    Speaker: Anne Morton, Curalic Healthcare

    Behavioral health is a significant hole that exists in almost every population health management strategy. According to the Dep’t of Health and Human Services, it's a gap that accounts for 7.3 percent ($135 billion) of the $1.85 trillion spent on all healthcare services in the U.S. each year – an amount roughly equivalent to the total spent on heart disease ($78 billion) and cancer care ($58 billion) combined. In addition to impacting the bottom line, mental health and substance abuse concerns also affect the health and well-being of employees. This data begs the question – if behavioral health is so important, why aren't more companies integrating benefits that address behavioral health services (such as an EAP) into their health management strategies?
