Spring 2024 Health Plan User Group Series

April 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am Eastern


Since 2012, CPR staff and its member organizations have appreciated having pointed discussions with major national and regional health plans as part of CPR’s health plan user groups (HPUGs).  The HPUGs offer a forum for a two-way dialogue on topics of mutual interest to purchasers and plans, including expanding payment reform, benefit and network design strategies, price and quality transparency, and other emerging strategies.  The HPUGs not only allow purchasers to express and align their expectations, but also offer the plans an efficient means to deliver information to CPR’s Premier Members.

A recent study conducted by Health Care Cost Institute and published in Health Affairs, may be the first-of-its-kind that questions the value of a purchaser self-insuring its benefits versus insuring through a carrier.  In summary, the study found that common services, including endoscopies, colonoscopies, laboratory tests, and moderate-severity emergency department visits, cost more in self-insured plans than in fully-insured plans.  So, in Spring 2024, CPR and its Premier Members will ask the health plans “Is the self-insured value proposition evolving?”

📅 Wednesday, March 20 – Tuesday, April 16
