Reference-Based Pricing

The featured guest on this week's program isDr. Christopher Whaley, an adjunct professor of health policy at UC Berkley and RAND Corporaton researcher, who also works with Castlight Health on research studies. In today's interview, Dr. Whaley will discuss how reference-based pricing helps employers and patients lower costs of care. Reference-based pricing is a type of benefit design that enables an employer to establish the maximum amount it will cover for a specific service. This maximum amount is the reference price. If their employee should choose to receive care for that service at a location that charges more than the reference price, the employee will be responsible for paying the amount above the reference price.

Introducing 121 Benefits & Powering Consumer-Driven Health Care with APIs

The first guest today will be Linda Heuer, founder of 121 Benefits. Earlier this year, Linda purchased Eide Bailly Employee Benefits Services from the well-known CPA firm and introduced a new TPA to the Midwest. The company is called 121 Benefits. Heuer, a former Eide Bailly principal, had noticed that the benefits industry was becoming increasingly self-service, which runs counter to the increasing complexity that employers and individuals face when dealing with health benefits. As a result, her focus with 121 Benefits is to provide a more responsive, personal, face-to-face service experience and a high level of benefits expertise. Using her team’s first-hand knowledge of employer preferences for one-to-one service and their proven compliance leadership, the 121 Benefits team offers a fresh approach for private and public employers.The second guest on this week's show will be Bill Haber, senior director, business development for PokitDok, an API platform built to power the busines...

Exploring Employee Well-being and Its Impact in the Workplace

The first guest on this week's program will be Jessica Grossmeier, vice president of research, HERO. The concept that good health is good business has been validated over the years by research linking health risk factors to higher employee health care costs, reduced on-the-job productivity and higher absenteeism. More recently, research has expanded its focus to overall well-being, with some studies showing a correlation between low employee well-being, higher turnover, lower employee engagement and lower employee performance. Now, the latest emerging body of research, including a new study from HERO, demonstrates that improved stock performance may be yet another reason to invest in a healthy workforce. In this interview, Jessica will share the findings and discuss the applications of this new research.For the second segment, we'll continue the wellness theme as we welcome Jeff Brizzolara, PhD, MPH, chief clinical officer, Viverae, to the show. Analyzing the true impact of a corpor...

Exploring Employee Well-being and Its Impact in the Workplace

Wellness Program Engagement & Better Health Through Insight

The first guest is Sean McManamy, SVP, strategy and product, HealthFitness, who discusses elusive drivers of wellness program participation. Sean will share new research that shows that to drive participation in wellness programs employers must address both the emotional and functional needs of employees and include personalized, customized communications. The research survey – conducted by HealthFitness in 2015 and 2016 – shows that wellness program participants have greater satisfaction with programs offered, perceived themselves as healthier and have a more positive attitude toward their employer. Yet, despite the myriad of available tools, tech and programs that are attractive to employees, a significant number – nearly 60 percent – remain outside of the program.: They are those who indicate they are likely to start participating, but for some reason do not. Fortunately, research findings point to ways employers can maximize the significant potential of their wellness progra...
