WHY should You consider Community Care Missouri?

The cost of health care has increased 168 percent since 1999 – four times faster than inflation.  CCM addresses the root causes of these soaring costs: poor lifestyle choices, lack of patient compliance, lack of integration between the healthcare plan and providers.

  • Reduced Costs: With CCM, you pay only for your employees’ care and reasonable administrative costs. Your costs decrease as the health of your workforce improves.
  • Health Management: CCM provides employees the tools to prevent and manage chronic conditions caused by poor lifestyle choices, which currently account for 75 percent of health spending.
  • Primary Care Access: Over 40 percent of employees do not receive routine primary care, which means 1) they are accessing care through emergency rooms or 2) they are receiving inadequate care for chronic and episodic conditions. CCM sponsored clinics provide local access to primary care that promotes medicine for long-term health.
