Prevention Makes a Difference
Overall medical costs have been increasing annually on a national basis and are expected to do so for years. In a typical U.S. company, 15% of employees are responsible for 78% of medical expenses. These same employees are also responsible for 70% of lost productivity in the form of sick days, poor quality work, and other inefficiencies. Unhealthy employees tend to become less healthy over time, increasing the costs to their employer.
