CREATE A PAY-FOR-PREVENTIONTM CULTURE
Good health begins with personal responsibility and decisions that will help prevent the development of chronic diseases.
According to the CDC, inactivity impacts 40% of the cost of lifestyle-related chronic diseases and has a significant impact on productivity and medical costs even before chronic conditions develop:
With Virgin HealthMiles' Pay-for-PreventionTM approach, you can create benefits programs that emphasize personal responsibility and healthy behavior. This approach creates a culture of prevention that not only rewards the right behaviors, but also aligns your interests and those of your employees in order to drive down lifestyle-related health care costs.
Virgin HealthMiles can serve as your stand-alone wellness program or play a central role in your existing wellness initiatives. Ochsner can assist with the development of a customized program to include wellness seminars, health screenings and healthy menu choices.
"Studies show that 50 percent to 70 percent of the nation's health care costs are preventable. much of that expense goes to treat a few chronic conditions that are closely linked to behavior, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer. Bad genes and bad luck matter, of course. But behavior--exercise and choice of diet--matter most."
