Advanced Strategies to Combat Rising Health Plan Costs
This session will include information about cost drivers affecting employers’ health plan costs and solutions employers can implement to control or reduce them. We will discuss opportunities to increase transparency in your plan costs, drive better utilization from your membership, ensure your plan is not overpaying for services/coverage, and examine some more progressive approaches.
