A Whole New Way of Thinking about - Employee Empowerment
The Health Options PlusTM is Designed to Empower Employees
Let's face it, itâ€™s a jungle out there and navigating through the health care system is like walking through a mine field. Under most employer sponsored health insurance plans, an employee has a relationship with his/her physician for services, with a pharmacist for products and with an insurance company for payment. As long as the payments are made, the relationship â€śworks.â€ť However, what happens when the situation becomes more complex
- A medical course of action is recommended and a second opinion is desired;
- An employee must make an informed decision among various treatment alternatives
- Complications develop following a course of treatment or prescription regime;
- Care must be coordinated among various service providers (e.g. primary care, specialist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, mental health etc.);
- Claims are denied or employees are unable to pay their medical bills.
- Mom or Dad need adult care or skilled nursing
You Are Never Alone
The Health Options PlusTM has partnered with Health Advocate, Inc. to provide each employee with their own personal Health Care Advocate. This is not simply an insurance companyâ€™s customer service department, this is a non-biased independent individual whose primary objective is to assist employees in navigating the complexities of the health care delivery industry.
Through Health Advocate, Health Options PlusTM covered employees have the same caliber of personal healthcare advocacy that is enjoyed by employees of major corporations including CBS, The Home Depot and American Express. The Advocate is available to assist with processing benefit denial appeals, selecting appropriate specialists, coordinating care and treatment. In general, the Advocate is responsible for assisting employees in maximizing the benefits and services available under The Health Options PlusTM and all of its constituent elements.
