Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives every year. In the US, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women across most racial and ethnic groups, causing approximately 64,700 deaths each year. Aside from the human cost, heart conditions cost the US approximately $219 billion each year in healthcare services, medicines and loss of productivity. For employers, the challenge is to offer sufficient healthcare benefits to protect all employees against the risks of heart disease while offering long-term support to those most at risk.
For employees with chronic conditions like diabetes, the risk of contracting heart disease is much greater. To develop a more inclusive working environment, employers need to prioritize the needs of those most at risk by employing support and management strategies that alleviate the costs of living with a chronic condition and protect against absenteeism.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from benefit experts and clinical experts about how to start mitigating the risks of poor heart health in your company.
