How to Get Ahead of the Employer Healthcare Cost Curve to Effectively Manage Risk and Cost Form 2017-02-07T13:48:34+00:00


What we don’t know can hurt us.

In order to effectively manage risk and escalating healthcare costs, we must first ask ourselves – how can employers better understand their own employee population health status and what can they do about it? With nearly half of the United States adult population having one or more chronic conditions and the other two thirds either overweight or obese, which can lead to chronic illness and additional spending, how do we determine who is contributing to the overall costs today and who has the capacity to cost a lot in the future? Also, how do we help prevent these health issues and their related costs from escalating even higher.
