Firm Offers Direct Provider Contracting for Employers

GM&A is a leader in direct contracting between employers and healthcare providers……

In 1999 several large progressive-thinking employers approached GM&A because they felt victimized by the increasingly hyper-expensive healthcare industry. They wanted to know if we could help arrest the growth of soaring medical expenditures.

GM&A orchestrated a plan that drastically reduced employers’ healthcare spending without changing benefits. Since that time, GM&A has reduced health care costs for those companies by millions of dollars annually.
