Health insurance company pays employees to sleep

Posted at 6:32 PM, Apr 15, 2016

Health insurance company Aetna has a voluntary program for its employees where they could earn an extra $300 if they get at least seven hours of sleep each night.

For every 20 days an employee logs sleeping seven hours or more, they can get $25. 

If employees have a Fitbit or similar device or app that tracks sleep, they would sync that with the wellness company's program to automatically track how much sleep they are getting.

The numbers can also be manually entered.
