HighRoads, the company providing employers – for the first time – complete control over their health care costs and compliance, today announced HighRoads Consulting for health and welfare programs. The new consulting service, under the direction of health and welfare leader Josh Miley, is a refreshing alternative for industry advice that – for the first time – puts employers in control at one-third the cost of using a traditional HR benefits consultant.
“Today’s economy demands a new approach to the delivery of health and welfare consulting services,” said Michael Byers, president and CEO, HighRoads. “HighRoads Consulting challenges the traditional consultant delivery model by leveraging market-leading technology to drive both health plan and consulting efficiency without sacrificing the quality of employee benefits. These services have been developed in direct response to needs presented by our Fortune 500 clients for a complete technology-enabled consulting approach that delivers high value at a lower overall cost.”
HighRoads Consulting will leverage technology HighRoads has perfected for complete benefits supply chain management. New services offered by HighRoads Consulting for health and welfare include the evaluation of your program strategy, design and pricing, a competitive analysis of your existing plans to your industry peers using real-time plan design and cost data, results interpretation of RFP responses, negotiation of final contracts, financial and population health management and vendor management.
HighRoads Consulting for health and welfare offers the following benefits:
* Complete solution of health and welfare expertise and industry-standard technology
* Competitive, transparent bidding environment resulting in lower costs
* Dramatically reduced consulting rates through improved efficiency
* One system of record for complete management of the benefits supply chain
HighRoads Consulting for health and welfare will be directed by Josh Miley, who recently joined HighRoads from Towers Perrin Health and Welfare Practice, where he was a senior consultant for nine years. During his time with Towers Perrin, Miley led health and welfare consulting responsibilities for several customers and was a leader of the company’s national “measurement” efforts focused on population health analytics and cost/ROI measurement of health-focused programs. He was also the national health and welfare liaison for the Employee Benefit Information Center (EBIC) benchmarking database.
“By matching consulting best practices and methodologies with advanced technology, we have defined a repeatable consulting process that allows us to deliver high quality consulting services in the most time and cost-efficient manner,” said Miley.
