Headaches and Migraines are very debilitating for many Americans and they are a big challenge for employees and for employers.  

According to a recent study (Costs Associated With Migraine in the United States, by Bonafede M, Sapra S, Shah N, Tepper S, Cappell K, Desai P.), "Migraine is a common neurological disease. Globally, it is the third most common disease and the sixth most disabling disease. In the United States, approximately 1 in 7 adults and 1 in 5 of those in their peak employment years (aged 18 to 54 years) report severe headaches or migraine in the past 3 months."  The study also discovered that the direct and indirect costs associated with migraines is estimated at $36 Billion per year!   That means the average employee with migraines accounts for $8,924.00 higher than employees without migraines.
