Never has there been a better opportunity for consultants and brokers to redefine and maximize their value in the health insurance profession. Employers are increasingly aware that value-based benefits require more than a shift in marketing and one-shot discounts. Bonuses and incentives bind brokers and consultants to unvetted broad networks and short-lived, discount-driven savings. Provider discounts only work if you start with a common price, and hospital rates can vary 300% or more on medical billing codes.
Clients are demanding transparency, flexibility, and measurable ROI on their healthcare dollars. In a performance-based arrangement, brokers and consultants can build creative compensation packages that allow for variable compensation to be earned based on achieving specific metrics and maintaining pre-defined standards.
This re-alignment of client-consultant interests could be the single most important change in the health plan delivery space.

Carefully selected networks deliver what employers need to quell inefficient care and rising costs, while increasing improved patient outcomes, strengthening the patient/PCP relationship, and empowering primary care physicians.
- Brian Wallach, Healthcare Highways SVP of Business Development
Traditional networks rarely offer performance-based incentives to physicians. The typical fee-for-service (FFS) model reimburses providers for the number of services they provide. High-performance networks reward physicians for delivering efficient, outcome-driven care that results in improved patient health outcomes. All of Healthcare Highways’ proprietary networks operate with national networks to create a nationwide solution for employers and members.

Data is only as good as its accuracy, timeliness, and ease of access. Errors, inconsistencies, limited accessibility, and gaps in data affect your bottom line. Through our collaborative, integrated data reporting processes, we provide transparent, clearly explained, and actionable health plan data in near real-time.
Our Care Continuity and Support program approves in-network benefits to be delivered by an out-of-network provider for a limited time for qualifying members. This ensures members approved for the program undergoing certain active medical treatments can transition safely to our provider network. We collaborate with the member’s current team of healthcare providers, our care coordination teams, and our provider networks during this process
Healthcare Highways uses care coordination to target those top five percent of members who drive 80 percent of healthcare costs. Care coordinators use stratified data to identify risk categories within the member population, and are empowered to reach members where they are. Member engagement can be telephonic, or face-to-face in an onsite setting. In focusing on each member and keeping healthcare personal, care coordinators can positively impact the health of some of our neediest and most at risk members. In this way, the total cost of care can be sustainably controlled over time.
