Overview

MHPC provides MBGH members special access to a suite of health benefit services that assist them in supporting employees and their families to improve their health. These services are provided by endorsed vendors and highlight key offerings that promote engagement and informed health care decision-making. Due to the special agreements for these services, members can gain access to lower costs, better services and more information from these contracted vendors than most firms could receive from individual agreements. 

You’re invited to take advantage of these opportunities. For more information, contact Judy Hearn at jhearn@mbgh.org

MHPCs health benefit services include:

Transparency Services: Today, most employers are now offering high deductible health plans and promoting the importance of  employees in all types of plans making their own decisions on where and when to get medical services.  In order for this strategy to be most effective, workers need access to decision-making tools that guide their choices on where to get comparison information on the cost and quality of a number of prescribed services including medical, surgical, lab and drugs. For employers with multiple plans or who want customized transparency tools, a third-party resource can be a more objective choice than tools offered by individual health plans.  Find out more about our transparency vendors: Change Healthcare and Compass Professional health Services

Chronic Condition Management: As employers are seeking new and innovative ways to engage their employees to improve their health, these two endorsed vendors are providing high quality services to members for diabetes management. Livongo Health is a new technology-based diabetes management program that includes access to a digital device that provides timely feedback that encourages immediate action and support.  Taking Control of Your Health (TCOYH) is a value-based design, hand-on, condition management program that encourages participants to better manage their condition and adhere to their physician’s treatment program. TCOYH has been offered to MBGH members since 2006 and is built on a mutual accountability model.
