Page Content Unparalled WellnessThe Health Benefits Trust has the most generous wellness benefit in North Carolina – in fact, we are confident that if we put our wellness program up against any other provider in the entire country, we’d come out on top. Implementing wellness incentives that help prevent and identify illness is a proven way to achieve long-term cost savings. Employers benefit by having reduced claims, and employees have access to health education and earlier interventions if health issues do arise. We cover wellness exams and preventative screenings at 100% with no age or frequency limits, and in addition to several traditional wellness programs, we pay for members to participate in programs like Naturally Slim and TrestleTree tobacco cessation. Our Wellness Benefit provides coverage for preventative services such as routine physical exams, screenings, immunizations, and routine laboratory tests and X-rays. Think of it as a way to cover the routine tests and exams you need in order to determine the state of your health, saving your regular coverage for illness or injury.
