Components of a BritePath Health Plan

null

BritePath Analytics is the foundation of any group health insurance plan.  This resource enables GPI to extract detailed claims data on any fully-insured group health plan.  Armed with medical and Rx claims data, CFO’s and HR Directors are able to assess risk, identify savings opportunities, negotiate renewals and explore alternative funding options..

null

BritePath Elevate is where technology, transparency and plan design meet.  The outdated singularly focused insurance plan is transformed into a high-performance health plan capable of ensuring members have the guidance they so desperately need to make informed health care decisions.  Think of it as everything you love about your current plan plus everything it’s missing.

null

BritePath Insights is the process of sharing the analytical data with alternative carriers, TPA’s, Stop Loss carriers, Pharmacy Benefit Managers and other cost control solution partners to determine to what extent they are currently overpaying to medical and Rx care.  Then taking the results and presenting our clients and prospects with an easy to understand benefit package, savings analysis and three to five year benefit strategy.

BritePath Engage provide the positive incentive that members need to make sure every opportunity to avoid unnecessary and costly care is possible. Reducing or eliminating member OOP costs has the compounding impact of lowering premiums and increasing moral.

STRATEGIC BENEFIT PLANNING

Businesses need an advisor that does more than just shop for and service their insurance products. They need an advisor that understands health care and insurance that helps align the benefit strategy with
the long term goals of the company. In response, GPI created the BritePath approach to strategic benefit planning.

This approach consists of a three-step process that Reduces CostsImproves Outcomes and Eliminates Misaligned Incentives. By establishing long-term goals with actionable items, we are able to help our clients build a sustainable benefit strategy that helps them become the employer of choice.

HR Support and Vendor Management

HR has the heaviest workload of any professional.  Hiring, firing, onboarding, open enrollment and qualifying events are a never-ending cycle.  Technology can make the job more efficient and effective but vetting the endless vendors can be a challenge in itself.

GPI advisors assist your management and executive staff to identify the right resources, tools, experts, and vendors to get the job done right.  GPI advisors meet with you on site to educate and guide you through the healthcare system.

null

Insurance Products

At the core of GPI’s solutions are the insurance products that provide the first level of protection for your people related to healthcare, dental, financial and personal risks.

Our full array of products fit seamlessly into your benefits strategy always with the well-being of your people in mind, as well as your companies long term business strategy.  Learn more about the insurance products.

Engagement and Education

Healthcare and insurance are confusing.  Couple this with the lack of transparency regarding the quality and price of care and it is a recipe for disaster.  Healthcare is the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US.  It doesn’t have to be this way.

GPI believes educating our members allows us to deliver a huge return on your investment for our team.  Your members are able to navigate the healthcare maze, reduce their costs and lower your health insurance spend.  This results in lower turnover and a happier and healthier workforce.
