    Ostheoarthritis
    Management

    According to the CDC, 54 million adults in the US have arthritis, the leading cause of work disability. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis (OA), a chronic condition affecting the joints which often results in a lower quality of life due to issues with decreased mobility. Considering 60% of adults with OA are between the working ages of 18 and 64, the cost to individuals and their employers can be significant.

    Migraine Management

    Migraine affects one in eight American adults. Prevalence peaks during prime productive years, between the ages of 25 and 55, at a time when work and family responsibilities are most significant. Although the prevalence of migraine far surpasses that of diabetes, it rarely makes the list of chronic conditions that get an employer’s attention because migraines, on the surface, appear inexpensive to treat…but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

    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 nine 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.

    Diabetes and Cardiovascular
    Disease

    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.

    Addressing Pain Management
    & Opioid Use/Abuse

    Most employers are unaware of the direct and indirect costs associated with pain management and opioid abuse; however, the financial impact is significant. Pain related conditions affect 116 million adults in the U.S. and result in $560 - $635 billion in medical costs and lost productivity for employers. The overuse of opioids to address pain costs employers nearly twice as much in medical expenses annually compared to non-abusers.

    Eye Care Benefits

    Most employers are unaware of the direct and indirect costs related to the eye health of their employee population. Considering the economic burden of eye disorders and vision loss ($139 billion) and one of four emergency room visits for eye problems aren’t actual emergencies, vision care should be a priority for employers. There are simple steps employers can take improve vision health while having a positive financial impact on the bottom line.

To make informed decisions, it's important to first understand the landscape, players, marketplace challenges and the role that specialty drugs will play now and in the future.
