A Better Way to Manage Your Health Care Costs
Your budget is important to your business. And as health care costs continue to rise, maintaining a competitive benefits package while keeping costs in check is becoming more challenging than ever.
A fresh look at health care
At the core, what do you think a health care partner should deliver? With our coordinated, team-based model, we’re able to provide the right care at the right time, which helps reduce unnecessary treatments and improves patient engagement. This leads to lower costs, as well as better population health outcomes. This approach is a key reason why we’re able to bring high-quality, affordable care to our 10 million members across the country.
How team-based care gives you more
- Doctors are able to focus on medicine instead of running a practice, which streamlines care and reduces medical errors and waste.
- Doctors order only the tests your employees need, reducing duplication and overall costs.
- Caregivers can pull up your employee’s entire medical history — including lab test results. Tests aren’t repeated unless they need to be, reducing duplication and overall costs.
Your employees get timely preventive care with vaccinations and health screenings to help avoid or minimize costly chronic conditions and treatments

Managing costs outside of the medical office
While many members still see their doctors in an office setting, more than half of our members choose to access next-generation care that’s convenient and cost-efficient.3 Whether emailing their doctor’s office through their online health record or visiting a retail clinic, members can use sophisticated telehealth options to stay at their best.
