Employee CVD Prevention Benefit

CVD stands for cardiovascular disease which refers to heart attack and stroke. Your employer already provides heart attack and stroke prevention benefits. There are many reasons to take advantage of it.

If you have two or more risk factors, you may contribute to the above statistics within the next 5 to 10 years when you did not have to. 

Cardiovascular disease is one of the reasons why the cost of healthcare is rising, including your out-of-pocket expenses.

After over two decades of decline, death from heart disease is on the rise since 2014 even when heart attack is largely preventable and the need for cardiac hospitalizations, stents and heart bypass surgeries is largely avoidable.

We started turning off the faucet in 2001. Cardiovascular events that used to be common and expected became rare and unexpected. We published our performance data in 2006 and 2017. No one else does or has.

We stop heart attack before it happens by detecting plaques earlier and using optimal medical therapy to stop plaque progression and even induce plaque regression. This is reversing atherosclerosis.

The same medical treatment that prevents heart attack also prevents stroke - a dual benefit.

Ask your healthcare provider if you are at high risk and if your medical treatment is optimal to stop plaque progression and induce plaque regression.
