Customer case study

The Challenge

The company wanted better health benefits at a lower cost for the company and employees. With their traditional plans, they reached a limit on what they could do with plan design and contributions and couldn’t continue to effectively move the needle on health care costs and trends. They needed a plan that delivered value and reduced wasteful spending.

The Solution

The company’s commitment to value-based care sparked strong interest in evaluating the Surest health plan. They liked that the Surest plan provides members opportunities to save by choosing providers evaluated as higher-value based on quality, efficiency, and overall effectiveness of care. Knowing costs in advance and removing the burden of a deductible also appealed to the company and their decision to offer the Surest plan.
