  • Reduced healthcare costs by 20 to 55 percent
  • Reduced short-term sick leave by six to 32 percent
  • Increased productivity by two to 52 percent

If you’re on the fence about whether or not your business truly needs a corporate wellness program, consider these 10 statistics:

  1. 86 million adult Americans have prediabetes (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  2. 34.6% of U.S. adults are obese (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  3. 19% of U.S. adults currently smoke (America’s Health Rankings)
  4. 90% of Americans eat more than the recommended amount of sodium for a healthy diet (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  5. By 2030, half of all American adults in the U.S. are expected to be obese (Fitness.gov)
  6. Obesity-related illness costs approximately $190.2 annually (Institute of Medicine)
  7. By 2018, it is estimated that obesity-related healthcare expenses will cost the U.S. $344 billion annually (Fitness.gov)
  8. A person with diagnosed diabetes spends approximately $13,700 annually on medical expenses (Diabetes.org)
  9. Medical costs decrease approximately $3.27 for each dollar a business spent on wellness programs (2013 Aflac Workforces Report)
  10. Companies that implemented a wellness program experienced a 28% reduction in employees calling in sick (Institute for Healthcare Consumerism™)

Benefits Risk Factors and Costs

  • Large corporations that provide health coverage are spending around $11,716 per employee each year. For Fortune 500 companies, that works out to around $585M per year.
  • Health care coverage costs for people with a chronic condition are 5 times higher than for those without such a condition.
  • Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the U.S., over 8 times that of diabetes. 1 in 3 Americans have high blood pressure and are at risk of heart disease. Most Americans don’t understand their heart risk condition and half don’t have it under control.
  • High blood pressure will account for $131B in costs on the U.S. healthcare system in 2015.
  • Employees with high blood pressure cost employers $760 more than others. If HBP deteriorates to heart disease, cost can increase to $10,000 more per employee per year.
  • With negotiated discounts, the average cost for for every stroke or heart attack is about $100k for Fortune 500 employers.  (Billed cost is $1M)
  • Each Fortune 500 company spends approximately $3.5M per year on heart attack health insurance expenses. Large employers also offer health insurance to spouses increasing potential costs to $7M per year.
  • 80% of heart disease and stroke can be prevented.
  • Controlling high blood pressure reduces the chance of heart attack and stroke by 75%.
  • Taking steps to control blood pressure can save employers $44M annually.

Wellness Programs ROI

  • Workplace wellness is a $6 billion dollar industry in the United States.
  • Companies with more than 20,000 employees spend around $878 per employee on wellness programs.
  • There are two primary kinds of wellness programs: Lifestyle Management and Chronic Disease Management.
  • Lifestyle management wellness programs focus on:
    • Fitness and healthy diet (yoga, gym memberships, wearables, healthy snacks)
    • Employees with health risks, such as smoking, diet, exercise and obesity. These programs use smart technology with behavioral modification from clinicians and coaches to help participants reduce risks and delay or avoid chronic conditions.
  • Disease management wellness programs focus on helping employees who already have a chronic disease to take better care of themselves. These programs use:
    • Clinicians or coaches using smart technology
    • Self-management and high engagement using smart technology
  • Disease management addresses immediate health problems, whereas lifestyle management mitigates longer-term health risks. Another way to say this is: lifestyle programs help reasonably healthy people get healthier. Disease management programs help unhealthy people manage their condition and get healthier.
  • Disease management wellness programs ROI is driven in large measure by a nearly 30% reduction in hospital admissions.
  • ROI is not equal for all types of wellness programs or all populations. 87% of savings gained through wellness programs are produced by just 13% of the employees – those with chronic conditions like high blood pressure.
  • Moving employees from high- and medium-risk to low-risk chronic disease status yields an ROI of 6 to 1 for annual health care claims.
  • ROI for wellness program investment is only $0.50 per dollar for healthy employee lifestyle management but $3.80 per dollar for disease management.
  • Even with lower participation numbers, disease management programs contribute more to overall savings than lifestyle management programs.
  • Wellness programs using clinician and coaches for lifestyle or chronic disease mangement produce ROI in 3-4 years. Chronic disease self-management solutions can yield ROI in less than 1 year.
  • Employees who self-monitor blood pressure and become more aware of and better understand their can reduce their BP by 9mm Hg systolic on average.
  • Reducing blood pressure by 10 pts cuts the risk of heart disease and stroke by 50%.

As these statistics demonstrate, high blood pressure and chronic heart disease are contributing to employer health care cost above and beyond any other health issue. While many wellness programs demonstrate little ROI,  corporate wellness programs targeting chronic disease management, in particular heart disease and high blood pressure,  can yield quantifiable ROI.
