Primary Care Emphasis Pays Dividends

doctor and patient

A new JAMA Internal Medicine study has something in common with the MedBen WellLiving program – both find that primary care serves a valuable purpose in promoting preventive care.

As reported by Healthcare Dive, study respondents with a primary care relationship were more likely to have had a wellness exam in the past year. Moreover, they received more high-value cancer screenings and preventive tests.

MedBen WellLiving's "family doctor first" emphasis puts the primary care provider in charge. Maintaining a physician-patient relationship enables the family doctor to perform wellness tests and monitor potential symptoms over an extended period, helping to prevent complications for unmanaged health conditions.

For employers, this approach has an additional benefit: It eliminates the logistical headaches and potential redundancy of on-site biometric screenings, saving them time and money.

But primary prevention is just one reason why MedBen WellLiving works for your business. Learn more by contacting Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at 888-627-8683 or bfargus@medben.com.
