Today's question: What's the solution to a healthcare system where employers' costs are skyrocketing, while workers' benefits, health, and productivity are going the opposite direction? The simple answer is, it's going to take a totally new approach.
No wonder employers like Jackson are frustrated. His company's contributions to employee health premiums have risen 147% since 2000. And costs are impossible to predict from year to year. The situation is reaching a critical point.
Jackson knows that lifestyle-related conditions, like obesity and smoking, are driving 75% of healthcare costs. Every year, smoke breaks alone account for about 10 days of work lost. The average obese worker with at least one chronic condition misses 8 more days of work. And obesity averages an additional cost of $1,351 per employee. It adds up to a huge burden for employers. A couple of years ago, Jackson offered a wellness program. But it was a patchwork effort that never caught on, and never moved the needle on productivity.There has to be a better way. And now, there is. It's a game-changing solution called Humana Total Health. With Humana Total Health:
