Led by RGAX's Carmela Tedesco and RGA's Leigh Allen (with a rolling implementation from August 2020 through January 2021), the RGA Global Wellness Survey reveals the variety and complexity of strategic approaches to wellness among life and health insurers, as well as a common commitment to empower people to live their best lives. Find out the ways COVID-19 prompted insurers to re-prioritize wellness to benefit both insurers and insureds. Hear from an insurtech leader about how carriers can leverage wearable technology to enable wellness solutions and quantify the impact of these lifestyle behaviors on mortality. And join Peter Hovard, RGA’s Lead Behavioral Scientist, as he peels back the layers of some recent behavioral research on how insurers can best engage with consumers and how they might encourage ongoing wellness and wearables usage to drive successful, healthy outcomes.
