Session Description:

Resources: Learn from DeSoto Memorial Hospital (DMH) how they implemented an aggressive cost containment / risk mitigation program utilizing Mitigate Partners’ FairCo$t Health Plans, resulting in best-in-class benefits at substantially lower costs, all while improving clinical and financial outcomes for the health plan and their employees. Vince Sica and Lois Hilton will share how it wasn’t easy at the beginning, but now they have never been more excited about their health plans. Dr. Lee Gross will also explain why Direct Primary Care (DPC) was one of the key foundational building blocks to EMPLOYER-Built Healthcare that allowed DMH to regain control over their benefits and costs. DeSoto Memorial-Built Healthcare allowed DMH to actively manage and Demystify their Healthcare Costs - Having Health Insurance… THEIR Way and on THEIR Terms....Giving Control back to THEM!

After hearing about how we at Mitigate Partners were significantly reducing health insurance costs for Florida based employers, Patient Rights Advocate (www.patientrightsadvocate.org) asked if they could film DeSoto’s success story.  PRA has been creating videos to showcase how real price transparency and direct contracting are lowering costs for innovative employers.  The group has shared these videos with Health and Human Services (HHS) Leadership and the White House Administration to highlight successful price transparency models in action and to support the need for real transparency.
