Quoted in MarketWatch Johnson & Johnson, for example, pays employees $500 to submit their biometrics and other health information; J&J then offers eligible employees an additional $250 if they get pregnancy counseling, enroll in a disease-management program or get their colonoscopy on time. The “tailored and targeted messages” paired with the monetary incentives are a “great way to bring people to participate in the program,” says Dr. Fikry Isaac, the company's vice president of global health services.  – February 26, 2013
