Growing Demand for Employee Health & Wellness Centers to Help Florida Employers Control Healthcare Costs
Crowne Consulting Group and CareHere open more worksite health centers for employees of government agencies, school districts, and private organizations.
May 6, 2014 (Ocoee, Fla.) – Crowne Consulting Group, Inc., an employee benefits consulting firm collaborating with CareHere, LLC to operate over 25 worksite health and wellness centers throughout Florida, have announced an increasing number of employee health and wellness centers.
The latest centers will service Lake County Sheriff’s Office as well as employees of LifeStream, which is a behavioral health and social services organization servicing children and adults in Lake and Sumter Counties. There are approximately 1600 plan members covered under the Sheriff’s Office and LifeStream’s health plans, including employees and dependents.
At no charge to plan members (including dependents), the health and wellness center will offer primary care, occupational services, pharmacy, disease management, and wellness services such as nutritional coaching. Plan members will also benefit from zero deductibles, no copays, and free health risk assessments with lab work for evaluation of cholesterol, blood sugar, liver function, blood pressure and other bio-metric panels.
“An increasing number of private employers and governments are launching employee health centers to lower health costs by improving care, enhancing disease management, and providing easier access to care,” said Ray Tomlinson, president of Crowne Consulting Group.
In addition to corporations and governments, school districts are becoming self-insured and offering worksite care to save money for both employees and their districts. Levy County Schools opened an employee health center in February, and Indian River County Schools’ center is slated to be opening this summer.
