A rapid increase in chronic conditions fuelled by lifestyle choices has resulted in an increased focus on preventative strategies to counteract their negative effects. NHP has identified preventative care as a key focus area going into the future and has incorporated a preventative care benefit into the benefit design without influencing your day-to-day benefits or impacting on your Roll-Over Benefit. The intention is to shift the focus from curative, to primary and preventative care. The NHP Wellness Programme forms part of a greater effort to support the focus on preventative treatment.
Becoming aware of your health risks can lead to specific goals and planning to reduce the risks of certain diseases and sicknesses, enhance health, improve productivity in the organisation, increase job satisfaction and reduce absenteeism.
