Modern Healthcare

Since the passage of the 2010 healthcare reform law, worksite health and medical clinics have seen modest but steady increases in popularity among large U.S. employers, according to a new study published Tuesday by Mercer.

New York-based Mercer’s most recent National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans, released in November 2012 indicated 37% of firms with 5,000 or more employees reported they offer occupational and/or primary care services through an on-site clinic, compared with 32% in 2010.

Another 15% indicated they are considering installing a clinic within the next two years.
