In Health Care Planning, One Size Does Not Fit All


A new Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) report highlights the wide disparity of health care costs in U.S. states, with average costs ranging from 17% above comparable populations in Colorado to 16% below in Maryland. The report notes that "there is no one-size-fits-all solution" for health care affordability... and at MedBen, it's a truism that extends well beyond geography.

Nearly 80 years of experience in benefits management has taught MedBen the importance of customizing a health plan to meet the needs of the client. Proper health plan design considers such factors as the particular industry, employee demographics and health care utilization. By treating a business as the unique enterprise that it is, we can create a health plan that addresses specific population health concerns while ensuring that the employer's financial investment is well-managed.

At our upcoming MedBen University roundtables, we'll explore how employer health plans address potential challenges inherent in their industry as well as capitalize on their possible advantages. In addition to industry-specific roundtables for hospitals and municipalities, we're offering a session for private sector employers that breaks down various plan cost factors and offers proven strategies to improve plan effectiveness. Invitations to these events are in the mail (or soon will be), so be sure to look for yours!

Finally, while every business is indeed different, for MedBen one thing always stays consistent -- the level of attention and respect we give to each one of our clients. Learn more about how we can serve your unique needs by contact Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at
