RBR has performed extensive research into the healthcare transparency/consumerism space. We believe there is tremendous opportunity for almost every self-insured large employer to improve health plan performance by providing consumer tools to assist plan members in locating high quality medical care at a fair cost.
There is a high disparity in pricing for medical services, even while staying “in network” in the same geographic region. The self-insured employer is also negatively impacted by a lack of transparency as they pay bills when the employee is in the co-pay phase, over the deductible, or has hit their out-of-pocket maximum.
We have partnered with the “best in class” solution in the marketplace to help solve this problem. Besides improving the financial performance in the plan, we believe offering improved consumer support tools helps the plan fulfill its fiduciary commitment to the health plan members. In this rapidly evolving industry, the RBR team recognizes the value these tools bring to our clients, many of which are unaware these solutions even exist.
