BHP helps many companies successfully implement wellness programs for their employees, reducing healthcare expenses, employee absenteeism, presenteeism and workers compensation claims, while simultaneously showing increases in employee productivity. A company's most valuable asset is its employees. Studies show healthy workers are not only more productive, but are less costly in terms of their healthcare benefits. A wellness program will help move employees who are in high risk categories to lower risk categories; thereby, lowering the claim cost for the employer and increasing the good health of their employees, a win-win situation for both parties. Remember the best claims discount is a claim that never occurs. Prevention is the key.

Disease Management Programs

Medicus' disease management program positively impacts the lives of members with chronic health conditions through multiple methods of delivering evidence-based information and working directly with them to change their health related behaviors. Specialized nurse educators help selected members better understand how to best manage their condition and put their new knowledge into practice. The result of this comprehensive program is much improved member compliance with their treatment plan, leading to reductions in avoidable healthcare expenses, such as emergency room visits and hospital admissions. In addition, indirect costs including absenteeism and decline in productivity are also mitigated.

Wellness Programs

Employer sponsored health and wellness programs promote employee wellness and disease prevention which aid in combating chronic healthcare conditions. Focusing on a wellness program helps employees make better choices for their health and well being on a daily basis.
