75 Million Missed Work Days Expected This Flu Season
Date:10/28/2008

Californians are Provided With Resources to Prevent Millions in Lost Wages

SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 97 million(1) cases of the flu are reported annually, financially challenging working families by the loss of wages caused by missed work days. QuickHealth meets the challenge by providing updated information and guidance to patients and their families -- in language -- to clarify treatment options and to help them make better healthcare decisions.

"The wealth of information available during the flu season can be daunting and confusing to someone affected by flu," stated QuickHealth Chief Medical Officer Paul Gorman. "The flu is not only a physical illness. The financial ramifications affect working families throughout California. This is where QuickHealth can play a vital role in helping patients avoid the flu or by properly treating a flu diagnosis."

Government health statistics report show that 15 million to 60 million Americans are affected by the flu each year, with as many as 70 million missed workdays. With median weekly earnings of $675, un-paid sick leave costs an employee $135 per day.

To help patients and their family be better prepared to manage the flu, QuickHealth has created a simple patient and family support guide:

1. Be an active participant in your healthcare. Speak to your doctor or a QuickHealth doctor about revised guidelines around who should receive the flu shot. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone should be vaccinated, especially children 6 months and up, pregnant women, people who live with and care for those at high risk for complications from the flu and people with certain types of chronic conditions, including diabetes.

2. Get this year's flu vaccine. The flu is a highly contagious respiratory illness with potentially serious complications. The flu vaccine changes every year so last year's flu shot does not protect you agains
