Cost Savings You Can Count On

Better health, more cost control

Providing better-quality care and engaging people in their health leads to healthier, happier and more productive employees. And that adds up to cost savings for everyone. 

Here are other ways we can help you and your employees manage costs and save.

Give employees more options

Our consumer-directed health plans help your employees have more say in their health care spending – while giving them more choice. We make it easier for employees to choose wisely ... and save a little while they’re at it.

Rewarding better health care

Under the “old model” of health care, the pieces of a patient’s history were scattered everywhere. The result? Waste. Duplication. Inefficiency.

Under our new accountable care model, things are different. Doctors and hospitals are rewarded for delivering better-coordinated and higher-quality health care, rather than on the number of patients they see or the volume of services they deliver. 

The result? Lower costs, greater value. For you and for your employees.

Plan ahead and save

Today, employers can offer health benefits tax-free. Starting in 2020, however, an excise tax (or "Cadillac" tax) goes into effect. It's part of the Affordable Care Act.

Higher-cost plans will pay a 40 percent tax on the plan’s value above a certain limit. This tax will likely affect employers’ health benefits decisions.

By planning ahead, you can save on your taxes and employee benefits, while still benefiting from employee health and productivity.
