Bravo helps employers and health plans leverage wellness to strengthen their business and optimize healthcare investment.


It’s a fact that behaviors have a tendency to spread from person to person over time.¹ So doesn’t it make sense that including spouses in your wellness program would contribute to a program’s long-term success?

Research suggests that when spouses are included in key wellness initiatives, employers experience increased employee participation (twice as high²) and are more likely to see meaningful, lasting change. Our book of business confirms this—when spouses play a proactive role in their health, the covered employee’s health improves more rapidly as well.

And consider the potential impact on claims! Spouses typically represent only about one-fifth of covered members but generate nearly one-third of the healthcare costs for an organization.¹
