GemCare Wellness works closely with physician practices to expand their services into chronic care management as well as provide advantages to patients with high deductible health plans by offering access to low cost diabetes and other durable medical supplies. GemCare has been an advocate for the Primary Care Physician and our combined services bring tremendous benefits and value to patients.
Currently, it is becoming increasingly difficult to offset these increases with new plan designs. Employers are forced to shift more costs to employees, which puts them at risk of upsetting and losing good employees.
Attaching a wellness program to health care premiums offers options to employers that address the root cause of their health care premium increases. The concept is simple: reward employees who embrace wellness, and shift costs to employees who do not. This gives you options for your clients in helping them deal with their premium increases.
