…with powerful health care and claims management systems to save them money.

We believe your investment in a health plan should be treated like any other aspect of your business, with upfront knowledge of the costs and all attempts to weed out waste. MBA saves employers more than nickels and dimes with many methods of management, including:

Metrics Based Pricing: Why rejoice over a 30% discount on a claim that is 1000% too high? Metrics Based Pricing reduces claims to a “cost of service + reasonable margin” level by auditing claims for unfair markups and inaccurate or fraudulent billing. This results in an average $1500 per employee savings – AND WE CAN DO IT WITHOUT RESTRICTIVE NETWORKS!

Medical Management Services: We team up with an industry leader using a time proven method of getting compliance and a "buy-in" to health improvement.  Many inpatient stays can be prevented or shortened through regular, periodic, contact between nurses, providers, and participants.  Beneficial intervention helps prevent "flare-ups" of conditions that require hospitalizations.  This has proven to reduce hospital admissions and the average length of stay.

HealthSteps™: Wellness plans and initiatives that do make a difference in the overall health of your workforce and drive down health claims.

Prescription Benefit Management: Includes multiple strategies to reduce high-cost pharmaceuticals.  Includes changes to plan design, alternative methods of care, Pharma-Travel and use of alternative funding strategies for specialty drugs.

Internet Prescription Bidding: Allowing employees to save up to 87%.

Projecting Plan Change Impact: The projection of benefit costs and savings is one of our underwriting core competencies. Go ahead – suggest benefit changes, add or drop a plan component, change eligibility: MBA will estimate the financial impact on the plan and offer suggestions to tweak the benefits to suit your objectives. We offer the facts then you call the shots.

When these and other health and claims management steps are taken throughout the plan year, employers realize savings on claims costs. In addition, insurance carriers react to the savings by offering better renewals in subsequent years. Our management systems become an employer's financial win for years to come.
