Reduce Benefit Costs
Medical claims expense is a function of the health of your workforce. Unhealthy employee lifestyles add to the total cost of your health care plan. Unhealthy lifestyles also affect every employee by increasing cost sharing and health plan contributions.
Use the CDC Obesity Cost Calculator to get an idea of your cost savings by influencing only one of several healthy lifestyle contributors to your overall expenses.
- Duke University Medical Center reports obese workers are significant contributors to worker compensation expenses:
""..analyses have found that obese workers filed twice the number of workers' compensation claims, had seven times higher medical costs from those claims, and lost 13 times more days of work from work injury or work illness than did non-obese workers." -Duke Medicine News and Communications
- Unhealthy lifestyles also inflate lost-time and absenteeism costs. Absenteeism slows down business velocity and can create workload imbalances among staff.
A study from Brigham Young University Department of Exercise Sciences states "...obese employees were more than twice as likely to have seven or more absences due to illness during the past 6 months."
