What’s a healthy workforce worth?
There are many good reasons that health benefits are one of the most valuable benefits of employment. Nothing is more important than taking care of your health and the health of your employees and family. When it comes to health care, it can be expensive and hard to find the right care for your team. That’s why it’s important to have quality, affordable local health care that everyone can access. And, to make sure everyone gets the best care possible, direct primary care puts the patient at the center of care.
Health care is expensive and can be confusing, so it’s important to ensure that your employees have access to simplified, quality, affordable health care personalized to them. This helps keep your employees happy and motivated, which is important for their long-term success.
Over the last few years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, employers have noticed that there are big differences in health equity and they’re starting to realize that they need to do more to help employees with their healthcare.
With employers and workers facing the highest inflation and possible recession in a generation, soaring health care costs are an even bigger problem than if the economy was healthy. Employer health care costs are expected to rise by 6.5% in 2023, bringing him over $13,800 per employee, according to Aon. No wonder that a Willis Towers Watson survey found that two out of three U.S. employers (67%) plan to prioritize controlling rising healthcare benefits over the next three years.
Businesses will be focused on providing employees with affordable care options that create value and deliver desired healthy outcomes for their employees and reduce employer costs. By offering membership based primary care, employers reduce opportunities for employees to delay or think twice about seeking care due to unmanageable costs. Direct primary care provides unlimited visits with no copay or deductible. Same day or next day appointments are also available as the last thing employers want, is for employees to delay or think twice about care, due to cost or lack of available appointments. That will only exacerbate existing problems, resulting in poor outcomes for the employee and higher costs for the employer.
