    "Dialysis Cost Containment"

    Sherri Tetachuk, Renalogic 

    Reducing the cost of dialysis is not as simple as choosing a service or vendor. Provider threats and even litigation are becoming more commonplace. Having the strongest and most defensible administrative record of reimbursement is required and frankly the only solution to not paying more on dialysis claims than necessary.  We will cover current litigation's surrounding the dialysis cost containment market, especially in the Northwest.  In addition, how early identification of Chronic Kidney Disease can help your plans save money, improve lives, and eliminate dialysis all together. 

    • Chronic Kidney Disease – What is it? What are some of the main causes? Is kidney failure imminent?
    • Managing comorbid diseases that lead to kidney failure
    • What are the financial impacts of chronic kidney disease
    • What is going on in the Northwest and Nationally in the dysfunctional market of dialysis
    • How can you protect your plan from litigation from the dialysis providers

    End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) – Kidney Failure.  What are the programs available to your members who are on dialysis due to ESRD 

    "Reinventing Treatment for Heavy Drinking"

    Lauren Wolfe, PsyD Co-Founder and Chief Clinical Officer, Annum

    Deborah Dexter Senior Vice President, Business Development, Annum

    Heavy drinking is the most pervasively acknowledged, untreated epidemic in America. 

    Co-founded by proven leaders in health care, technology and alcohol treatment, Annum transforms the treatment experience while eliminating profound barriers to care — high cost, personal and professional disruption, and stigma. By working with us, more people will seek help, stick to their individual treatment plan and establish safer drinking habits. To make treatment available to as many people as possible, we partner with major employers and health plans who want to take proactive steps to cultivate a happier, healthier and more motivated workforce.

    • Issues of heavy drinking - scope of problem, why it goes untreated, financial impact to economy & employers.
      • One in four adults binge drink
      • Higher income is correlated with more hazardous drinking behavior
      • Three out of four binge drinkers are employed
      • High risk drinking results in a $81.5 billion loss to workplace productive each year
      • 90% of heavy drinkers never receive help
    • A comprehensive and integrated approach to treatment
      • Therapist – weekly sessions
      • Physician video visit – to prescribe medication
      • Coaching – text based support
      • Social support – secure and online
