What is Connect Benefit?
Connect Benefit is a concierge service for self-insured employer groups. And we help reduce healthcare costs by working with their employees to navigate their care to our direct contracted providers. These providers provide high-quality care at a transparent and reasonable cost. When a member needs a specialist or a procedure, they call our team and we help them to the right providers and they do not only save themselves money but they also save money for their group. We contract with many different provider types to ensure we can help our members from point of diagnosis to recovery without having to pay any out of pocket.
How is Connect Benefit different?
Well, the majority of people don’t understand insurance. They don’t know how to shop for care. They go wherever they’re told to go by their doctors. We help them by guiding them through the process step-by-step. We help them find the right providers and we follow the members to ensure that they receive the care they need, and without getting gouged at pricing. We help them financially because by using our Connect Benefit providers they don’t have any out-of-pocket expenses. This is a win-win for everyone; the member, the employer, and the health plan.
Who is a good fit for Connect Benefit?
Chris, we are a fit for any self-insured employer group, regardless of size, anyone who is looking for ways to reduce healthcare spend. Benefits are typically the number two spend employers have behind payroll. Benefits are also a major influence in recruiting and retaining employees, and we just help make it a benefit instead of just an insurance. We’re also a fit for any brokers out there looking for an alternative product to bring to the table for their clients.
