2023 Benefit Guide
The cost of healthcare and other benefits continues to rise year after year. We analyze costs and try to manage increases by reviewing our plans and benefit providers. We are conscious of the fact that changing health insurance plans is often difficult for our employees, so whenever possible, we work with our benefit providers to create solutions that will work financially and will be less disruptive.
Employers across the country face the same challenge. But the fact is that 70% of healthcare costs are due to preventable conditions that cost the U.S. healthcare system about $100 billion every year. Smoking, obesity, and high blood pressure are all preventable or treatable conditions that, left untreated, can lead to such illnesses as cancer, type II diabetes, or heart failure.
The University continues to promote a culture of health and wellness, establishing a work environment that promotes healthy lifestyles, decreases the risk of disease, and enhances the quality of life.
The goal of Central State's Wellness Program is to promote behavioral changes and motivate each person to move from high-risk behavioral factors to healthy or low-risk factors — and keep them there.
