Start by analyzing your data. Sick leave, healthcare and prescription drug data, Stop-Loss claims, and disability experience data can indicate your business’s need for greater education and early intervention.
Review sick leave and PTO policies to ensure employees have the flexibility they need to continue meeting with their physician.
Review annual out-of-pocket expenses to learn how affordable it is for employees to adhere to medical visits and prescription drugs.
Remind employees of resources available to them through their health plan and your employee benefits package. Encourage annual physicals and visits to the dentist to establish baseline details and uncover indicators of heart disease.
Encourage physical exercise for healthier bodies, particularly important for sedentary workers. Many companies encourage wearables, establish walking groups, have contests to encourage physical activity and weight loss.
Post heart health information in your employee newsletters or intranet. Here are several from the American Heart Association.
Consider holding a virtual wellness fair in partnership with your health insurance carrier or kick start a renewed focus on health, wellness and nutrition, at the same time as annual benefits enrollment for life insurance and supplemental health benefits like critical illness and hospital indemnity insurance.
