The Real Price of COVID-19: Preparing for the Downstream Cost Impact on Employers - April 20, 2021
2:00pm - 3:00pm
With so much healthcare disruption in 2020 and early 2021, benefit leaders are looking for guidance on the best path forward post COVID. While there is much we still don’t know about the long term downstream cost impact of the pandemic, we do know that as hospitals and health systems look to overcome huge financials losses from delayed non-emergent procedures, consumers are making hasty high-cost healthcare decisions based on escalating critical need. In this webinar, Bill Kampine, healthcare economist and Healthcare Bluebook co-founder, and one of Bluebook's employer clients will take a deep dive into rising healthcare costs and the importance of healthcare navigation, specific employer challenges, and macro-trends powering the need for healthcare transparency — plus what to anticipate in terms of cost and utilization for the remainder of 2021 and beyond. With this information, employers will be equipped with actionable steps and tools for how to meet the post- COVID cost surge head on. Outlook invitations to be distributed to GPBCH member shortly.
