Execs at Cleveland-based KeyBank figure there’s something to be said for keeping the same medical administrator on staff for more than a decade. In fact, they call it part of their “commitment to wellness.”
The organization’s aim: to drive down medical costs by helping employees improve their health and become more involved in their own well-being.
Aside from the long-term medical administrator, KeyBank keeps its health plan designs simple by offering two high-deductible health plan options and one PPO. It offers employees a health insurance premium credit for participating in wellness programs, and pushes healthier eating and more exercise.
The company also offers on-site immunizations and uses an aggressive absenceapproach.
To reach into the community with its efforts to encourage better health, the bank’s foundation awarded $1 million to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to develop a Community Health Advisors (CHA) training program. CHA administers breast health education and screenings to 110,000 medically underserved women in 17 cities across the nation where KeyBank has a presence.
