Health Promotion & Disease Prevention • Screenings • Health education • Awareness • Supportive work environments • Activities Aims to reduce behavioural risk factors in order to improve employee health thereby resulting in lower healthcare cost and increased productivity. Gabrielle Bourne Productions 3
  • 4. Small to Mid-sized “Perceptions” • Lack of time, money and expertise. Larger employers are more equipped. • Lack of reward – healthcare insurance premiums based on “community rating,” not employee impact. An employer could implement an excellent program, reduce health risks and even healthcare utilization yet premiums would likely continue to rise. However medically high risk employees are medically high cost employees, dependent on increased risk factors. Gabrielle Bourne Productions 4
  • 5. Small to Mid-sized “Misperceptions” • Contributions towards employee health coverage are tax deductible* • Employers with employees who have “pre- existing” conditions cannot be denied group health coverage by insurers, albeit they may charge higher insurance premiums. *Employees cannot deduct health insurance premiums when bought on their own. These are “false” beliefs some employers hold to be true. Gabrielle Bourne Productions 5
  • 6.

  • 8. Benefits: External and Internal “Perception” • A successful health promotion and wellness program can provide leverage for negotiating with insurers and workers compensation carriers. • An experience employer can make more informed decisions related to purchasing of healthcare benefits or considering self-insurance. • Community impact perception and reputation of an “employer who cares.” Gabrielle Bourne Productions 8
  • 9.
