United Benefit Advisors Webinar: Private Lessons from The Public Sector, Strategies for Controlling Health Care Cost
Date:3/22/2013

highly recommended.
  • Which strategies are being underutilized and why.
  • The amount of savings possible by implementing some of these strategies.
  • Case study examples.
  • The webinar is designed to help both public and private sector employers benchmark the strategies they are currently using to manage employee benefits cost, validate their direction, and give new ideas on practices and techniques to help control the ever-increasing costs of employee benefits.

    One example of the realized health care cost savings achieved from these strategies included in the GFOA study comes from a local government in Indiana that saves $90 on each full-panel blood draw they conduct through an on-site clinic, rather than using a private provider. Other potential benefits include less absenteeism from employees being sick or attending appointments and fewer hospital visits, all of which can lead to lower costs. Research on on-site clinics finds they can provide a substantial return on investment, with figures ranging from $1.60 to $4 saved for every dollar invested.

    “A change in benefits strategy can be an emotionally controversial topic,” says Mangan. “This webinar also provides effective employee communication techniques that help support health plan transitions.”
