For EmployersSee how we can help your company save lives while at the same time reducing its total healthcare spend.
“We believe our patients and their families want more health, not more treatment. We understand that the goal of healthcare is better health at a reasonable cost and we are committed to providing just that.”
REDUCING TOTAL HEALTHCARE SPEND WHILE IMPROVING OVERALL WELLNESS OF EMPLOYEES
Helping you reduce your total healthcare spend by focusing on the real costs (direct and indirect) of behavioral health issues requires an in depth review of claims data, which you have access to. We know how to read the data and will work with you to identify what these behavioral issues are really costing the company, and then we will help you find ways to do better. Please also contact us to discuss education and awareness programming we offer. We will work with your EAP to create the proper education and awareness often needed to prevent or at least catch the disease in its early stages. We know it’s far easier to treat a patient in his or her early stages than once the symptoms have become acute. We are also helpful with assessing a patient’s needs and the level of care that he or she may or may not need. Lastly, we are eager to enter in to direct contracts with self insured companies based on a value based reimbursement model. We can look at the total cost of care of employees suffering from these diseases: to include direct and indirect costs such as lost productivity and absenteeism, as we help employers see the value in supporting their employees in addressing and treating behavioral disease.

Listen to Melissa Hill, LCSW, ACHT, Director of Business Development and Organizational Wellbeing (SunCloud Health) at the Kennedy Forum, discuss the need for outcomes reporting to help employers and insurance companies understand what providers do and don’t do well. The goal is give employers the data to compile a list of preferred providers based on performance, not a relationship or reputation.
If anyone should be interested in value creation for people struggling with mental health and addiction it should be the employers who rely on their employees to be productive and healthy members of the workforce. By one estimate substance use disorders cost the nation an estimated 276 billion dollars per year with much of the cost resulting from lost work productivity and increased healthcare spending. Given that 3/4 of the people with drug or alcohol problems are employed, employers have a major stake in supporting employees in engaging in effective and timely treatment.
