MORE Benefits for Employers

Cost Containment

We deliver our services to businesses as MORE Benefits. This can be offered to your employees either as an employer-provided supplemental benefit, or as an employee-paid voluntary benefit.

As well as increasing the quality of healthcare delivered to your employees, we also decrease the cost of healthcare to your business, by minimizing unnecessary overtreatment and by reducing waste due to the treatment of misdiagnosed conditions.
Poor quality healthcare
Costs an employer an estimated additional $1,900 to $2,250 per covered employee per year.
MBGH, “Reducing the Costs of Poor-Quality Health Care” (2003)
Lost productivity due to health problems
Costs $3.8M per 10,000 employees each year, in addition to any associated medical costs.
Population Health Management, “Measuring Health-Related Productivity Loss” (2011)
Waste in healthcare
9.7%due to overtreatment.
7.6%due to lack of best practices and poor execution.
12.2%due to fraud & abuse.
JAMA, "Eliminating Waste in US Health Care" (2012)

For Employees who Travel

As an optional add-on we also offer a Secure Medical Record service. This is a more comprehensive version of the Personal Health Record and can be especially valuable for employees who travel. When this service is activated we reach out and collect the employee’s complete medical history from their General Practitioner, encrypt it and then securely store it online. When needed it can be accessed by the employee from anywhere in the world. As part of this service we update the record annually, or any time a member requests a diagnosis service.
MORE Benefits for Brokers

Approximately 5% of the population is responsible for half the total healthcare costs. (“Medical Expenditure Panel Survey,” Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 2010). Much of this is due to the costs of treating serious illness. By offering MORE Benefits as an option to your clients you are ensuring that these employers are offering the very best healthcare to their employees, while also ensuring that they are containing costs due to misdiagnosis, mistreatment and overtreatment.

This patient-centered approach to serious illness care integrates with any healthcare network and does not require employees to answer health related questions, pay additional co-pays, or worry about deductibles. It can also help with concerns regarding narrowing healthcare networks, by ensuring that employees have access to a broad group of expert specialists from highly regarded institutions at the precise moment when they are needed most.

Case Study
Best practice leads to change of approach
Prior to MORE Health
  • Sue had suffered from epilepsy for many years.
  • Recently her seizures had become more frequent, so she consulted with a neurologist recommended by her doctor, who performed a myriad of tests and concluded that the best approach was Gamma Knife surgery.
  • Sue was concerned about the health effects of Gamma Knife surgery, in which beams of gamma radiation are used to treat brain lesions.
Referred to MORE Health
  • Sue contacted MORE Health who assigned her case to Dr. Robert Knowlton, who specializes in diagnosing complex cases of epilepsy.
  • MORE Health collected Sue’s medical records, including her CT Scans and MRIs, and made those available for Dr. Knowlton, who concluded that Gamma Knife surgery would be a critical mistake for Sue’s type of epilepsy and would pose significant health risks without any corresponding benefits. Instead, Sue needed to undergo further observation to determine the appropriate medication for her epilepsy.
  • Since beginning her new medication Sue has not experienced a seizure.
The average 12 months cost of Gamma Knife surgery ranges from $23,069 to $46,293.
