Panel: Employer Direct Contracting: Game-Changing Medical Travel Trend
Date: October 19th, 2015
Time: 10:15am – 11:30am
Location: Marriott Marquis, Washington D.C.

Description: With the sticker-shock of health reforms resonating in the employer community, business leaders are seeking solutions that not only lower costs, but also ensure quality. While there are a few pioneers in the large business category that have tested the waters to execute direct contracting arrangements with targeted Centers of Excellence (COEs) (e.g. Wal-Mart, Lowe’s, Boeing) the vast majority of large employers are now contemplating these arrangements in the year ahead. Furthermore, virtually all of the mid-size and small employers are also receptive to this concept and may aggregate their purchasing power through coalitions and other multiple employer welfare arrangements (MEWAs). A panel of experts will discuss the latest trends in this area.
