    Diabetes Management
    in the Workplace

    Each year over 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes. Even more alarming is the 88 million American adults with prediabetes – and eight out of 10 don’t know they have it. Without lifestyle change, many of these individuals will go on to develop type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is an enormous economic burden for employers – both in direct medical costs and dollars lost from reduced productivity due to illness and disability.

    More than 90% of American adults with diabetes are overweight or obese and most have other symptoms that increase their risk of cardiovascular disease. Considering many adults with type 2 diabetes spend their day at the workplace, there is an opportunity for employers to put aggressive risk factor management programs in place to effectively mitigate the high medical plan costs associated with diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

    Fertility

    The World Health Organization and the American Medical Association recognize infertility as a disease that impacts one in eight Americans. Many employers are now moving toward a more comprehensive fertility and family building benefit that supports an increasingly diverse employee population and offers a more holistic approach. In fact, a recent Willis Towers Watson survey showed that 63% of employers are expected to cover fertility services beyond the diagnosis of infertility by 2022.
