Linda’s responsibilities at Penn Freedom Health Plan:
Linda will review your claims data, evaluate areas where costs are high and offer a solution. For example, if an employee is on an expensive brand name drug and a low-cost generic drug is found to have the same health benefits. Linda would speak with the employee and explain the low-cost drug to them. She would also explain to the employee the savings in deductible between generic and brand. Claims data needs to be reviewed by someone who has medical experience. If not, there’s no knowledge base to find solutions.
Testing is very important in the reduction of health cost. Linda has produced a Health Risk Assessment, Comprehensive Blood Panel form, and an Comprehensive Physical form. In many instances a company will spend a lot of money on biometric testing with little positive results. This is because a medical professional doesn’t provide a solution to a health issue. If an employee has a health issue, Linda will speak to the employee and offer an action plan. In many instances this involves contacting the employees family doctor.
Nutrition is a key factor in maintaining health. The Health Risk Assessment will identify employees that have poor nutrition. Linda is available to speak to those employees one on one to implement a healthy diet.
Our Wellness Activity Platform is Sprout At Work. Linda will assist in creating health challenges and rewards.
