Health/Fitness Incentives for Employees

I suggest offering Health and/or Physical Fitness incentives to all goverment employees. By offering a cash or time off incentive for employees for taking better care of their health, the government could save on insurance claims, sick days, not to mention work productivity, etc. This idea could work with the HealthierFeds program. A criteria would have to be set up to determine what would constitute recieving the incentive. Some ideas could be physical fitness test, results of physicals from doctors, etc. The point is by offering a small incentive for preventive action it could save the goverment a lot of time and money in the end.
