Positive Impact for Clients and Workforce
Through a partnership beginning in 2015, local 440 and its 2,300 members—in addition to another 1,700 dependents—have saved over $11M in healthcare costs, including $1M in out-of-pocket expenses. With no copays and no outof-pocket expenses for visiting their local health center, these families avoid the stress and decision-making that comes with finding affordable, necessary healthcare that’s close to home.
In addition to financial savings, members have seen substantial improvements to health. Over the life of the partnership with Activate by Everside Health, 68% of members and dependents with hypertension have successfully lowered their blood pressure. Numerous diabetes and pre-diabetes diagnoses have been made possible thanks to annual physicals, as well as a patient who received a timely diagnosis of prostate cancer and has since received successful treatment.
