Health Benefits Services

At the request of a number of MBGH members, MHPF is now offering a suite of health benefits services that an employer can take advantage of such as transparency and chronic condition management.

As a member of MBGH, an employer can take advantage of the umbrella contracts with each of these vendor partners, where a core set of rates, services and performance guarantees have already been negotiated.

Each of our endorsed partners offers a unique set of services. Some offer online and mobile decision-making tools while others provide high-touch engagement strategies, communication support or face-to-face coaching. All provide employers the opportunity to determine what services would be the best fit for their company’s overall population health engagement strategy. 

We invite you to learn more about these services either through our employer-only group session or contact us at 312-372-9090  x105 to set up a meeting.
