A new year is around the corner and for many, that means evaluating their health status and lifestyle habits. This year, we encourage you and your employees to add preventive care to your list of new year resolutions.
Regular preventive care can help reduce the risk or severity of chronic conditions like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), 90% of the nation’s $3.8 trillion in annual health care expenditures are for people with chronic and mental health conditions. Preventing or managing these conditions can reduce these costs, as well as improve quality of life and productivity.
Preventive care services are covered at no additional cost to your employees and include annual routine checkups, immunizations, cholesterol screening, contraception and family planning, colon, breast, and cervical cancer screenings, and more. Regular exercise, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and quitting smoking are also important preventive measures everyone can take.
Share the resources below with your employees and add preventive care to your 2023 new year resolutions list.
