Q: What sets ClaimsBridge apart from other builders of High Performance Networks?

A: Quite simply, technology and depth of experience.

Q: How can ClaimsBridge help my company reduce healthcare costs?

A: At organizations with 200 or more employees, approximately 85% of covered workers are enrolled in partially or completely self-funded plans. Employers self-fund to cut costs, hopefully without sacrificing plan service quality. ClaimsBridge helps self-funded employers custom-build and operate their own health provider networks. Building your own network is a practical way to gain even more control over healthcare costs and quality of coverage. ClaimsBridge replaces the “one size fits all” leased network model with a cost effective custom network created around the specific needs of your business and employees. ClaimsBridge’s High Performance Network model provides unmatched flexibility to deliver the most efficient, cost effective coverage attainable.

Q: What is a High Performance Network?

A: There are four structural differentiators from the more costly leased network model. With a High Performance Network:

  1. Providers are selected based on your own group’s specific needs.

  2. Better discounts are contracted from fewer preferred providers.

  3. Direct provider contracts are based on Medicare methodology.

  4. High Performance Network health plan designs benefit your Group, members and providers… without layers of cost for leased network administration, insurance company access fees and other low-value overhead.
