A medical procedure’s cost in any marketplace can range widely, often leading to consumers unknowingly making expensive choices. Using data to identify the prevalent conditions and cost drivers can lead to high-value providers who can deliver high-quality care at vastly reduced costs. This presentation will focus on how to disrupt health care through a combination of self-funding, direct contracts, bundled pricing, medical tourism, telemedicine, Medicare-based pricing, care navigators and onsite clinics to offer a health plan that’s attractive and sustainable. Learn how a school district went from fully insured to reducing its costs by 37% in just one year.
• The root problems with our current health care delivery system
• Strategies to disrupt health care to better serve employers and members
• How to engage members to make them better, happier consumers.
