CARMEL, Ind., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CNO Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: CNO) today announced the opening of OurClinic@Carmel, a new medical facility offering onsite health care and wellness coaching for its employees and their families. The clinic is part of a comprehensive companywide initiative designed to increase employee focus on wellness and prevention.
"The opening of the clinic demonstrates our ongoing commitment to helping our employees maintain good overall health, and we are thrilled to extend our benefit offerings to now include onsite medical care," said Ed Bonach, CEO of CNO Financial Group. "By providing access to the broad range of healthcare services onsite, we will not only offer a convenient and affordable approach to healthcare for our employees but also contribute to a healthier and happier workforce."
Starting today, CNO's 1,500 Carmel-based employees and their family members (age 13 and older) who are enrolled in the CNO health plan can receive affordable medical care through OurClinic@Carmel.

All preventive care services, such as annual physicals, wellness screenings and related lab work, are provided at no cost to employees. Other free services include onsite prescriptions, personal health coaching and online health programs.
CNO has partnered with Indianapolis-based OurHealth, a provider of onsite health management services, to provide the clinic's infrastructure, supplies and physician services.

Our independence and integrated health management approach enables us to help CNO employees navigate a complex healthcare system with confidence. CNO is on the leading edge of a more progressive employer healthcare strategy that benefits their most valuable resource, their employees. We are thrilled to be a part of it," said Ben Evans, CEO of OurHealth.
