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.

Find out how Kaiser’s approach can reduce costs for employers, increase medication adherence and decrease misuse and abuse – and why it’s a model that more healthcare systems and ACOs may be adopting in the future.

Can an integrated approach to healthcare and pharmacy management make sense for your employees?

OPEN TO NEBGH EMPLOYER MEMBERS

Find out HOW….

  • The pharmacy program works in an integrated model and how it differs from traditional PBM approaches
  • Employers and other stakeholders benefit
  • The model helps identify and prevent drug misuse and addiction (e.g., opioids)
  • Specialty drugs are managed

Kaiser’s Speakers

  • Willie Rainey, MD – National Accounts Physician Market Leader
  • Ambrose Carrejo, PharmD – National Pharmaceutical Contracting Leader
  • Dean Fredriks, PharmD – Director, Drug Use Management
