EEOC Removes Incentive Limits from Final Wellness Plan Rules

Effective Jan. 1, 2019, the EEOC’s 30-percent incentive limit for employer-sponsored wellness plans no longer applies because it was vacated by a federal court. Consistent with the court’s ruling, the EEOC has removed the incentive limit from its wellness plan rules. This Compliance Bulletin summarizes this development and explains what it means for employers that sponsor wellness programs.
