Employer Health Services Offerings
Reducing present and future costs
Health care cost increases are forecast by many to continue growing faster than normal inflation for the foreseeable future and it appears that Health Reform will have little or no immediate impact on that reality. Additionally, any health plan – and any organization – will seriously underperform if it does not directly address such things as retiree medical costs, avoidable health risks and the consequent medical and productivity costs and consumer-driven health care plans.
However, organizations can reduce the present and future costs while addressing the business risk and expense control in different ways. Deloitte helps organizations tackle their health care transformation head on, using a strategic and comprehensive realignment of an employer’s overall health care program, including medical and pharmacy plans, care management and wellness programs and corporate culture. It is built on a foundation of consumerism and if designed and implemented correctly, can result in significant benefit cost savings.
What we offer
The common perception of wellness is that the investment is highly discretionary, suitable mostly for organizations with little financial pressure, strong cultures and highly engaged and sophisticated workforces and no need to quantify the return. Meaningful wellness programs can help improve organizations in nearly every circumstance and are increasingly essential to position an organization competitively with regard to productivity, talent management and operating expense.
