Your Small Business Can’t Afford Employee Health Insurance. Have You Looked At This Option?

Health benefits top the list in employee must-haves, but it is the most expensive benefit to provide. Only 47% of firms with 3 to 9 workers offer coverage. Businesses who can afford to provide health insurance are faced with passing this year’s hikes to their employees. The average annual premiums for employer-sponsored health insurance in 2018 are $6,896 for single coverage and $19,616 for family coverage. (Kaiser Family Foundation)

Colorado Flu Season Breaks Record

Flu shots are available at your local PeakMed LifeCenter and you might consider getting one. Last year’s 2017-2018 flu season broke records in Colorado with over 4-thousand people hospitalized. (CDPHE) Coloradan’s ages 6-months and older are encouraged to get a flu shot, especially the elderly and those with weak immune systems. The vaccine takes about two weeks to take effect so October and November is a great time to get it.

Treating the Whole Person: How Overlooking Mental Health Can Lead to Physical Issues

Imagine being faced with constant worry and anxiety. Throughout your life, you’ve fret over what other people may feel are “the littlest things,” but these worries eventually fester, and you’re plagued with ongoing stomach aches, migraines or insomnia. As you grow older, activities like taking tests at school and even watching movies exacerbate your stress levels and one day, you’re shaking and struggling to breathe, seemingly out of nowhere. Scary, right?

Telemedicine: Just What the Doctor Ordered

Wouldn’t it be nice to have instant access to your doctor right from your pocket? Well, luckily, advances in communications technology have opened the door for telemedicine to remotely connect patients with their provider. At PeakMed, we’ve partnered with CirrusMD, a health-tech company which offers a text-first approach to telemedicine, to provide our members access to their health care providers when they need it. We call it PeakMed:OnCall.

We Wish You a Healthy Holidays — and a Healthy New Year

Mobile LifeCenter Debuts Service at Denver Area Company

We have all had to leave work to go to a doctor’s appointment. Between driving to and from the appointment, waiting for the doctor and getting your exam, you can be gone for hours. Those hours mean lost productivity for your employer and falling behind on work. PeakMed is helping resolve that pain point by removing the boundaries to accessing great health care and bringing our services straight to the employee.

PeakMed LifeCenters Now Offering Vaccinations

While a shot might not be the most comfortable experience, the diseases they can prevent are much less pleasant. Some of the diseases that vaccinations prevent can be life-threatening. In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), immunization currently prevents between 2 million and 3 million deaths every year. Consequently, immunization shots, or vaccinations, are essential. At PeakMed, we are all about disease prevention and staying healthy to live your best life.
