    GoodRx Saves Consumers -- and Employers -- $ on Pharmacy Expenses

    in Health

    When GoodRx first came up on CoHealth's radar in 2012, the company's co-founder, Doug Hirsch, described the mission this way: "We want to mimic companies like Orbitz and create prescription-drug-price transparency so consumers are informed and can afford the medications they need." 

    Since then, GoodRx went on to win awards and accolades for its consumer-friendly interface (including CoHealth kudos for helping one of your co-hosts save $40 on a Rx). The company has also grown its services to include a transparent PBM for employers, a GoodRx plaform for physicians, and even a GoodRx search for pet pharmaceuticals.

    Total Employee Well-being & Private Exchanges for Smaller Employers

    in Business

    On 2015's final program, the hosts talk with special guests from TailorWell and CBIZ on topics related to private exchanges and workplace wellness. After a short break for the holidays, we'll be back on the air on Friday, Jan. 15.

    The first guest on this week's show is Peter Morris, CEO of TailorWell, a Seattle-based tech company that builds product-centered private exchanges for smaller employers (five to 500 employees). Zillow’s model in the real estate industry can be applied in the small group health insurance market. While brokers are scrambling to respond to competing business models from the likes of Zenefits and Gusto, their small employer customers remain under-served. The majority of small employers are concerned about providing health insurance because it’s the right thing to do, and they want the right product at the right price. They value product and price transparency, and seek guidance and value from their broker. In this interview, Peter and the hosts will discuss how to deliver what small employers need in a more efficient and valuable way.

    The second guest on the show – and final guest of 2015 – is Emily Noll, the national director of CBIZ Wellness Solutions. In this interview, Emily and the hosts will discuss improving employee engagement with holistic well-being programs. Employers are taking the next step in workplace wellness: they’re focusing on complete employee well-being. Rather than solely focusing on employees’ physical health, the move focuses on complete well-being to improve all areas of life – including health physically, mentally, financially, socially, emotionally, etc. Other trends in the wellness/well-being space in 2016 involve incorporating wearable devices into programs and using gamification to produce results.

    in Education

    How to Face the Scariest Employment Challenges of 2016

    in Business

    There are a number of hot issues, new developments and emerging challenges that will likely catch employers by storm in 2016. Supreme Court decisions, federal and state laws, and actions by federal regulatory agencies have called into question the very nature of the employer-employee relationship as well as what rights and benefits employees should be entitled to in the workplace.

    From providing paid sick leave and equal employment, to extending equal rights and benefits to same-sex partners and accommodating pregnant women, an employer must comply with new obligations that may require altering business operations.

    Join us as our guest Beth Zoller (@BethZoller1) and host Meghan M. Biro discuss a variety of topics you'll want to know to avoid fines, penalties, complaints, litigation or harm to the organization's reputation. This #WorkTrends conversation will help employers and HR professionals be proactive and prepare to respond to changes in a meaningful way.

    200th Show Special with MCC President Jessica Walker

    in Business

    On April 27, my guest will be Jessica Walker, the President of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. She is a public policy expert who has advocated on behalf of New York City residents, neighborhoods and businesses for more than 15 years -- with successes in every role taken on. Her work has left an indelible imprint on the city that she loves.

    Before joining the Chamber in 2016 she served as Vice President for Government Affairs at the Partnership for New York City, which represents the city’s major corporate employers. Jessica served as the chief liaison between elected officials and the city’s business leaders and as a policy analyst/advisor/writer for the organization's influential CEO. The objective was to advance pro-growth policies and forge public-private partnerships that strengthen New York City’s economy and create jobs. Prior to that, Jessica was a leading advocate for elderly New Yorkers.

    At the New York Academy of Medicine she oversaw the launch of Age-friendly New York City, a public-private initiative designed to make the city a better place in which to grow old. Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg implemented 59 policy improvements based on this work such as lengthening the time allotted for pedestrians to cross street intersections.

    Jessica also served as a policy expert at United Neighborhood Houses of New York, an association of settlement houses and community centers throughout the five boroughs. There, she led the organization's research, advocacy and policy work on issues relating to older adults and their social service needs.

    She also led a successful pilot initiative to increase utilization of geriatric mental health services and authored an influential report that dramatically heightened the city’s response to the high numbers of New York seniors aging alone and “at risk” of becoming socially isolated.

    When Congress listens more to Wall Street than Main Street Policyholders loose

    in Podcasting

    When Congress listens more to Wall Street than Main Street, Insurance Policyholders are placed at a very serious disadvantage. Why? Because the number of Lobbyist for Conglomerates who participate internationally have a great deal more power and influence to set Insurance Industry Standards, layout Employee Benefit Programs that can be setup in their favor against claims filed by insured, and make policyholders wait for almost a decade before receiving any settlements, if they get and compensation at all.  And why is this happening? Congress is listening more to them than you.  

    Do your political representatives know how you feel about this situation?  Have you ask them if they will support Insured Civil Rights Legislation?  Have you let them know how long it has taken to receive any benefits from your insurance carrier or how life has changed since being involved in a car accident?

    Let's talk about these issues today.  Save the Date!
