The best way to beat the over-complicated health care system is for employers and employees to unite as health plan stakeholders with a mutual desire for quality, affordable health care for all.
Alignment and savings also go hand in hand. Self-funded employers can implement well-being programs and back them up with incentives for employees to participate. Whether it’s a bonus to get a vaccine, a discount on employee contribution for visiting a primary care doctor, bio-metric screenings, or rewards for participating in activities like corporate challenges, savings from a healthier lifestyle should benefit both the company and the employee. It’s essential that you link these programs to your “why” and strive to make health and well-being a core value integrated into the workplace culture.
