What is a wellness program?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Wellness Program."

You might think of health insurance as something that's there to take care of you when you get sick. With a wellness program, the focus is on keeping you healthy, maybe through preventive care, health screenings or discounted fitness club memberships. Companies offer wellness programs in the interest of reducing their health care costs.

"To your health!" is not only a toast, but also the guiding principle behind a wellness program, which might be offered by your employer.
