Smarter Self-Funded Health Plans Start Here
The Alliance® helps 300+ employers of all sizes and industries self-fund their benefits – and save money – through custom Smarter NetworksSM and unique Smarter Health SM data analysis tools.
Employers that self-fund take on the risk – and the reward – of paying for their employees’ health care. The savings employers gain comes from low utilization, smarter referrals to high-value providers, and steerage solutions guided by sophisticated claims analysis.
Here are the key features that make self-funding with The Alliance smarter:
Smarter NetworksSMThe Alliance’s provider network design offers you the ability to customize the network you offer to your employees and family members. Our Smarter Networks create three unique ways to customize your network:
- The Comprehensive Network by The Alliance: Our standard network option encompasses over 34,000 health care providers, hospitals, doctors, and clinicians across the Midwest. The Comprehensive Network serves as a broad choice network for your employees.
- The Alliance & Trilogy Health Networks: This network option encompasses more than 41,000 health care providers, equating to over 90% of Wisconsin. The Alliance & Trilogy Health Networks offer your employees the most choices possible.
- The Premier Network by The Alliance: Engaged employers that want a fully customizable health plan choose our tiered option: The Premier Network. Using up to four tiers, you can steer your employees and their family members to smarter decisions within a broad provider network. Tiers range from preferred (best value) to comprehensive (most choice). The Premier Network is great for employers that want total control over their employees’ provider network options.
Access to data is what makes The Alliance different, and by deep-diving into yours, we can find serious savings where others can’t – or won’t.
Smarter Health analysis empowers employers with data-driven insights that help them understand where their health care dollars are spent – and where they can save.
Smarter Health helps you identify cost-saving opportunities for your unique patient population. We use those results to help you figure out where to focus your resources for the most impact and savings.
