Case Study: City of Lakeland (Lakeland County, FL)
The City of Lakeland is the largest city between Tampa and Orlando with a population of 95,000. In 2008, city officials determined that an On-Site Health Management Program administered by Healthstat was the best option for improving employee health to the degree that it would temper rising costs. After one year, an internal audit revealed that the city saved $1.1 million in claims costs on employees who participated in the program while experiencing a 27 percent increase in claims from non-participants. Since the program's inception, the Return on Investment (ROI) for the City has been 4.23:1 and the rate of growth in Per Employee Per Year (PEPY) healthcare spending has slowed from 10 percent to 6.9 percent.
