Unfortunately, for most businesses, the second largest expense behind payroll is their employees health benefits.
Also, for most businesses, this cost increases every year. The average increase is about 9% per year.
However, small businesses have a way to save on cost while still giving their employees access to quality medical care. Direct Primary Care (DPC) estimated employer savings are typically around $250 per employee per month for healthcare expenses.
More importantly, DPC practices like Staunton Primary Care, can work with your employees to make sure they are improving their overall health and help prevent expensive medical problems.
In fact, our patients have unlimited direct access through phone, email, text, and the patient portal. This means less time away from work.
Furthermore, we can usually schedule same or next day and after-hours visits can be available if needed.
Studies have shown that DPC patients have 59 percent fewer ER visits, spend 30 percent fewer days admitted to the hospital, are referred to specialists 62 percent less often, have 65 percent fewer imaging, and 80 percent fewer surgeries.
Even more, the benefits to the company are real and tangible:
This means not only are employees healthier, employers get to save money.
As fellow small business owners we understand the fine balance of taking care of your employees while maintaining a healthy budget.
We, at Staunton Primary Care, would be happy to schedule a time to come meet you or show you around the practice if you would like more information.
