CASE STUDIES

In our first year we delivered immediate and tangible results for a large automotive supplier with a well-managed benefits plan.

The company had implemented the following major strategies for reducing healthcare cost:

  • Consumer Driven Health Plans
  • Annual Cost shifting premiums to employees
  • On-site Clinics with Pharmacy
  • Wide array of Wellness Programs

Human Resources felt they had exhausted all traditional options for reducing healthcare spending and was looking for new and innovative solutions for lowering their costs while improving the health of their employee population.

Employer Advantage reviewed the client’s existing benefits infrastructure working with their consultant/broker and implemented several solutions which created results within 15 months. The customized solution consisted of:

  • Restructuring and Accountability in On-Site Clinics
  • Recruitment and Accountability of Local Primary Care
  • Implementation of Employer Advantage’s Annual Lifestyle and Biometric Screening
  • Targeted Wellness Programming
