The aspects of the Vivere program are the biological, psychological, social and organizational aspects. The biological aspect, useful in the determination of risk factors, relates to personal habits and to family history of certain diseases; the psychological aspect covers self-esteem; the social aspect analyzes interpersonal relations; and the organizational aspect relates to the workplace environment (both physical and cultural).

All salaried employees are eligible to participate in online challenges and the BCBSM Wellness suite of products at no additional cost to them whether or not they take medical coverage through Chrysler. Employees are encouraged to participate in the Healthy People Rewards program utilizing the Connect 2Bfit challenges. They receive a total of $480 for successfully completing two core challenges, each worth $240. The $480 can be used as a premium offset, applied to other benefits or used to purchase additional vacation days.
The program relies on the utilization of social media as social media helps connect members in different ways. They can support each other and help others meet their personal health goals. Team members do not have to be employees.
Employees and spouses participating in the program have visibly seen behavioral change and are making choices that can positively influence their lives. They are aware of their health assessment numbers, are talking to their doctors and have an action plan to get or stay healthy. When employees receive their reminder text message from Connect 2Bfit to input their steps, they take notice and enter their data. They want to walk more, share it with their coworkers and family members and overall want to improve their health. Simply by wearing a pedometer every day, they are taking steps both mentally and physically towards better health.

The Plan provides eligible employees and their eligible family members with a comprehensive health care package shortly after the beginning of employment. Four different health plans promote preventive care, well visits and patient education.
In 2012, 5,647 salaried employees and their eligible family members in the United States enrolled in one of these participation-based health care plans.
Salaried employees have two medical plan design options: Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and High Deductible Health Plan with Health Savings Account (HDHP/HSA).
The benefits include coverage for medical, dental, vision, mental health/substance abuse services, prescription drugs and wellness programs. Employees may enroll in the option that best meets their health care needs.
The Standard Care Network (SCN) allows members to manage their own health care and to visit almost any doctor or hospital, with the insurance company paying a predetermined portion of the total charges. The Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) is a group health insurance plan where the physicians and facilities work directly for the HMO. Employees are required to select a primary care physician who will then refer their medical needs to the system’s providers.
The PPO offers a managed system of health care through a selected group of physicians, clinics and hospitals that have signed a contract with the PPO. The HDHP/HSA provides medical coverage with the ability to build tax-free funds to cover future medical expenses.
