Join this industry expert panel including Crawford Advisors Senior Counsel, Patrick Haynes, as they review reference based pricing, a trend that is gaining momentum with large employers and leading carriers. Referenced based pricing plans will now be offered by the second largest U.S. insurer to organizations with at least 100 employees. These innovative plans let employers pay only a set amount for a medical service, asking workers who select costlier care to pay the difference. Other carriers are following suit, some estimate that up to 67% of employers are now considering using this plan option. Referenced based plans offer the potential to save billions of dollars, our expert panel will discuss this and the following topics:
