AMERICA’S HEALTHCARE SYSTEM - CHALLENGING TIMES FOR EMPLOYERS & CONSUMERS

The $2.9 trillion annual spent in our current healthcare system represents 1/6 of the entire U.S. economy. The impact of rising costs is felt in many ways by employers, workers and their families.

Employers: According to an annual survey conducted by the National Business Group on Health, a nonprofit organization whose members include 66 Fortune 100 companies, employers expect their cost of healthcare benefits to rise 7 percent in 2014. The anticipated uptick would mark the second straight year that costs have climbed this quickly. “Rising healthcare costs remain a serious concern of U.S. employers, especially in light of the slow-growing economy. Employers worry about the very low growth in wages, and fear healthcare forces threaten to drive up costs even higher.” – Helen Darling, President and CEO, National Business Group on Health.

Consumers: The combination of forces described above continues to drive a decade long transformation to a consumer-centric, retail marketplace. The result is more consumers will be selecting their own health insurance, deciding where and how they receive care and ultimately paying more expenses out of their own pocket. These individuals are in search of trusted organizations that have their best interests at heart, help them navigate a complex healthcare system, and lower out-of-pocket expenses.

Combine this trend with consumers’ natural desire to live longer, have a higher quality life, particularly self-centric baby boomers, and you have a consolidation of extraordinarily powerful forces that are driving enormous value creation opportunities for the entities consumers look to for solutions.

Results of the program’s significant effectiveness in a year-long research study –which showed reduced health risks, including blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure – were reported in the peer-reviewed Population Health Management journal.

The Preventive Plan CM™ brings intensive disease management resources to individuals with costly chronic conditions. The Plan identifies an individual’s current and future health risks through a detailed health risk assessment, extensive lab work and biometric measurements. Based on these findings, the Member receives a personalized Preventive Plan, along with access to numerous online tools and ongoing support and coaching from a dedicated RN Advocate.

The Preventive Process
The health specialists at The Preventive Plan complete an analysis of your current and future health risks. You are then provided with a clinically sound roadmap to feeling better, looking better and being in the best health possible. Plus, it’s completely confidential. You can be assured LMHCC and your insurance company will never see your personal information.

By focusing on three key dimensions – assessment, intervention and rewards – The Preventive Plan motivates members to make lasting behavior changes that lower their health risks and make them healthier and happier.
