Looking Forward to the Challenge
the Executive Director Report
by Geoffrey Schick

I am honored and pleased to be addressing you in this, my first Executive Director Report. I would like to begin by thanking my esteemed predecessor, Dianne Kiehl, for the foundation she help to lay for the Business Health Care Group’s success. Her hard work and commitment helped bring us to where we are today. I also want to thank her for the many hours she spent with me to share her knowledge and expertise as I prepared to fill some rather large shoes.

I have met many of our current employer members, providers and partners and have been grateful for their warm reception. Rest assured, I feel the trust you have placed in me to move forward seamlessly in our efforts to improve health care value in our market.

One of the more pleasant surprises I have received so far has been the number of familiar faces that are still in the BHCG or actively working with us toward improvements. I was involved with the BHCG more than a decade ago as an executive steering committee member representing DaimlerChrysler Corporation (more information about my background can be found here). It’s good to reconnect with those relationships and join forces again! Read More

UnitedHealthcare Partnership Update

Featuring news and information about our new administrative partner, effective January 1, 2016

Employee/member communication, education and engagement play a critical role in a successful transition to the new BHCG/UnitedHealthcare plan for 2016. Both the BHCG and UHC are looking to support BHCG employer member’s communication plans with regard to the transition.

For many employers, the consumer tools found on the myuhc.com website and the UnitedHealthcare tiered benefit strategy represent a culture change and an opportunity to educate and promote consumerism among employees and dependents. The BHCG understands consumer engagement is key to driving improved health care decision-making in the new BHCG/UHC offering. Read More
