Health Advocate, Inc.

By helping employees become better healthcare consumers, tools like HCE+ can lead to improved health outcomes while reducing costs for both employees and their employers.

Health Advocate™, Inc., the nation’s leading healthcare advocacy and assistance company and a subsidiary of West Corporation, is hosting a complimentary webinar on March 25 featuring its Health Cost Estimator+™ pricing transparency tool.

Costs for common healthcare procedures can vary widely, even within the same zip code, making it critical for consumers to have access to accurate information to help them make the most cost-effective decisions about their healthcare. Join Health Advocate’s pricing transparency experts as they discuss how employees can utilize a tool like Health Cost Estimator+ to easily access pricing for medical services. The webinar will also highlight how Health Advocate’s personalized support further engages employees in their health and helps them take the next step to get the care they need.

“As the use of consumer-driven health plans continues to rise, it’s more important than ever that employees have resources available to help them shop, compare and choose providers who offer the best value at the best price,” said Michael Cardillo, President of Health Advocate. “By helping employees become better healthcare consumers, tools like HCE+ can lead to improved health outcomes while reducing costs for both employees and their employers.”

The featured speaker will be Marcia Otto, Vice President of Pricing Transparency Applications at Health Advocate. Otto is a Silicon Valley software veteran whose expertise is in developing healthcare transparency solutions for payers, providers, and consumers in order to achieve better outcomes with quality and cost.

The Health Cost Estimator+ webinar is part of Health Advocate’s 2015 Solutions Series, developed to help employers engage employees in their health while improving outcomes and reducing healthcare costs.
