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.
