Prescription Benefit Management (PBM)

Prescription Benefit Management (PBM)

Prescription drug costs can account for as much as 25% of total plan expenditures for self-funded programs. Through our partnership with National Cooperative ℞, ECOH Members have access to enhanced PBM services delivered through CVS CareMark. Like ECOH, National Cooperative ℞ is member-owned, delivering specialized expertise to employers seeking to control health benefit costs. For more than 20 years National Cooperative has been focused on delivering all employers access to PBM programs usually available only to the largest of employer groups.


Workers Compensation Programs

Workers Compensation Programs

ECOH’s strategic partner for Workers Comp has more than 25 years of experience in the occupational health PPO arena. With recent changes to Illinois legislation related to worker comp issues, HFN has created multiple options for employers looking for more control over related costs. HFN was the first license Preferred Provider Program (PPP) in Illinois and delivers significant savings beyond the standard state fee schedule.


Dialysis Cost Containment

Dialysis Cost Containment

For enrollees with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) few health conditions are as life-threatening and life-altering for plan enrollees. Self-funded plans are typically responsible for the first 33 months of treatment. For employers, costs related to dialysis treatments can be among the highest and least manageable incurred in a self-funded benefit program. ECOH has partnered with Specialty Care Management to relieve employers of some of the financial burden and to ensure enrollees have access to their current providers.


HRA Administration

HRA Administration

At ECOH, we believe that employers AND employees should take direct control of the costs related to healthcare benefits. In this day and age of “shrinking” health benefits and “out-of-control” costs, HRA’s can be a rational means of maintaining rich and desirable benefits. Whether your business is a traditionally self-funded program, a partially self-funded program, or a fully-insured plan, Health Reimbursement Accounts can help employers reward employees for positive lifestyle behaviors.
