We shop for cars by comparing quality and price. We do the same when buying a home. Why don’t we shop healthcare? Well, because we’ve always been told that our insurance will pay for it. As long as we keep that attitude costs will continue to skyrocket. This entertaining presentation identifies the connection between engaging in healthcare decisions and preserving wealth. It showcases how millennial culture can positively infect the home and workplace to not only shift the paradigm in America to a healthy living perspective, but at the same time drive your personal healthcare costs down by as much as 30%. The key to reducing healthcare costs is to become an Engaged Healthcare Consumer. Healthcare has become unaffordable for the average American. It’s also bankrupting American business as the hyperinflation is out of control year over year. After conducting extensive research in preparation for authoring a book for Forbes, Dr. Luke discovered a true length between health and wealth, and developed a formula of proven tactics and practices that can save both individuals and businesses significant dollars on healthcare spending while living a healthier lifestyle! But until the individual becomes and EHC, it will never happen!

Presenting: Healthcare Transparency: You Deserve to Know! As a participant in the Q4i conference, we assume you are here because you want to help transform the healthcare business and solve for the runaway cost issues and lack of quality outcomes that have led to the situation that Employers find themselves in. In this presentation, we will reshape the paradigm and truly focus on quality transparency and make us all realize how silly it has not existed up until now. To accept that quality is a constant for all providers is like assuming that every human was meant to be 7 feet tall. Not accurate or far from true. The fact of the matter is that quality does matter and patients deserve to know. In addition, many brokers and consultants are misguided into thinking that network discounts matter, they don’t. In fact, if you are paying network discounted rates at 55% or whatever it might be, you are paying retail costs for care. Who pays retail costs anymore? Answer: No one. In this presentation, be ready for the new norm and do not accept network discounts or the belief that every doctor provides the same quality of care.

  8. 8. www.q4intel.com #Q4Live: “Building a new normal” Sponsoring Partner Networking conference for forward-thinking benefits advisors August 27 – 29, 2018 | San Diego, CA Troy Parant, West Coast Sales Director Based on an employer’s business needs, being fully insured may be the best and/or only option. By redesigning the way they deliver their benefits while still being fully insured, you can provide the upside that employers typically enjoy by going truly self-funded: significantly lower cost, completely customized benefits and fully transparent claims reporting, with virtually none of the risk. When only paying for claims as they’re incurred, with a guaranteed cap, employers are able to offer the most cost effective plan, control their own claims data to track where the dollars are actually being spent and get out of the cycle of potentially having to move carriers, change networks or take benefits away from employees to control costs.

This paradigm shift is available for any group that chooses to pursue a self-funded or partially self-funded (level-funded) arrangement, as employers only pay for the health claims their people consume. By managing the supply chain, which are the actual cost of the items utilized like office visits, surgeries, imaging, hospitals and drugs, buyers are able to pay attention to the cost and quality of each unit of healthcare, then collectively they are able to lower costs together and improve the predictability of outcomes. Reduce the health care costs, and you reduce the health insurance costs.

Stoploss is asking questions about these high dollar claimants and the only information I can get is "they failed to engage so the case was closed". Isn't there something more that can be done? I've got all these reports OR claims data, but I'm not quite sure how to analyze it, OR what to do with it after it's analyzed. Can somebody help? I'm not sure which cost containment strategies are going to be meaningful and/or generate ROI for my client. Is there some way I can cut through the vendor clutter and actually make reliable recommendations? I've already purchased every cost containment product I can find, but my client's plan is still running hot. I've got this fully insured group that really ought to be self-funded, but I can't get good data from the carrier, can't get a competitive stoploss quote, or am having trouble getting the client to understand their REAL financial risk versus their potential maximum liability. I've got this really unique, weird, special, hard, at risk/high jeopardy (they're going to fire me if I don't do something), needy, demanding, cutting edge, creative, "really gets it", about to go bankrupt, frustrated, unionized, paternalistic, about to get an 85% rate hike/renewal, has two $5m lazers, cost conscious group...won't somebody please save me? (OBTW, they're only 6 ee lives!! LOL) If you've found yourself in any of these situations, or you've asked yourself these (or similar) questions, then this is for you. Nurse Deb is here to help (and specializes in really unique, weird....etc) Presenting: Medical Management Done Right: The Secret to Success in Health Care Supply Chain Management

Alex Lickerman, MD, Co-founder, Presenting: The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self
  18. 18. www.q4intel.com #Q4Live: “Building a new normal” Sponsoring Partner Networking conference for forward-thinking benefits advisors August 27 – 29, 2018 | San Diego, CA Rhea Campbell: Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a true team player in health plan design. It can fit into any plan along the continuum of plan designs from fully insured to partially self-funded to self-funded with bundles. We think of DPC as your partner, creating and communicating insight into the population health of the group to inform plan design changes and to show where diverting care saved costs that will not show up in claims. Alex Lickerman, MD: “Based on his book, The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self, Alex Lickerman, MD will argue that resilience isn’t something with which only a fortunate few of us have been born, but rather something we can all take action to develop. In this groundbreaking talk, Dr. Lickerman outlines four of the eight principles discussed in the book and details not only the data that supports their effectiveness in increasing resilience, and decreasing anxiety and depression, but also how audience members can put those principles to work in their own lives."
