Saved 44% on plan cost.

About the Client

300-life Employer fully-insured with Anthem.

Pain Points & Priorities

Employer was paying a rate of $820 PEPM. If the client had received trend increases of 8% annually, the anticipated next-year renewal over the next four years would have been $1,120 PEPM, which was much more than the Employer was expecting. The Employer was seeking a long-term strategic solution to better manage its healthcare plan costs and secure better care for its employees.
