Bill, you can share the following if you’d like:
Last fiscal year (Oct-08 through Sep-09), TISDs Medical Benefit Plan paid 22.1% of billed medical charges. Total charges were $28,985,140.10, total payments were $6,393,165.45. And that was including a >$600K premi claim.
Direct contracting works… I’d like to see anyone match these discounts.

Editor’s Note: Dr. Dave and his partner, Michael Jeneke assist employers throughout the United States in contracting with medical care providers. The Tyler Independent School District is a stunning representation of what can be accomplished by directly contracting with medical care providers. They have proven that hospitals and doctors will compete for business if given the opportunity. For more information go to www.gma-usa.com
