Win the Fight: Deliver Better Benefits at a Better Price

November 29, 2021

A Recap of our November Webinar Session 2

In the second webinar in our three-part series, Healthy Habits and Health Insurance, we explored two strategies to bring to prospects to deliver great benefits above competitors.

 

Below we recap the strategies discussed in the webinar. 

How to Win New Business:
  • Leading with relationships.
  • Leading with services. This is a great way to display the services you provide and show the consultative brokerage strategy.
  • Leading with solutions. Using solutions that can deliver better benefits at a better price.

“A lot of employers are looking for ways to retain employees and using better benefits is a way to do that.” – Chris Calderone, CRO of The Difference Card

Solutions to Win the Fight and offer Better Benefits at a Better Price.

There are two solutions to Win the Fight:

 

1] HSA + MERP Strategy. This strategy works together to maximize savings and deliver better benefits, such as:  

    • Lower Premiums 
    • Employer Savings 
    • Improved Employee Benefits
    1. 2] Dental Difference 
    • Cut Out the Carrier Margin 
    • Improve the Dental Benefits 
    • Offer a unique 100% / 100% / 100% Plan

Introducing Dental Difference as a Solution.

The Problem is Dental Insurance

The problem with dental insurance is that you have employers and employees paying a combined $62 billion into the system but $25 billion of this results in no patient care. 

In fact, 

  • $62 Billion paid in premiums 
  • $25 Billion is lost 
  • 50% don’t use the allocated benefit 
  • Only 2-4% actually maximize it and they pay about $3500 out of their own pocket to do so 
  • Of the 50% that do, only $362 is paid in claims on average 
  • Dental care represents 3% of healthcare spend but also represents 20% of out-of-pocket costs  

What if there was a way for employers and employees to have benefits but recycle any unused dollars?

More specifically how beneficial to a company and their employees would it be to have their healthcare dollars used for, healthcare? How beneficial would it be if you could recycle that $25 billion in unused benefits back to US employers and employees, the people actually paying for it? 

“If you went to the gas station and filled up your car with gas and as soon as you drove away from the gas station you lost 40% of your gas, would you keep driving the car? No, you would get a new car. Traditional Dental Insurance is the same issue. 40% of funding of traditional dental insurance is lost. Dental Difference is the solution to the broken vehicle.” – Dan Marut, D.M.D

The Solution is Dental Difference 

Dental Difference offers a better and more efficient way to use funds. The Dental Difference allows a path for you to reduce your dental insurance costs while improving dental benefits.  

The Difference Card Implements Dental Difference for its Employees 

The Difference Card was faced with a 5% dental renewal increase by Cigna despite decrease in utilization due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

To address this, The Difference Card transitioned into paying our own claims. 

We lowered our fixed costs to the $4,000 range instead of $48,000 and received a $44,000 discount in premium. We then set this money aside to pay for expected claims for the year. 

As a result of implementing this plan we saw a Dental Difference Savings of -15% or $7,019. This allows us to deliver better benefits to our employees at a lower cost.
