Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Benefit Brokerage Services’ Silicon Valley Health Plans (SVHP) announces its new cost-cutting health plan which offers a first of its kind state-of-the-art Prevention & Wellness program. Employers using both the Health Plan and the Prevention Program are rewarded with maximum cost savings. This innovative new plan is rich with benefits while emphasizing prevention; yet it can costs less than comparable group health insurance plans. It’s designed to save money for groups of 25 to 1,000 employees.
Employers actively participate in the design of their benefit plans, promoting healthy lifestyles and meeting the needs of employees. “Employers never recoup premiums from traditional health plans when claims are low,” said Silicon Valley Health Plans Director Clifford Der. “The value of this plan is that the employer only pays for actual expenses. There is no overpaying to insurance carriers.”
Silicon Valley Health Plans includes preventive care features through a state-of-art comprehensive prevention and wellness company for Employers with 175 employees or more. Typical unheard of participation levels from employees and spouses are over 85%. The program’s hi-tech / hi-touch approach includes biometric health screenings, health risk appraisals, team weight challenges, and participation in one of six key programs targeting the most costly of preventable diseases. A free-standing Kiosk is placed in the workplace where it offers convenient regular uploading of weight, biometric information, pedometer readings, blood pressure readings and a Web-based computer/monitor to record other data. Calls from health counselors encourage maximum participation and adherence in the program.
Benefit Brokerage Services is the developer and marketing company for the new plan. The principal of Benefit Brokerage Services, Clifford Der, has over 38 years of experience in the Employee Benefit arena. Ten years ago his creativity also included the creation of the first stand-alone supplemental insurance plan to just cover Acupuncture. Each of the component parts of Silicon Valley Health Plans were carefully selected from leaders in the areas of administration, PPO networks, prescription drug management, imaging protocol, as well as prevention and wellness.
