    Health Savings Accounts and Self-funding

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will explore all of the latest trends in health savings accounts and self-funding with two special guests. The first guest will be Chad Wilkins, EVP and head of HSA Bank. The rise in health care costs, a shift to consumer-directed health plans and legislative changes are driving the future of health care and are expanding the role of health savings accounts. Additionally, recent studies have indicated a majority of Americans are not prepared to pay for essential expenses in retirement – including the cost of health care. In this segment, Chad Wilkins joins us to bring HSA Bank’s perspective on these industry trends and their impact on employers and consumers. We’ll also explore opportunities for industry providers to participate in emerging trends and maximize the value they provide to their constituents.


    For the second segment, starting at 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Cheryl DeMars, president and CEO, The Alliance, to the program for a discussion on self-funding. The Alliance, a cooperative of employers that self-fund their health benefits, developed the QualityPath initiative to create a path to high quality care at a lower cost. The Alliance QualityPath program is one of few nationwide that measures the performance of a specific doctor at a specific hospital. Other innovative elements include bundled payments and paying close attention to the patient experience with 100 percent coverage of procedure costs, a 90-day warranty and shared decision-making.

    WHAT IS FETICIDE AND WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE

    in Current Events

    WHAT IS FETICIDE, WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE, AND DID SOMEONE SET THE CLOCK BACK?


    Did you hear about the Indiana woman who had a miscarriage and was sent to jail for 40 years for “feticide?”  Or the woman, also in Indiana, who attempted to commit suicide while she was pregnant and spent a year in jail for harming the baby? These aren’t isolated cases, and they aren’t all happening in Indiana.  One study actually found hundreds of cases where women were arrested for doing something while pregnant that some official found harmful to their pregnancies. 


    So what does this mean for women around the country? And what about health care in general? Has health care reform and resultant hospital mergers have an impact on women, on pregnancies, on you?


    Join us Saturday as we talk with Rachel Berkson, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington Executive Director. Rachel has been Associate Director of Washington Community Action Network. the Executive Director of the SEIU Washington State Council, where her primary focus was coordinating the union’s joint political and legislative programs, and from 2000 - 2006 was a lead organizer with the Working Families Party, a labor and community-based grassroots political party in New York State. Join us as we hash over what’s happening with pregnant women and politics, women’s health care, and where we are headed when it comes to women’s health in this country.

    For all of the problems with our medical care system, most people have some form of coverage and can see a physician or access a hospital and a pharmacy. Yes, many are under-served or have had their access denied entirely. But, most people can still count on calling their doctor, scheduling an appointment, and be seen when they need it.


    Consider for a moment, however, that our nation faced a major emergency- perhaps an EMP, an economic crash, or a deadly epidemic. We have seen how little it can take during a crisis before looting starts. In a major disaster, however, some of the first places to be looted will be hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies.

    The Connection Between Health, Productivity and Performance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing the connection between health, productivity and performance in the workplace and what executives really think about employee health with two special guests from HERO, a national leader in the creation of employee health management.


    According to a new survey from HERO, more than 90 percent of surveyed business leaders said health has a very significant or significant influence on productivity and performance. HERO conducted the survey to understand business leaders’ perspectives about the connection between workforce health, productivity and performance. More than 500 business leaders from across the country, representing a variety of industries and company sizes completed the online survey between May and July 2014. The HERO business leader survey evaluated not only how business leaders differentiate between commonly used terms, such as productivity and performance, but to what degree they feel employee health influences corporate priorities like employee morale and engagement and overall corporate performance.


    At 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Jessica Grossmeier, vice president of research, HERO, and Nikki Hudsmith, vice president of operations, Performance pH, to the show for an in-depth look into all of the findings of this new study.
