According to Forrester research, when employers look at their health plan offerings to determine whether a consumer-directed solution is right for them, employee readiness and resistance are the top reasons why employers chose not to offer a CDHP. And less than half of all employees who are offered a CDHP by their employer actually enroll in the plan.
So how do you create a cost-effective CDHP that offers cost-savings to your employer groups, as well as your own bottom line, and simultaneously engages the consumer at the level necessary to make CDHP work?
The answer is a fully-integrated solution that provides a personalized consumer experience with a variety of education and service options and easy access to decision support tools and money management. This critical combination of services and technology allows the consumer to seamlessly navigate their health and wellness and creates an educated and informed consumer population. This is the goal with consumer-directed solutions.
Health plans need select partners who share this common vision for seamless customer service. Listen to Curt Palmer, Senior Vice President, Consumer Solutions, DST Health Solutions discuss the various implementation offerings that health plans today are putting into place to create this effective convergence.
• Describe some of the functionality that helps consumers engage in a consumer-directed offering.
• Look at the reasons why consumer engagement drives the cost savings for health plans and employers.
• Educate listeners on why it is the transparent combination of technology and services that create the benefits consumers are looking for.
• Illustrate why a single fully-integrated CDH solution is the optimal best practice for health plans.
• Product Managers
• CIOs
• CDH Managers for health plans
