers and the services that they offer. Many are experts at what they do, but lack the marketing skills and resource to make themselves available to the parties most interested in their services.

By making the connections, everyone wins. NCW will provide resources through all mediums, including personal, internet based, telephonic and written, ranging from free assessments to sophisticated biometric testing.

Why is there so much interest in Wellness?

People are finally realizing how much lifestyle plays in illness and disease. 75% of all healthcare spending in the US can be attributed to unhealthy lifestyles. The cost of medical care and health insurance demands more attention on staying well, especially as more of the cost of healthcare is being shifted to employees and individuals.

Businesses can see a significant return on investment for offering a properly designed wellness program. Proposed legislation will make some wellness provisions mandatory.

Isn’t this the responsibility of the Health Insurance companies?

Many healthcare companies are offering some form of wellness services, either on their websites or through discount programs. They have not yet gone far enough or provided enough motivation for most people to become truly engaged.

NCW will work with your insurance carrier and broker to utilize the resources that are available, and then augment them with appropriate programs.

Do I have to change insurance brokers or insurance companies?

The goal of NCW is to work with existing brokers and carriers to enhance your current benefits. We invite brokers to become involved and offer specialized training on wellness and provide resources to them.
