USI’s Population Health Management team identified above average disease prevalence, gaps in care primarily in diabetes management, and higher than normal emergency room visits and in-patient hospitalizations among the health plan members of a West Coast-based ethnic food distributor with 600 employees and 1400 members on the plan. By implementing USI’s proposed CORE HEALTH strategy, the company experienced a 62% increase in preventive visits, which are vital to identifying potential high-cost claims. Also, emergency room visits dropped 40% due to increased primary care visits. Diabetes management compliance increased resulting in a savings for chronic disease management of approximately $145K to the self-funded plan. Consequently, average renewal increases for the company dropped to less than 5% in the past 3 years, from more than 10% in the preceding 2 years, resulting in an approximate savings of more than $1.1 million.
