Key Take Away:
This webinar will make you understand the legal ramifications of implementing a medical self-care program, and provide “know how” and strategies to empower employees to make better health care costs decisions.
One way to reduce managed health care costs is to reduce the overall demand management for medical services. This is in light of the fact that approximately 55% of all emergency room visits are for non-urgent problems and about 25% of all physician visits could have been treated at home. Since the average doctor medical assistance costs $199.00 and the average E.R. visit costs $1,349.00, a great deal of money can be saved through more appropriate use of the health care management system.
Demand can be managed by providing self-care information that helps employees become more knowledgeable about when they need medical assistance and when they can take care of themselves. This is a very important aspect of consumer driven health care.
