In today’s fast-paced world, juggling work responsibilities with healthcare can be daunting, especially for the growing number of adults with chronic health conditions. As the statistics show, six in ten adults have at least one chronic condition, making it a prevalent issue in the workplace. Many employers may not fully grasp the substantial impact these conditions have on their bottom line.
The Cost of Chronic Health Conditions in the Workplace
Employers shoulder a significant financial burden when it comes to employees managing chronic health conditions. On average, the annual cost for an employee with a chronic condition range from $15,000 to $45,000+ in direct medical expenses. This figure, staggering as it is, only scratches the surface. It doesn’t factor in other costs such as absenteeism, presenteeism, disability claims, employee resignations due to chronic health issues, turnover expenses, and the impact on an employee’s overall quality of life.
The Power of Medication Adherence
One crucial factor contributing to these costs is medication non-adherence. In fact, non-adherence to prescribed medications stands as the leading cause of preventable medical expenses worldwide. It’s a problem that affects approximately 50% of adults with chronic conditions.
