Better health is good for business

Learn how our wellness solutions work

Full-time American workers who are obese and have a health issue miss 450 million more days of work than healthy people. This costs U.S. jobs $153 billion in lost productivity —each year.

It's time to make changes

At Anthem, everything we do is designed to achieve two goals for employers: reduce the impact of health care costs on their bottom line and improve the health of their employees. When it comes to wellness solutions, we've identified key areas such as weight, tobacco usage, nutrition and stress that we know impact both of those goals and we've structured our wellness solutions to directly tie to those major drivers of health care costs and poor health.

We also know that each person is unique and needs multi-dimensional support to achieve his or her own best health, which is why we are also committed to a wellness strategy that supports employees in the ways that work best for them — whether it's at work, at home or on the go.

Our answer? Connecting members to better health

When employees get sick, we pair them with a team that manages their care. Anthem's coordinated care gives employees and their families access to quality care and personalized wellness programs and tools. This approach deters costly ER visits, urgent care, hospital stays and unneeded doctor's visits. It's a more personalized approach and one that places a new importance on the doctor-patient relationship.

We bring wellness to work, too

Better health is just better for business. That's our philosophy. At Anthem, we also bring innovative wellness solutions right to the workplace — because that's where employees spend most of their time. Our wellness programs, tools and resources focus on prevention and tackle health issues that keep your employees feeling their best.

You'll see the results

Our health and wellness solutions are proven to help lower costs. When employees get checkups and tests, and live healthier lifestyles, they're less likely to go to the ER or see expensive doctors.
