Higher Quality Healthcare At A Lower Cost: What Every Benefits Advisor Needs To Know

Clients and prospects count on you for guidance when selecting benefit plans for their organizations. And for good reason. As a benefits advisor, you are uniquely positioned to offer your clients the best possible healthcare products at the best possible price. But, you already knew that.

What you might not know is that you could potentially deliver even better rates from some of the same industry-leading companies your clients and prospects already use. How would you like to be the bearer of that news? Here’s how to make it happen:


Health Action Council is a member-driven not-for-profit organization with more than two million unique covered individuals in every state in the country. This gives us extraordinary group purchasing power with UnitedHealthcare and pharmacy benefit management (PBM) providers, CVS/caremark and OptumRx.

Thanks to our network of more than 200 employer members, your clients and prospects can take advantage of lower benefits costs and reduced administrative expenses, all backed by performance guarantees and dedicated service teams. Best of all, getting started requires no obligation. Simply ask for a quote.

PBM Quotes: Contact Kevin Gregory, Director of Business Solutions, for information regarding CVS/caremark or OptumRx pricing.

Healthcare Quotes: Ask your UnitedHealthcare (or UMR) sales representative for a Health Action Council proposal.


Our mission is not limited to group purchasing. Rather, our mission is to create healthier communities where businesses thrive. Group purchasing is just one facet of our multi-faceted approach that connects key stakeholders – like you and your clients – with ongoing education initiatives, health improvement programs and decision support tools.

For example, we advise our members to use a hospital rating tool called the Leap Frog Hospital Safety Score before deciding on a healthcare provider. As a result, we have helped members save more than $5 million on inpatient hospital stays because they were able to identify and choose higher rated hospitals. Regardless of which health carrier your clients use, you can help them do the same thing. Just make sure to tell them about Leap Frog.


For additional information, or to schedule a meeting, please contact Kevin Gregory at 216.269.3127. Or, email [email protected].
