Topic: Reigning in Employer Healthcare Costs
Breakfast included with $25.00 registration
The cost for employers to provide healthcare coverage to their employees is growing at an exponential rate. Many employers are spending more on health care costs than they are on reinvesting money back into their company. It is reported that Starbucks spends more on healthcare than coffee beans and GM spends more on healthcare than steel. Fending off these accelerating healthcare costs is becoming a business survival necessity for those who truly pay for it- the employers. Using a new view of "health instead of healthcare" and without the typical costly "wellness" programs, employers can take control of these escalating costs all while doing more to encourage improvement in the health and well-being of their employees. Join Steve Levin, PT, OCS, FAAOMPT as he presents innovative steps to switch focus from insurance industry focused healthcare to the broader role of employee health in an effort to save money.
