With the recent implementation of pricing transparency within hospital systems, it has become increasingly apparent that cost variance for services between insurance carrier contracts can vary greatly. With extreme quality and cost variances between facilities, employers are constantly looking for ways to ensure their employees receive high-value care while eliminating unnecessary medical spend. To ensure the delivery of quality care at reduced costs, healthcare stakeholders must collaborate and leverage high-tech, high-touch strategies to deliver cost savings, improved health outcomes, and a seamless member experience. This session will cover recent changes in policy and discuss possible solutions to mitigate cost.

What you will learn:

  • This session will provide useful information to employee benefits, HR and financial stakeholders about the status of price transparency policy, as well as knowledge about innovative solutions that can help guide benefits decision-making.
  • Examples of pricing variance between insurance carriers at various hospital systems vs. “fair” pricing available
  • How healthcare navigation and high-tech, high-touch support drives member engagement and substantial cost savings for both the organization and member
  • How the evolution of direct provider contracting  can drive savings to self-funded health plans.
