NU Online News Service, May 7, 2004, 2:18 p.m. EDT – CIGNA Corp., Philadelphia, wants to get its health plan members to exercise more.[@@]
The managed care company is trying to reach that goal by adding a 10K-A-Day benefit to its Healthy Rewards health and wellness discount program.
“10K-A-Day” standards for 10,000 steps a day, and it is a rough equivalent of the “30 minutes of daily physical activity” recommended by the U.S. Surgeon General, CIGNA says.
Plan members who sign up for the 10K benefit will get a pedometer, a guidebook and access to a Web site where they can log their steps, CIGNA says.
