If you are reading this because you are concerned about health care costs for your company, you are not alone--U.S. health care cost is forecasted to grow to $2.8 trillion ($9,216 per person!) by 2011, and corporations in Boston are no exception. Prevention of health problems is the only hope to offer savings in health care. Once a health problem has developed, it is too late to save money, because treatment is very expensive. Every dollar spent on prevention pays back many times over in savings due to less development of disease, so it is much more efficient to spend money on prevention than it is to spend money on treatment.
The U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services says that almost all companies with more than 750 employees now offer some kind of health improvement program (although the scope of those programs varies considerably). The agency reviewed health promotion and disease prevention programs of nine large employers and estimated that the companies saved anywhere from $1.50 to almost $5.00 in health-related expenses for every dollar spent (The average savings was $3.00 for every $1.00 spent).
The ideal health and fitness organization to help your company is one that can offer a variety of custom-built solutions which will enable you to maximize your return on the dollar invested, and be willing to quantify those results.
