APEX Reverses the Trend!
The APEX Health and Wellness Preferred Membership Program educates and engages your employees. Through our Lifestyle Management Program, some medical conditions could be reversed or significantly reduced. While our Tele-Medicine Program provides a simple, cost-effective, and time saving alternative to traditional in-person physician office visits.
Together, these APEX Member benefits redirect many claims away from the employer-sponsored health insurance plan.
Over the last 10 years, total plan premiums have risen over 80%. While employee contributions have risen over 90%. It is clear, premiums have continued to rise, and over the last several years MLR Rebates are falling.
What this inverse relationship illustrates is that the utilization of insurance is rising. An educated assumption is the increasing popularity of Wellness and Disease Management Programs inside of employer-sponsored health insurance plans are the cause.
The MLR as an Advantage
How can an employer use the MLR as an advantage with APEX?
The MLR must either be distributed to the employees as cash or be used for the benefit of the employees.
By applying the MLR Rebate to the cost of APEX, the employer can reduce the cost of APEX year after year. As the utilization of APEX increases, plan utilization decreases, and expected MLR rebates should increase. In time, premiums will have to fall.
Using the 2013 MLR Rebate of $135 per employee, a 100 employee group would receive $13,500. When used to offset the cost of APEX, it represents a 20% reduction in the first year cost of APEX Membership for employees.
