Direct-to-Employer Contracting Nothing New for MedBen

A recent Bloomberg.com article opined upon the growing trend of employers contracting directly with health care providers. Such relationships, author Max Nisen notes, save employers money by giving them "a greater degree of control and flexibility in how they manage health-care costs."

But at MedBen, such relationships are hardly a new phenomenon... in fact, we have been facilitating direct-to-employer contracting for nearly a decade. Our various direct-to-employer strategies have brought together area businesses and hospitals, in designs that promotes the use of quality local care at a lower cost.

Most recently, MedBen has contracted with multiple health systems to accept reference-based pricing (RBP) plans. By using these providers, employers and plan members pay for medical services based on the true cost of care. And providers receive a fair and fast payment, so everyone benefits.

Direct-to-employer contracting is just one of the ways that MedBen can help clients save money on their health care. To learn more about it and other benefits management solutions, contact Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at bfargus@medben.com.
