Fitness Incentive Healthcare

Let's create a national healthcare system, that is single payer, but has cost reduction incentives for being healthy. For example, let's say the healthcare premium is $100/month. If you purchase more fresh fruits, veggies and meats (Rather than fast food) and commute to work on your bike, or exercise regularly, your monthly premium can be reduced to $80/month. Or perhaps there are credits you can earn based on healthy lifestyle decisions that result in a tax refund or direct monthly premium reductions. I have no idea how the "health decisions" will be measured or accounted for. but it seems like a great opportunity to reverse the direction of our health in this country.
