Preventive Services

With rising non-communicable disease prevalence and escalating health care costs around the world, preventive health care is an important element to employee’s health and well-being as well as the employer’s bottom line. The goals of prevention are to:

  • Encourage individuals to avoid or delay disease by practicing healthy lifestyles;
  • Identify individuals who could benefit from treatment for a condition or complication about which they are unaware; and
  • Prevent further disability among individuals with established disease.

Forward-thinking employers know that providing 100% preventive coverage to their employees is cost-effective. However, to gain the full value of prevention benefits, employees and other beneficiaries must use them. Employers can increase the uptake of preventive services by creating evidence-based prevention and wellness programs and effectively communicating benefits.
