Best Medical Outcomes At A Lower Cost? MedBen Has The Solution

In order to hold down health care plan costs, employers are considering new approaches to promoting plan member use of providers with the best medical outcomes, Business Insurance reports.

According to an Aon Hewitt survey of about 800 large and midsize employers, 59% of respondents said they intend to direct members, through plan design or lower costs, to hospitals or physicians with demonstrated high quality for specific procedures or conditions. “Employers want to drive employees to providers with the best outcomes,” Jim Winkler, chief innovation officer for health in Aon Hewitt’s Norwalk, Connecticut, office.

Partners Community Health Plan is the perfect solution for employers who value high quality at lower costs. MedBen has partnered with community hospitals throughout Ohio and Kentucky to provide a level of care comparable to that found in major metropolitan areas, often at a fraction of the price.

In addition to the most comprehensive provider network available, Partners offers a worksite wellness program and the best pharmacy plan discounts you can find. Members also have access to a community wellness network that offers discounts from neighboring businesses on a variety of products and services. In short, it’s better care at a better cost.

Partners Community Health Plan is available to both fully- and self-insured groups. To learn more, e-mail MedBen Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at bfargus@medben.com or contact a participating Partners agent.
