Today’s healthcare market is changing rapidly. If you are facing challenges, a group purchasing consortium may offer an alternative solution. The healthcare consortium is owned by its 32 members with Gunn-Mowery providing sales expertise, actuarial, compliance and administrative support. If you qualify, the Upside allows you to enjoy savings, transparency, security, stability and control with your health insurance needs.
Control and Direction. This self-funded consortium approach allows us to direct and control the underwriting process, and take a more proactive approach to managing the renewal process. Rather than waiting for the carrier to price the renewal, our consultants design the renewal based on data we have from the expiring plan year. Having claims data, high cost claimant reports and monthly financial statements strategically positions Genesis to present our case to the market with pricing we generate.
Plan Design Flexibility. Unlike many programs, Genesis allows for individual plan design with each member. In many cases, we even use the member’s same healthcare provider, and simply change the funding mechanism from a fully insured plan to an administrative services only contract (ASO). This makes the transaction totally seamless to the employee.
Efficient Use of the Dollar. We redirect how the dollar is spent and often see a significant reduction in the pure administrative expense. By breaking down the risk layers and managing each members risk tolerance, programs are designed to specifically address the personality of each member firm.
Wellness and Disease Management. Although critically important, few employers ever achieve real cost savings or understand how exactly the programs affect their employees. With access to specific claims data, we can tailor programs that will have a positive impact on the health and wellness of each employee. Overall company health has the potential to produce a significant financial windfall for both our member firms and their employees.
Transparency. A first for many member companies is the full disclosure of all costs that make up the health care dollar! No more second guessing how premiums are developed and disbursed. We are compliant with ever changing laws, and have full ERISA counsel and actuarial support working for Genesis at all times. The consortium is governed by the members and guided by the expertise of Gunn-Mowery.
Protection. With lower than anticipated claims in any given year, you build up a fund that can be used to mitigate future rate increases. This provides protection against wild upward swings in rates and costs, and gives us peace of mind that we will be less likely to have huge cost increases.

Businesses are able to better negotiate administrative services and reinsurance as effectively as that of a larger, single employer. Facts about... Read More
