Healthcare costs are rising continuously faster than any other sector in the U.S. and businesses are facing the brunt of that increase due to lack of transparency and control in their health plan. Join us as we discuss alternative methods of health insurance management and find out how businesses are saving significant amounts off the bottom line of their healthcare spend without decreasing benefits.

Presentation overview

– Reasons costs are rising in healthcare:

    • Medical cost trends
    • Carrier vs. TPA claim auditing
    • Understanding your data

– Pharmacy Options:

    • Cost drivers in pharmacy
    • What are rebates and who gets them?

– Consortium Solutions and Options:

    • Most businesses would benefit from self-insurance but they feel they are too small. The consortium model helps businesses with as few as 25 employees take advantage of cost savings solutions.

Target Audience: Any CEO, CFO, HR Executive or Manager with 25-1000 employees on benefits that would like to lower health costs without major disruption to their plan.
