THE FACTS

THE ONLY REAL CURE FOR THE HEALTH CARE CRISIS IS PREVENTION.
According to the comprehensive California study on Economic Costs of Physical Inactivity, Obesity and Overweight (2005), the incremental cost to the employer of a physically inactive worker is $2,400/year; and $3,270 for an obese worker.

Risk Factor Population Incremental Incidence Cost/Employee/Year*
Inactive 50% $2,400
Obese** 17.5% $3,270
Overweight 35% $51
*Cost: Medical 50% / Productivity 50%
**Number of obese is growing at 4.5% per Year

Physical inactivity results in the loss of 162 productive hours (approximately 20 days) per worker for an average statewide cost of $8.6 billion annually.
  1. A recent study of 1.5 million adult health plan members found that total annual health plan expenditures attributable to physical inactivity were $83.6 million.
  2. Indirect costs of poor health such as absenteeism, presenteeism, and disability may be 2 to 3 times higher than direct medical costs.
  3. Employees with weight problems incur 36% higher annual health care costs for primary care visits and 105% higher pharmacy costs for managing chronic conditions caused by their weight (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes).
