One of the hottest topics in corporate health today is how to get your employees more engaged in prevention, before becoming costly and dangerous medical care. Here are some highly effective new strategies you can easily implement right now.
Promote what you have
Encourage using the prevention benefits and resources that you’re already paying for, such as tobacco cessation, cancer screenings, Nurse advice line, and EAP.
Move science into coverage
Providing the right preventive services, such as the National Business Group on Health’s recommendations can provide a significant return on your investment.
Cover 100 percent of prevention
Encourage employees toward preventive care by providing 100 percent of first-dollar coverage through medical benefits or reimbursement under a health savings account. In other words, the employee should not pay anything even if they have not met their deductible.
