Aon Uganda has initiated an Employee Wellness Management Program to help companies reduce medical costs while keeping employees healthy and more productive.
It will help contain out-of-pocket expenses, save employers medical costs and make medical insurance more profitable by treating conditions before they become critical.
Launching the programme in Kampala recently, Aon Uganda Chief Executive Officer Maurice Amogola said it was tailored to give employees better control of their health and broader access to comprehensive and preventive care.
Amogola said making medical insurance profitable would spur growth in the insurance sector, which currently contributes 0.6% to GDP.
AON’s programme focuses on health education and behavior change, using a health risk assessment modeling tool that compares medical/treatment claims and key risk factors to design prevention and early treatment measures.
At-risk workers receive regular outreach calls and clinical visits for periodic laboratory reviews.
