Allen Pease, Senior Vice President of Sales at ConnectYourCare, discussed the future of consumer directed healthcare for the IHC’s HealthCare Consumerism Radio show on Friday, April 19, 2013. Pease, a recognized industry veteran in the convergence of healthcare and financial services, was interviewed by CEO and Founder of The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism (IHC), Doug Field and Editorial Chairman, Ron Bachman.
ConnectYourCare is one of the nation’s leading providers of consumer-directed healthcare (CDH) account solutions. The IHC’s broadcasts focus on the latest trends and best practices in health care consumerism and connects listeners with health care industry thought leaders, brokers, advisors, third party administrators, HR and benefit managers and regional health plan providers.
Pease discussed the complexity of today’s market and how industry demands healthcare accounts that are paired with an excellent consumer experience, including effective technology, user-friendly tools, and exceptional service.
“ConnectYourCare’s solution includes communications materials that detail how and why to use accounts, easy to access to funds, a multi-account payment card and web-based and mobile applications,” said Pease. “The insurance component is the biggest, most expensive part of benefits and we make this something an employer doesn’t have to worry about.”
“The healthcare landscape will be very different in the future, especially with the new exchanges,” explained Pease. “There will be a growing need for account-based solutions so that health plans, financial institutions, employers and consumers can take advantage of tax-favored accounts as costs rise.”
