Disability Diagnostics: Heart Disease


Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US, causing about one in four deaths. The impact of heart disease is significant, not only in terms of morbidity but also in terms of financial strain on individuals, businesses, and the overall economy. This snapshot provided by IBI's Disability Diagnosis Analyzer estimates the business costs and lost work time from employees entering into the US disability system due to heart disease.

Note: It is important to note that these numbers undercount the number of people who have heart disease requiring time away from work because only about 2 in 5 U.S. employees have access to disability leave benefits.
