The Health Watch Advantage

Description

The Health Watch Advantage is a customizable series of packaged preventative health screenings that targets workers’ most prevalent and modifiable risk factors. Delivered on an annual or biannual basis, participants receive onsite test results with educational information & follow up counseling. Provided to employers on a cost-shared per employee per month basis (PEPM), program expense is spread over the course of a year creating a cost effective, measurable, and sustainable Wellness Benefit.

Goal

To reduce the cost & utilization of healthcare to employers by providing employees the first hand awareness & intervention steps needed to proactively manage their own personal health risk factors. When delivered effectively, the benefit saves time, money, and improves the overall quality of life for all participants.

Program Feature & Benefits

  • Services smaller companies generally underserved by most providers
  • Creates an affordable benefit that is cost shared over time
  • Establishes basis for long term client relationships & business retention
  • Costs less than a cup of coffee & muffin on a monthly basis
  • More affordable than a gym membership or Weight Watchers program
  • Saves time, money, and lives by reducing the “healthcare trend”

Summary

The Health Watch Advantage program delivers high quality biometric screening services & outcome reporting on a timely and efficient basis. By applying the PEPM principle, its cost shares a worthwhile benefit with employees over the course of a twelve month period by means of slight payroll deductions linked to their usual health insurance contribution. This allows employers/employees a convenient and cost effective means to buy into an effective Wellness Program that might not otherwise be available to them. A turnkey process with experienced professionals would provide a competitive advantage and fill a need in generally underserved markets.

In partnering with an established provider, broker, third party administrator (TPA), or healthcare professional with local ties to the communities they routinely serve, the program would only strengthen the client relationship and could prove to be a valuable and noticeable distinction during Open Enrollment periods.
