The Problem

How are out of network costs affecting your healthcare plan today? Isn’t it time to make your network work for your business and your members?

Preventable issues like a suboptimal network structure or low-performing providers have a monumental impact on plan cost.

The problem is that optimizing network design requires deep insight into how your network is performing today. Unfortunately, most employers lack critical knowledge about member needs, network performance, and costs, which is needed to identify and make meaningful improvements.

The Solution

The sources of network inefficiency are complex and multi-faceted. 4C Health Solutions empowers employers to identify and embrace opportunities for meaningful network improvements by understanding the many strengths and weaknesses of their current network design:

Verify & Quantify Out of Network Spend

4C enables employers to verify that every out of network claim corresponds to out of network care, and quantify total out of network spend.

Educate Members & Reduce Out of Network Usage

By providing employers the insights needed to educate members on the cost of out of network care, 4C supports the overall reduction of out of network usage.

Identify High & Low Performers

By scoring providers by popularity and performance, 4C empowers employers to eliminate low-performing providers and bring in those with superior accountability and outcomes.

Proactively Structure Network Design

4C provides employers critical visibility into how their providers and rates stack up to other businesses and industry benchmarks, allowing them to better optimize their network design.
