Save on High-Value Surgeries for Your Employees around the U.S.

[ ]  Do you manage benefits for at least 10,000 employees in the US?

[ ]  Is your workforce distributed in areas throughout the country?

[ ]  Do you want to provide high-quality outcomes while paying less for joint replacement, spine and bariatric surgeries?


If you answer “YES” to these questions, you need to consider participating in the Employers Center of Excellence Network (ECEN).

It’s a program recommended by 98% of the patients who have participated at companies like Walmart, Lowes and McKesson! 

ECEN has negotiated payment rates for high-quality surgical care for specific high-cost procedures at some of the top hospitals in the country.

Supporting Employees’ Financial Well-being

Financial instability takes a huge toll on employee health and well-being and in fact, individuals with financial problems are three times more likely to develop a mental illness.

With one-third of millennials in financial stress and 44% of adults not able to cover a $400 emergency expense, a growing number of employers are providing programs and services to help employees make wise choices about personal finance options.

  • What kinds of programs should employers consider, and do employers who offer them see increases in engagement and productivity?
  • How can employers help employees make the connection between physical and financial health?

How Employers Can Benefit from Integrated Pharmacy Management Models

Kaiser Permanente’s approach to pharmacy management in an integrated healthcare model differs from traditional PBM models — including purchasing drugs directly from pharmaceutical companies and influencing physicians’ prescribing patterns.
