As healthcare costs continue to rise, employers who self-fund their insurance will turn to direct contracting with healthcare providers, whether it is a Center of Excellence, narrow network, or a high performing network. The National Business Group on Health expects that approximately 60 percent of employers will have some form of direct contract by the end of 2018. To help employers understand the complexities of direct contracting, as well as the benefit to their employees and their bottom line, the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress will host the first annual Employer Direct Contracting & Bundled Payment Summit on Tuesday, October 3, as part of their annual event.
This unique educational will explore how leading employers are working directly with providers to manage their healthcare costs and better manage their employees’ health. Learn how top national employers like Lowes and Pepsi are lowering their healthcare costs while improving the care their employees receive.
“Employer direct contracting will be the future of self-funded insurance,” said Jonathan Edelheit, CEO of the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress. “It provides a unique solution to rising healthcare costs that all companies face. By negotiating directly with some of the best hospitals in the world like Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins, employers can save money and improve outcomes while still providing the highest quality care.”
Attendees to the Employer Direct Contracting & Bundled Payment Summit will:
- Learn how to create bundled packages and pricing
- Learn from successful employer case studies
- Network with top brokers and employers
- Network with the top hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers
