STL HealthSince 2002, STL Health has served the St. Louis community as a resource for local health and wellness providers in the greater metro area. This site would not be possible if it weren't for our sponsors. Please support the local St. Louis health care providers that support us. If you or are someone else is experiencing a medical emergency, please dial 911. We believe that a healthy community makes for a happier and stronger community. Choosing the right STL health and wellness professional is important whether you're looking for personal or business reasons.

Depending on the program and the provider, health/wellness services can be delivered through a number of different venues. Many health providers offer internet and phone screening to cut costs for you, while others offer on-site screening. Any of these options is likely to be good, although you should research your needs to decide which delivery method is right for you, and which you prefer. From there, it's a simple matter of finding a provider that offers the right delivery. For example, your employees may be perfectly fine with taking a mental health exam online, but may prefer an on-site unit for vaccinations.  

You have to select a company that offers the services and programs that you need in order to offer your employees or yourself the best.

St Louis health providerCheck for Certification or Licensing: The first and most important tip that you can consider is that St. Louis health provider should be certified or licensed according to state and board standards. Your health provider has to comply with PPCA, HITECH, HIPAA, and a number of other regulations in order to be legal, and if they don't, your company could be facing legal issues. In addition, the company should most likely have a state certification, as well as accreditation from either the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, or the National Committee for Quality Insurance. 

Ask About Services: While it may seem obvious that you want to know about services, you actually want to know about more than what services they provide. Consider asking about program flexibility, service customization, and of course, rates. Most of the time you can find basic information on a website or in a brochure, but make sure you ask to get the more in depth details you need to make your decision.  

Do Your Research: It's always important to research any STL health and wellness company to ensure that they offer the quality that you need. A very basic way to check up on the provider is to simply do a web search for their business name and check out what other people are saying about the company. If you see a lot of negativity or complains, then you know not to hire them. Of course, you can't entirely rely on internet reviews, so make sure you also see how long they've been in business, and if at all possible, talk to one of their other clients.  

Check Service Delivery Options: Depending on the program and the provider, health/wellness services can be delivered through a number of different venues. Many providers offer internet and phone screening to cut costs for you, while others offer on-site screening. Any of these options is likely to be good, although you should research your needs to decide which delivery method is right for you, and which you prefer. From there, it's a simple matter of finding a provider that offers the right delivery. For example, your employees may be perfectly fine with taking a mental health exam online, but may prefer an on-site unit for vaccinations.  
Compare: Finally, the best way to get the right STL wellness provider is actually as simple as comparing your options. Check to see how many options you have and then spend a decent amount of time researching each one. If you want an easy way to compare, try writing up a pros and cons list for each one, or create a chart with specific features, rates, and services, so that you can quickly compare to see which is right for you.
