Access to chiropractic coverage lowers overall health-care costs
According to one study, benefit plan members with access to chiropractic coverage, compared with those without coverage, had lower annual total health care expenditures. As well, benefit plan members with chiropractic coverage reported lower overall back-pain related costs.
The bottom line is when your employees have chiropractic coverage, they spend less on health-care overall. Chiropractic is a non-invasive treatment method that can reduce pain, headaches and other conditions without the use of prescription medications.
Providing employees with regular chiropractic benefits through extended health care plans plays a vital role in managing costs. It can improve organizational health and productivity and play a greater role in improving bottom line results by reducing absenteeism and disability.
Prevent future claims by prioritizing spinal health
In Saskatchewan, back injuries in the workplace account for more than 17 per cent of all Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) claims.
Chiropractors can also provide advice and guidance on preventing work-related injuries, including information on improving workplace ergonomics and stretches and exercises to keep employees working comfortably. No referral is necessary and access to treatment is very rapid.
