Expansion Northward – the Next Frontier
From the Executive Director
by Geoffrey Schick

The BHCG has long discussed and considered expanding north beyond its 11-county southeast Wisconsin service area towards the Fox Valley and Green Bay. The time has come to move beyond the discussion phase and actively expand our footprint in the state.

We have begun laying the groundwork for expansion into nine northeast Wisconsin counties, with the goal of offering expansion area employers membership and access to UnitedHealthcare’s broad network and Premium Designation program, effective January 1, 2017. The expansion area includes the following counties: Brown, Calumet, Door, Fond du Lac, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Waupaca, and Winnebago. Read More

Willis Towers Watson Offers BHCG Members a Pharmacy Management Solution

One of the significant advantages of BHCG membership is the ability to access programs and services uniquely tailored to BHCG members. The programs and services have been thoroughly reviewed by the BHCG to ensure they provide outstanding value and are aligned with the BHCG’s mission and vision.

One such program, offered by the BHCG’s strategic consultant Willis Towers Watson, can assist employers grappling with the ever-increasing costs associated with their pharmacy benefits.  Willis Towers Watson’s Rx Collaborative (RxC), the largest pharmacy coalition in the country, is uniquely positioned to help employers achieve lower net costs and greater value for their pharmacy benefits programs.

Tier 1 Subcommittee Kicks-Off with First Meeting

The Business Health Care Group has always relied on member employer representatives to provide us with leadership and guidance by serving on various committees and subcommittees. The committees also serve as forums where employers can share best practices and learn from industry experts.

As reported in the June edition, the newest subcommittee to form is the Tier 1 Subcommittee. The Tier 1 Subcommittee is designed to provide member employers with information to take full advantage of the BHCG’s exclusive access to UnitedHealthcare’s Premium Designation program – designed to motivate members to utilize Tier 1-designated physicians who meet the standards for both quality and cost efficiency and freestanding facilities. Read More
