White Paper Summary

Employers nationwide are confronting the many challenges of economic inflation, and the growing costs of medical care are high on the list.

Employer medical plan costs are expected to rise 5.6% per employee in 2023, according to the National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans from Mercer. As for workers’ compensation costs, NCCI released a report that estimates that medical costs, which make up the bulk of workers’ comp spend, will rise 2.5% to 3% this year.

With both workers’ comp and health care costs on the rise, many employers are exploring the onsite health care options as a way to help drive these expenditures down. Onsite programs can be tailored to fit the needs of employers of any size, and in any industry. By offering their employees convenient access to care, employers can have a positive impact on employee health and productivity. Additionally, in today’s competitive job market, employers are also offering onsite health care as a benefit which helps them attract and retain talent.

“Concentra takes a concierge approach to onsite program development,” said Mike Rhine, senior vice president and COO of onsites at Concentra. “A good onsite program should be designed to meet the specific needs of each employer and their employees and any other eligible dependents. This is only possible when there is collaboration between the employer and the provider when the focus is on improving health and wellness and optimizing productivity.”
