Do you know the cost difference between an MRI and an X Ray? Do you know the true cost of a brand name medication versus a generic? It takes an educated plan member to get the most out of their benefits plan, but most employees are simply too busy to fully understand their benefits. Keeping in mind the limited attention span of most members, we design custom communication campaigns to help raise awareness and plan efficiency, including quarterly communication campaigns that utilize various media that build off of the traditional materials for open enrollment, member surveys, posters, and wallet cards. The end result is a better-informed employee who values their benefits more highly and utilizes their plan more wisely.
POPULATION HEALTH MANAGEMENT
Can an employer really make employees lead healthier lives? The answer is maybe. Wellness programs aimed at managing the health risks of your employees can be an effective way to reduce long-term benefit costs, but only when those programs are designed and implemented correctly. At Brown, we have the experience necessary to collect and analyze data and to design targeted programs aimed at reducing health risks.
