While regulatory changes dominate the benefits landscape, health care trend has continued to rise with little end in sight. The healthcare industry is still highly inefficient and consumer-based approaches have done little to increase transparency. New network models that promise to fundamentally reform the health care industry with value-driven, coordinated care are still provider driven with employers and consumers as their unwilling passengers.

Piper Jordan assists employers with new tactics and cost-containment strategies; freeing up dollars spent on active health benefits. We produce labor and productivity analysis results on our clients’ workforce and recommend industry-leading recommendations regarding restructuring options. More
