Direct-with-Employer Contracting: Build Natural Steerage!


How do you remain ahead of the healthcare curve? Think employer-sponsored health plans and wellness programs, disease management, workers compensation case management and major medical collaboration. This session reviews these forward-thinking options for hospital, physician and employer collaboration. In addition, the instructor will address how new Consumer Driven Health products, such as employer funded Healthcare Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), fit into this opportunity for building natural channeling and steerage through loyalty and branding with the hospital and its medical staff.

A 20-page sample direct contract that is currently in use with many large employer groups nationwide is provided.
