A healthy partnership

The health care reform law passed by Congress in March will result in a number of changes in medical care and coverage for Boeing employees and their families. This article is part of a series to help employees understand the most significant changes that will affect them. These changes start in 2011 and continue over eight years.

Weighty decision

Employees who want to take charge of their well-being might consider some tips from 23-year Boeing veteran James Kiely, who weighed 298 pounds (135 kilograms) when he decided it was time to regain his health and get in shape. Just as Kiely did, employees can take the Boeing online Health Assessment and sign up for health coaching. Since the beginning of the year, Kiely has lost 47 pounds (21 kilograms). But the drop in weight is only part of his healthy new lifestyle.
