Overheard @: 'These people are the sickest of your population'

In a "Five Minutes With ..." podcast, Maria Henderson, founder of HDM solutions and chair-elect of the Certification of Disability Management Specialists Commission, spoke with EBN Managing Editor Leah Carlson Shepherd about the commission’s leadership awards for disability management and tips for employers in managing the benefit more effectively.

Henderson also reminds employers that employees on short-term disability, although just 10% of the active population, spend "over 50% of your health care for each year. These people are the sickest in your population. You need to be paying attention to them." Download the podcast here.
