“The Affordable Care Act of 2010 will, as of 2014, expand employers’ ability to reward employees who meet health status goals by participating in wellness programs–and, in effect, to require employees who don’t meet these goals to pay more for their employer-sponsored health coverage. Some consumer advocates argue that this ability to differentiate in health coverage costs among employees is unfair and will amount to employers’ policing workers’ health.”

health affairs provides employers a detailed brief on workplace wellness programs, the changes stemming from the proposed health care reform law and the issues to watch.

A lot of people who take clsaess that way enjoy it; that doesn’t mean that it is a respected form of education. Let me start by saying that you can ignore what most of them say about being accredited, since they are often accredited by different organizations than accredit the traditional universities, and those organizations are not well-respected. Just the fact that they can call themselves accredited doesn’t mean that they are good, or that any of your credits would transfer elsewhere.Also, the schools which call themselves online colleges are for-profits. They are usually far more expensive, and deliver far less, than equivalent programs in traditional universities. In fact, the average graduate of these schools finishes far more in debt than does the average graduate of a traditional program, even though they didn’t get the whole college experience and weren’t paying for facilities or qualified faculty. That doesn’t mean that you can’t get part, or even in some cases all, of your education online. Many traditional universities these days offer online clsaess. Since they have to offer courses which meet the same standards as their traditional clsaess to keep their overall accreditations, those programs are generally better than those at online colleges , which are mostly concerned with collecting your tuition money.
