BUILDERS ASSOCIATION MEMBERS NOW HAVE ACCESS TO UNIQUE PROVIDER NETWORK DESIGNED TO REDUCE COSTS
RENO, Nev. – Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014 – Reno-Tahoe Medical Associates (RTMA) and Saint Mary's Medical Group have partnered with the Builders Association of Northern Nevada (BANN) to improve health outcomes and reduce the dollars spent on medical insurance. The new partnership is a unique program offered exclusively to members of BANN through a benefit plan with Key Healthy Partners Nevada.
"Healthy employees and their families are of prime importance to all employers," stated Teri Scharosch, Director of Operations for BANN. "No less important is the ability to provide affordable healthcare options to our members. We're happy that this new partnership will allow participating companies to gain control over this important aspect of their employee benefit plans."
BANN members now have access to robust medical provider program through RTMA and Saint Mary's that includes a network of over 60 providers and access to 14 locations in Reno-Sparks. The diverse provider network will give members new options when choosing a primary care physician.
"We have continued to look for new ways to enhance the benefit offerings available to local businesses," said Mike Ginder, CEO of RTMA. "Improving access to care is a critical component to ensuring long term health management and BANN members can now take advantage of a local network of primary care physicians prominent in our community."
In addition to accessing a new network, BANN employers will directly benefit from population and chronic disease management tools that will align with reducing health care costs and the impact that can have on a local business. Included in the tools is a chronic disease management report that will identify health care utilization and empower the employer to support their staff in making cost-effective health care decisions while continuing to access high-quality providers. In a time when health care costs are closely evaluated these new tools will bring great benefit to employers within the BANN membership.
Members who meet qualifications for group health insurance can contact Dillon Insurance Services to learn more about their options by calling 775-829-2494.
