The rising cost of health insurance is becoming a huge financial burden for all employers, large and small. However the financial strain is particularly hard on small business owners. Worse yet, despite record profits for many of the larger insurance companies, the insurance industry has been shifting the cost of healthcare to employers via higher premiums, employees via higher co-pays and deductibles, and the physicians via massive fee discounts. The government, recognizing this disturbing trend, has been developing Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Medical Savings Account (MSA) so individuals can control how their dollars will be spent.
To ease the burden of rising costs, Spine & Injury Center of Grand Junction has developed an innovative new program: SICenter Plus+. This program offers small, medium, and large employers the opportunity to provide a significant new benefit for their employees. Call our office for more details.
Large employers in Colorado and around the country are plagued primarily by two significant financial stresses: skyrocketing healthcare costs, and rising worker’s compensation premiums (in addition to medical and indemnity costs associated with job injury). Properly delivered care can help lower those costs. Research dating back decades consistently demonstrates that conservative physical rehab and manipulation therapy can return a patient to work in half the time, with half the cost, and half the disability, compared to traditional medical management. Additionally, recent studies suggest that chiropractic directed management results in lower drug costs, less outpatient diagnostic tests, less surgery and less reports to OSHA. Additionally patients using doctors of Chiropractic report higher satisfaction and greater improvement in overall health.
Remember, drugs and hospital care remains the two main cost drivers in this nation’s escalating healthcare crisis. Obviously, shifting towards conservative Chiropractic care can lower those costs. Forging a relationship with a local Chiropractic physician makes good business sense.
