Paid-sick-days concept as a preventive option for Federal healthcare expenditure

January 09, 2012



Coming at a time when Federal Government itself is promulgating radical healthcare reforms to tackle growing medical expenditure on public healthcare, and promote efficient and quality medical care to its ever growing insured population, this paid-sick-days concept promises to complement the macro healthcare reforms formulated by the Federal Health Department.”

Strange it might seem, yet there seems to be substance in the thinking that offering employees with paid-sick-days option will eventually bring down Federal healthcare spending on emergency medical services. The logic sources its root to a forthcoming report by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR), which estimates that giving employees access to paid sick days would reduce visits to hospital emergency departments (ED) and save $1 billion in medical costs annually; currently public insurance programs support approximately half this bill.

Although the projected saving is roughly around 2% of the total spend of approximately $47 billion annually on emergency department services, there is growing consensus among the policy makers the paid-sick-days option would encourage a proactive and preventive healthcare conscience amongst the employees and their dependents, who otherwise would procrastinate medical visits for seemingly trivial cases that potentially would be more serious. Thus, by encouraging a proactive and preventive healthcare conscience, Federal Healthcare Body can look forward to ensuring a healthy population as well as substantial cumulative savings on public insurance programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, and Veteran Affairs Services.

Coming at a time when Federal Government itself is promulgating radical healthcare reforms to tackle growing medical expenditure on public healthcare, and promote efficient and quality medical care to its ever growing insured population, this paid-sick-days concept promises to complement the macro healthcare reforms formulated by the Federal Health Department.

Quite presumably, there would be an additional burden on physicians committed to serve Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, and Veteran Affairs Services beneficiaries, who would show propensity to regular medical visits, encouraged by the paid-sick-days concept. Although physicians can count on pay-for-service fees, the potential growing volume would surely put their practices under tight schedule that would render them vulnerable to operational and administrative in-efficiencies. As their practices’ fortunes hinges solely hinges on efficient clinical management and operational management practices, a dedicated clinical management and operational management service becomes crucial. With in-house services failing to match up to the requisite bench-mark, outsourcing seems to be a viable option.
