CalsonicKansei North America, Inc.’s New Health Management Initiative Reduces Healthcare Costs 9.9% In First Year
Date:5/29/2013

Shelbyville, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

Nissan’s largest supplier in the U.S., CalsonicKansei North America, Inc. announced today the implementation of an employee health management program resulted in a 9.9% reduction from expected 2011-2012 healthcare spend, and a 17% decrease from Mercer projections .

The 9.9% savings transpired despite increased investment in primary care services including a company-wide extensive health screening known as a Health and Behavior Assessment (HBA). More than 90% of employees and spouses voluntarily engaged in the program which produced staggering results.

The HBAs identified more than 700 at-risk participants including 146 diabetic patients, 212 pre-diabetics and, 321 high blood pressure patients. Many of these diagnoses were previously unknown and may have likely resulted in a hospitalization. Thanks to early detection CalsonicKansei expects the cost avoidance from the HBAs to even further reduce its health care spend over the next two years, while employees become healthier and receive coaching from high performing physicians.

“The strategy of the CalsonicKansei benefit plan is to have a top tier benefit plan for their team members. This strategy has enhanced our ability to recruit and retain high quality team members,” stated Robert Masteller, Vice-President, Human Resources and Legal, CalsonicKansei North America, Inc. CalsonicKansei has been successful in holding the cost of their health plan level for the previous six years through a combination of benefit plan design changes, cost sharing to employees, and implementing on-site clinics with in-house pharmacy. This is the first significant reduction in benefit cost, which occurred while reducing the out-of-pocket expenses of their employees.

CalsonicKansei credits Employer Advantage Health Care Solutions (EAHCS) for their improved health at reduced costs to both the company and its employees. EAHCS'
