  • Employer ParticipationObjections Paying for this already through disease management (they dont reward physicians) Health plans already have programs (but self funded employers arent funding them)Administrative costs too high (cut by 2/3 with local resources)Too much on their plates ROI not solid enough Participants so far include 91,300 covered lives from3MCarlson CompaniesGEMedtronicUPSWells Fargo
