Companies are Taking a New Approach to Healthcare Benefits

Mike McDonald on Sep 13, 2017 11:30:00 AM

Businesses across the country are changing the way they think about healthcare coverage and employee engagement. The current and outdated system has been in place for 30 years and is responsible for the cost of healthcare rising so high, that it severely cuts into employee paychecks and employer profits.


And all of this healthcare spending has not slowed down the catastrophic shift in the overall health of the U.S. population in the least. For example, in 1960, the total of all Americans having type I and II diabetes was only 0.6%. From the first human civilizations all the way until 1960, the disease rate stayed level. Then came the invention of processed and packaged food, catapulting the rate of type II diabetes to its current rate of 14%. Similar hikes have been seen with other deadly diet-induced conditions. Transformations of this scope typically have been spread over eons, not decades, and will alter our collective DNA in negative ways we cannot even imagine or afford.


The current state of health in the U.S. also directly correlates with increased depression and drug abuse such as opioid addiction. 

So what’s the answer?

Personal interaction, education and the old-fashioned human touch with leverage solutions like the Prime Advantage Healthcare Program. Best of all, the program doesn’t cost employers anything and even creates immediate savings. This model drives costs down year after year, as opposed to dealing with consistently rising premiums. It’s a proven method that produces 90% employee engagement in a deep Wellness Program and shows how small daily modifications create big results and drive down overall costs.
