Preventative care can help employees control of their health and lower expenses

Three of every four dollars employers spend on health costs are used to treat chronic conditions such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, asthma and depression. These same conditions create workforce absenteeism costing U. S. employers $153 billion annually of lost productivity. About 86% of full-time workers are above normal weight or have at least one chronic health condition. Therefore, most of an employer’s health plan costs may be preventable with a strong wellness program.

Understand women’s health to improve productivity and reduce costs

Employers have a vested interest in their employees’ health. As the dominant health insurance provider, employers are continuing to experience rising healthcare costs and wondering how to influence this trend. An important part of influencing healthcare costs is to understand your employee populations and their differences.

Obesity is our new epidemic

Today, about 69% of the American population is considered overweight or obese. As an employer, you can play a key role in influencing the health and well-being of your employee population. Creating a culture of health and well-being — including programs and activities that focus on helping your employees stay healthy, improve their health, and learn to live well with chronic conditions — will impact cost long term.
