For full disclosure I need to say that last year I did a Wellness Coaching class. I am somewhat familair with health and wellness coaching and some of the companies out there.
Wellness is the new buzz word for companies. This is not a bad thing but does raise a new set of questions.
Wellness coverage is usually provided with entities that have a relationship with the company providing the health insurance. The health insurance company may subcontract with a wellness company that offers health fairs. At these health fairs there may be some type of screening studies as well as health and wellness counseling.
I doubt that their "regular" health insurance covers non-invasive studies without indications. I also doubt that any "wellness package" add-on will cover screening non-invasive studies performed by a third party.
I don't know if this helped answer the question or not. The best thing is for the large companies to look to their health insurance for answers. They may even be able to talk directly to the company handling the wellness portion of the contract. Again, I would be very surprised if they will pay for screening exams performed by a third party.
