This is sponsored by my insurance company and will give me a $1000 discount on my health insurance in 2013. If I can get my husband to participate I can get a $600 discount on his premiums. But since he has mild dementia it may be a big project for me to get him to comply as he does not like to exercise and he thinks he can have unlimited sodium in his diet...however, they may not expect too much of him since he is normal weight, has good blood pressure and is not diabetic, does not smoke or drink and he is only on 3 prescriptions as opposed to my 13 prescriptions.
I am going to encourage him to sign up, too and then I may save $1600 on next year's premiums (hope the premiums don't go up more than that!!). I am a bit suspcious of the insurance company as last year the spouse only had to get a nicotine test to qualify for a discount (of $200).
