Return On Investment With Onsite Medical Care
Crowne Consulting Group Reports Million-Dollar Savings For Employers With Worksite Healthcare.
June 14, 2016 (Ocoee, Fla.) – Crowne Consulting Group and its partners are helping employers lower medical costs through onsite and near-site health and wellness centers for employees, retirees, and dependents.
By providing pass-through services without mark-up costs, Crowne’s Florida-based team and its medical affiliates are helping employers reduce the cost of typical insurance claims. Employers save money, while plan members reap the benefits of free and easy access to primary care, screenings, wellness programs, and prescriptions.
“For the employee, there are no co-pays for the office visit or for most prescriptions,” said Carol MacLeod, Chief Financial Officer at Lake County Schools. “For the District, every patient visit that is seen by the wellness center instead of another physician saves the District in excess of $150. We have contained our health care cost increases to 2.66 percent per year when trend has been in excess of 9 percent.”
Crowne Consulting Group and its partners are helping other employers save millions of dollars through the implementation of customized onsite-care programs. President Ray Tomlinson emphasizes that an advanced, patient-centric approach can boost clients’ financial successes. Pasco County Schools, for example, is showing major returns since launching onsite care in 2011.
According to the superintendent at Pasco County Schools, Kurt S. Browning, “The District has saved/avoided over $26 million in health and medication expenditures and employees have saved over $4 million in co-pays for office visits and generic medication. We estimate that over 90 percent of our insurance eligible employees have used the medical clinics at some point since inception.”
