Onlife Health, Inc., a national wellness company based in Brentwood, and the Maine Education Association Benefits Trust (MEABT), a not-for-profit employee welfare benefit plan, have announced a partnership to provide wellness programs and services for employees in 600 Maine schools.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Onlife Health’s Live On Wellness program is available to active and retired employees, teachers, related personnel and their dependents who are covered by the MEABT health insurance plan. Participants in the program begin their wellness journey by completing a health assessment that provides instant recognition of the individual’s status related to health risks and lifestyle habits as well as guidance and resources in areas to improve. Depending on participants’ preferences, they can then complete self-directed courses online, track activities related to exercise and daily fruit and vegetable consumption, or join a variety of online challenges including a daily steps competition using a pedometer supplied by MEABT and Onlife.
Onlife Health Coaches are also available to work directly with individuals to help guide, motivate and keep participants accountable for making and sustaining healthy changes. As they work to reach their goals, participants earn points that can be redeemed for pre-paid debit cards, valued at up to $150.
"Onlife Health provides comprehensive, customizable and user-friendly wellness programs that are designed to engage and challenge participants of all ages, in diverse geographic locations, in entertaining ways,” Jed Dodd, CEO of Onlife Health, said in a release. “We are proud to be working with MEABT to help the organization achieve its goal of creating healthier employees, reducing healthcare costs and promoting wellness in communities throughout Maine.”
