Guide to preventive services offers insight for providers
Providers and payers with any doubts about whether employers plan to exert more influence over the health of their covered members should examine a 500-page compendium developed by the National Business Group on Health in Washington, DC, created to serve as a template for employee benefits coverage of preventive services. A Purchaser's Guide to Clinical Preventive Services: Moving Science into Coverage addresses 46 clinical preventive services (e.g., aspirin therapy to prevent heart disease and screening for depression) and the scientific evidence that supports their use. The National Business Group is heavily promoting the document this year to employers, healthcare consultants, and health plans in preparation for employee healthcare enrollment for the 2008 plan year.
