Employers & Workers/Wellness and Sustainability
Employers are learning that employer-sponsored health care coverage can mean a lot more than just offering health insurance. Along with traditional health care insurance coverage, employers are incorporating wellness and sustainability into their coverage for employees. By ensuring that the workforce is healthier overall, employers are cutting down on health care costs as well as time lost at work. While access to health care services is extremely important, it is just as important to make people healthier so that they are less reliant on health care services. Incentives to keep people healthy are key, including employer incentives and messaging to consumers on people's individual responsibility for their health and health care.
