    Controlling Healthcare Costs The Easy Way


    Site of care has been in the news a lot lately, meaning where do you go to get (appropriate) care. There is significant differences, for example surgeries, in the costs and quality. The challenge is members don't want to be the medical expert and negotiate with their provider on where they should receive services. A proactive care management program can manage the doctor's prior authorization without the member needing to be involved and reduce claims costs by 400%.

    Member outreach is also great solution, but this happens after the prior authorization occurs and requires the member to respond, essentially being the expert. We will present the rate of success of member outreach and top notch care management programs, plus what you need to do within a plan document to break the cost curves.

      Learning Objectives:

      Participants will be able to:

      • Understand what is site of care and how care management impacts this during the prior authorization 

      • How to build a plan including improved site of care programs 

      • Statistical difference between member outreach programs and care management
