Chasing Dollars Not Discounts: Not All Networks are Created Equal

Approximately 80% of Wisconsin families find medical billing confusing and 39% of Americans say they could not afford to pay a surprise $400 bill. This leaves 56% of users saying they were hesitant about seeking additional medical care because of their experience with medical bills.

HPS knows healthcare is broken and can’t be fixed by one company, but their goal is to reduce the cost of healthcare administration while maintaining the highest level of provider and patient satisfaction in the industry. They do this through a better healthcare payment and reimbursement system. That’s why they serve so many stakeholders: employers, individuals, brokers, TPAs, and providers. Their solutions offer unique benefits to each, in the hope that together we can make healthcare less confusing and more cost-effective for all.

Health Risk Management is the Key

Healthcare has become increasingly more complex, more expensive, and more institutional. Traditional medicine is no longer sufficient to take care of a population’s needs, and healthcare had to expand its spectrum of services. Predisease preventive care and follow up maintenance require proficient analytics and well trained, certified health professionals outside direct medical providers.

In the last ten to fifteen years, the healthcare industry has been struggling with the patient flow of care trying to implement wellness and disease maintenance without the desired outcome. This was partly due to inadequate analytical and management tools, and partly to low participation. US HealthCenter is one of the few vendors that provide services in predisease, disease, and postdisease periods, and focuses on participation and adhesion to the health management programs resulting in great savings for their customers.

This method has reduced medical costs to self-funded plans by 20% to 40% most of the time.
