Healthcare's Final Frontier: Navigating the Wild West of RBP with Industry Renegades

Omar Arif of ClaimDOC & Scott Schnaidt of HST on All Things RBP

Ever imagine healthcare could feel like the Wild West? Welcome to the untamed lands of Reference-Based Pricing (RBP), the sizzling frontier where a select few employers unleash radical savings while giving the traditional PPO system a stiff arm.

Unveil a world where only 3-4% of employers dare to tread, but where jaw-dropping 30-40% savings rain like gold and concierge-level service is the sheriff in town.

Curious about RBP's magic? This isn't just healthcare. It's "Health-FAIR!" Here, employers "price-match" medical costs against benchmark prices, slicing their claims in half compared to big insurers.

Projections say employer healthcare costs will shoot up another 7-9% in 2024. Yet Medicare Part D Premiums are projected to decrease by 1.8%. All major insurers participate in both markets. The lesson? Employers with private insurance are subsidizing Medicare. But hold your horses. With RBP, brace yourself for a 0-2% trend that turns the tables on traditional care.

Jump into this roller-coaster ride of a podcast with your guide through this maze, joined by two titans of the trade—Omar Arif of ClaimDOC & Scott Schnaidt of HST. They've both cracked the code, each in their unique ways, and the results? Nothing short of spellbinding.
