One topic employers are often focused on is how to manage their healthcare spending. In addition to the financial aspects of managing healthcare spending, being proactive about the quality of care employees receive is beneficial for improving the health of your population.

Our health plan is focused on helping employers keep spending costs down while improving the health of their employees. Eliance Health Solutions offers a variety of benefits to help achieve this such as a Tiered Network, Wellness programs, and an emphasis on a proactive approach to care.

Ensuring employees get important health screenings is crucial when looking at potential long-term health risks and being proactive in the management of these risks. Screenings help to identify diabetes, high cholesterol, an unhealthy weight, and other long-term health factors.

Our health plans help to manage long-term health costs in the future by:
  • Developing Care Paths to help members receive care and manage medical costs. Our Medical Director and dedicated team of nurses work to ensure patients with conditions such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension receive the care they need to help reduce the impact of these conditions. We are also working directly with Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health to make sure quality measures are identified and implemented across the health system.
  • Helping health plan members establish a Primary Care Provider that can guide them through the care they need to ensure preventative screenings are received and identify when they need to access care at at a specialist.   
  • Providing a Wellness program that is integrated into the health plan to keep employees healthy and on the job.
  • Offering a financial incentive for employees that participate in the Wellness program by saving them money on their annual deductible.
  • Offering defined programs that save substantial amounts of money on specialty drugs and dialysis.
One of the advantages of our health plans is the way our team helps to track financial progress. Eliance Health Solutions Client Managers meet with employer groups on an ongoing basis to review their plan performance and answer any questions related to healthcare spending. In addition to this, our health plan provides ongoing reporting to clients so they can monitor their costs throughout the plan year and have a more proactive role in their healthcare spending.
