Serves as healthcare price transparency provider
BEDFORD, N.H. (Oct. 17, 2014) — Compass Healthcare Advisers will continue to be the healthcare price transparency provider to the more than 256,000 employees in the Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan (KEHP), including the under age 65 retiree group, the organization announced today.
Compass utilizes engaging member communications to educate KEHP employees about the large cost differentials that exist for the same quality healthcare inpatient and outpatient services, then arms them with the tools and incentives they need to make smarter healthcare decisions based on price and location. The result is a reduction in out-of-pocket costs for employees and significantly reduced claims costs for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. And when employees select a cost-effective location, they earn cash rewards.
