Women make up nearly 60% of the workforce, yet they’re often not getting what they need out of their health benefits, a new survey shows.

The top issues affecting their health were fatigue, headaches/migraines, general malaise, infection, mental health, physical pain and stomach issues.

The survey, published Tuesday, was from Parsley Health, a virtual primary care company that serves employers. It included responses from 1,271 women ages 18 to 60. All of the women were employed full-time and had health insurance.

  • 🩺49% of employed women said they want “comprehensive support” from one doctor
  • 🩺40% of women want access to a doctor who diagnoses the “root cause” of their condition
  • 🩺39% want better care management services
  • 🩺71% of working women said they would leave their jobs for better benefits
  • 🩺47% of women said their health issues have impacted their productivity at work in the last 60 days
  • 🩺43% have missed one or more days of work because of health issues in the last 60 days
  • 🩺80% of women said they delayed care until their symptoms worsened
  • 🩺67% of women reported they are struggling to get a clear diagnosis
  • 🩺33% women said they’re confident in their diagnosis

⚕️Symptoms and comorbidities for this population are often interrelated and point to bigger, chronic health issues, but more investigation would be needed to properly identify these problems.
