October 2017 Cost Containment Tips

  • When considering the engagement of a cost containment partner, research at least two options. There may be several good choices, but seemingly minor differences can have a significant impact on your particular group.
  • Review your claims data to recognize trends. Certain conditions like cancer and diabetes don’t affect every group. But if you are dealing with these issues, targeted case management is available for such diseases.
  • Select a PBM who will customize solutions to address your needs and areas of high cost.
  • Analyze your group’s wellness goals and review outcomes to verify the goals are being attained. If not, you may need to rethink the approach to wellness.
  • Share your experiences, questions, and concerns with the TPA, broker, or Roundstone. Take advantage of Roundstone’s services and talk to us about your needs. Our goal is to help you find the right resources to contain costs!
