Upcoming Webinar: How to Cut Prescription Costs with Mail Order Pharmacy

Register for our webinar, April 30 at 11:00 am CST: How to Cut Prescription Costs with Mail Order Pharmacy

Nearly 3 in 5 American adults take at least one prescription drug, and the cost of medications show no sign of dropping with another 3.8% increase expected in 2020. If that’s not frustrating enough, add time in line to pick up prescriptions, delays from forgetting to request a refill, and the even greater costs for managing a chronic illness. Mail order pharmacies help cut the high costs of prescriptions with the added convenience of online ordering and home delivery.

“It’s all about convenience. You don’t have to leave home or wait in long lines. Plus, it’s easy to get all your medication refilled and shipped at one time and is usually more affordable,” says Mohamed Jalloh, a pharmacist and the official spokesman for the American Pharmacists Association.

New Benefits recently added a mail order option to our retail pharmacy benefit, giving members an additional resource to save big on prescriptions. Mail order pharmacy is ideal for patients who have gout, diabetes, arthritis, or other diseases requiring long-term maintenance medications. With an auto-refill service, medication reminders, and free standard shipping, mail order pharmacy helps members conveniently manage their health at a more affordable rate.

To celebrate New Benefits’ efforts to double down on prescription savings opportunities, we’re hosting a webinar with our mail order pharmacy vendor, Rx Valet. Join Amanda Franklin, New Benefits EVP Operations, and Greg Santulli, CEO and Co-Founder of Rx Valet, on April 30 at 11:00 am Central Time for our webinar: How to Cut Prescription Costs with Mail Order Pharmacy. You’ll learn how our mail order solution provides prescription discounts, when it’s best to use the service, and how simple it is for members to order and save.

Upcoming Webinar – Compass: Healthcare Navigation Redefined

Learn more about our healthcare navigation and price transparency benefits through Compass in our upcoming webinar, Compass: Healthcare Navigation Redefined, taking place October 30 at 2pm CST.

Healthcare is complicated. In an index comparing the simplicity of 25 industries, health insurance ranks second to last. This likely doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has attempted to navigate their health benefits on their own. And when faced with an unfamiliar system of network providers, CPT codes, and claims, consumers are not equipped to make smarter healthcare choices.

On top of the complications, healthcare is also expensive. People often overpay for services, with in-network healthcare prices varying by 300% or more, and 30% of medical bills being incorrect.

New Benefits has recently added Compass to our suite of benefits, and we’re excited to now share it with you! Compass eliminates the healthcare hassle by advocating on behalf of the consumer, ensuring they have the appropriate knowledge and tools to get the care they need at a price they can afford. A team of highly dedicated, extensively trained Health Pros help members understand their health insurance, review medical bills, compare providers, schedule appointments, and more.

Join our webinar with Madelon Parker, Client Success Senior Analyst at Compass, to learn more about how Compass helps members untangle the healthcare puzzle, saving them time and money.

Upcoming Webinar: The 411 on Behavioral Health Solutions

New Benefits invites you to join our webinar with MeMD, The 411 on Behavioral Health Solutions, on Thursday, October 4, at 11 am Central Time.

Mental health has been stigmatized as an issue people should keep to themselves, but if you check the latest headlines in your news feed, you’ll start to see a different attitude towards the subject. People are beginning to recognize the significance of poor mental health – how many people are affected, the detriment to physical health, and its impact on the workplace.

Employers are increasingly taking notice of the connection between poor mental health and productivity. Employees with poor mental health are less productive, miss more days of work, and have lower morale than their coworkers. These combined repercussions cost employers up to $105 billion each year.

With this large of an impact, the workplace has a responsibility to address employee mental health. To avoid added healthcare costs and lost productivity, employers can offer behavioral health counseling through telemedicine. Telebehavioral health enables employees to seek the treatment they need at their convenience, and from the privacy and comfort of home.

MeMD, one of the leading providers in telehealth, understood the growing need to address mental health more effectively and added behavioral health to their roster of services. “Providing behavioral health benefits via teletherapy allows employers to prioritize employees’ mental health in a cost-effective way, while also addressing access issues and improving confidentiality for employees who seek care,” said Kevin Wallquist, EVP of National Accounts and Health Plans for MeMD.

In our webinar, The 411 on Behavioral Health Solutions, MeMD’s Kevin Wallquist and Ali Cassidy (Senior Account Manager) present their solution for improving mental health at work. We’d love to have you join us! Please save your seat by registering through this link.
