Today employer health plans, are focusing on self-funded, fully insured, level-funded, and all of the above options. But if you can look at different cash-pay opportunities, prepaid opportunities, having telehealth there, where people aren't just immediately going to urgent care and emergency rooms, you will come out ahead as a company people want to work for and your staff will be better served. Our guests from Medxoom are putting everything in the hand of the member. Leigh and Sally’s guests are Matt Smith and Jeff Toewe from Medxoom. They tell us why cookie-cutter groups aren’t a fit for them because they don’t create enough value for their client base. They want to understand what you're trying to do, the solutions you're trying to utilize to solve, to improve that member experience, and drive down that healthcare spend. Join us for this episode of The Granite List Live, “A unifying experience for plan members is the only way to bring true value.”
About our guests:
Matt Smith - Enterprise Sales, Medxoom
Matt spent the better part of the last decade helping employer groups tackle the challenges of building and executing their employee benefits plans. His focus to balance the needs of employers to avoid increases in benefit costs with the need to reduce the cost burden of the employee led him to his current role working with the Medxoom team as they are continuing to build on their vision of uncomplicating healthcare. Matt draws upon his experience with working with self-funded employer groups, TPAs, Captives, and other digital solutions to help bring best in breed partnerships to his clients as they look for innovative ways to help improve the cost and accessibility hurdles of purchasing healthcare. Matt has a passion for helping to make healthcare the focus rather than the current focus of health insurance for his clients and partners. Matt firmly believes that with healthcare at the center of the purchasing decision rather than health insurance, the power to improve the cost curve is greatly improved through the improved health of employees when they aren’t worried about where to go and how to pay for a doctor’s visit. Working with the team at Medxoom has empowered Matt to be able to help shift that focus back to how to purchase healthcare instead of just health insurance.
