In results published in The Consumer Mindset Survey, 87 percent say their health is good, and only 23 percent say they are overweight or obese. Yet, more than half of those consumers actually report height and weight that categorize them as overweight or obese.

Getting workers and other consumers to take responsibility for their health is the challenge for employers. Account-based plans let employees see what health services cost, which has encouraged some to make better choices like seeking preventive care and choosing lower-cost options.

Taking a health risk questionnaire (also known as a health risk assessment) can help because it focuses on specific health needs. Incentives also play a role in getting workers to make lifestyle improvements, the survey found.
