Are you and your employee benefits strategy ready for the healthcare ecosystem of the future?   

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is upending traditional models of care and motivating stakeholders to create innovative new solutions.  A healthcare system ordinarily rife with complex and slow-moving organizations and regulations is undergoing rapid change as a result of AI-powered sensors, robotics, wearable devices, smartphones and process enhancements of all kinds.

We’ll tackle these questions and more at our 9th Annual Health & Wellness Benefits Conference!

Increase Employee Access to High-Value Drugs & Services – V-BID X for Employers

You can help improve your employees’ health and better manage healthcare expenditures by reducing or eliminating cost-sharing for drugs and services known to help control (or prevent) chronic conditions that can lead to serious complications.  How can you afford this?  By reducing access to wasteful and low-value care. 

V-BID X gives you a template for applying targeted cost-sharing based on the clinical value – not price – of drugs and services. You and your employees will benefit with improved access to high-value care, reduced cost-related non-adherence to important medications and decreased exposure to harmful care. And you’ll experience improved efficiency of your medical expenditures.

The New Sandwich Generation

Today, your Gen X and Millennial employees increasingly find themselves shouldering expenses for small children and/or adult children — including college education and costs of those returning home to live — while also caring for aging or ill parents.  And for middle-aged adults, this is all happening as they plan for retirement.  “Sandwichers” lack the time and energy to fulfill these responsibilities successfully, and their physical and mental health frequently suffers.

Supporting Children’s Mental Health

Nearly 20% of children have a mental health or developmental disability and chances are their parents are your employees. Despite your best efforts, parents may not be able to find or afford a mental health specialist for their kids. Left untreated or undertreated, children suffer the effects of these conditions and parents are stressed, leading to absenteeism and reduced productivity.

Eating Disorders: Hiding in Plain Sight

An eating disorder is a serious mental illness. In fact, anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder.

But despite serious consequences for health, productivity and relationships, it’s estimated that only one in ten people with an eating disorder gets treated. In many cases, their appearance or illness is not obvious.

So what do employers need to know about eating disorders and the treatments available for employees, children and family members who may be suffering in silence?
