The challenge

For years, a Georgia city’s health plan was managed by a traditional TPA that was no longer meeting the needs of its employees and financial goals. The City and their consultant wanted a more sophisticated and active health plan partner, so they turned to Healthgram’s self-funded solution.

Seeking Exceptional Care

The municipality was interested in Healthgram’s robust in-house resources, like experienced clinical teams and powerful IT infrastructure. The City and their consultant were also looking for a new health plan provider who could easily integrate with their established:

– Local provider network

– Near-site clinic

– Direct PBM relationship

Healthgram brought the in-house expertise needed to seamlessly integrate with the City’s existing partners as well as elevate their impact.

Solutions that Save

By choosing Healthgram as its trusted partner, the City was able to implement a custom-designed health plan that not only fulfilled the vision for smarter healthcare, but also resulted in significant cost savings and employee engagement.

The City averages over $200,000 in annual steerage savings through our Healthgram Connect advocacy program. In addition, the City has saved over 50% in total Rx costs via their preferred PBM and pharmacy consultant relationship.

Since making the transition to Healthgram, the City has maintained four straight years of flat healthcare costs and industry-leading employee engagement.
