Benefits of Health Excellence:
First is the elimination of healthcare costs. Currently in the United States, eighty-six cents of every healthcare dollar spent is used to treat or manage chronic conditions. A full 80% of those conditions are completely preventable through awareness, education and lifestyle modification. Participation in our wellness program provides you with the tools and resources needed to identify and mitigate your potential health risks. If we can collectively eliminate the need for preventable procedures and treatments, the costs for everyone are reduced. In a Medical Cost Sharing environment, where member’s pay each other’s expenses, it is incumbent on each of us to achieve the highest level of health and wellness possible.
The other reason to utilize this platform is more personal. Everyone is unique and different. By participating in this program and engaging with your Wellness Coordinator, we can help you identify the particular area of health and wellness most important to you and customize a program to help reach your goals.

A National Institute of Health study found that the difference in total healthcare cost between those that exercise and those that didn’t averaged $669 per year. Similarly, the Health Management Research Center at the University of Michigan found that a wellness program that moved “high-risk” employees (those with two of four high-risk characteristics such as smoking, little exercise and being overweight) to “low-risk” resulted in an average annual medical insurance-cost reduction of $618.
According to the Wellness Council of America, a review of 32 studies of corporate wellness programs found claims costs were reduced by 27.8%, physician visits declined by 16.5%, hospital admissions declined by 62.5%, disability costs reduced by 34.4%, and incidents of injury declined by 24.8%.
