Just 10% of disability claims account for more than 50% of total medical costs*. Employers and CFOs understand that the cost of an absence stretches beyond replacing wages to leaving work undone and missing deadlines; ultimately having an overall affect on productivity and opportunity costs. Employers will benefit greatly by taking measures to examine the business impact of their health plan and integrate it with their disability and absence management programs.
Employers who integrate health and productivity have benefited from:
- Reduced costs and lost time
- Increase in employee satisfaction
- Decrease in workers’ compensation, disability and absence rates
- Improvement in productivity
