Why is it important to spread the word about Find a Doctor to your workforce?
Our member-employers were integral to the first contest’s success. That seems fitting, since as an employer, you win when your employees use Find a Doctor to find in-network health care services while viewing information about the cost and quality of health care. It’s a great way to empower your employees to make better health care choices.
Your employees win when they avoid out-of-network charges; learn that the cost of office visits, tests and procedures can sometimes vary by a big amount; and view quality and patient safety ratings for selected health care services.
And sometimes, they win a prize, too.
How We Make It Easy to Hold Your Own Find a Doctor Contest
To help everybody win, you can hold a Find a Doctor contest – for just your workforce. We’ve got all the materials ready for you – contact me, Mike Roche, member services manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.223.4139 x6645 and we’ll get you started.
Hold your own workplace Find a Doctor campaign and we’ll:
- Give you a $50 gift card to use as a grand prize. Employers are welcome to add their own prizes to sweeten the deal. We can help you randomly select the winners, too.
- Hold a Find a Doctor presentation for your employees.
- Send a postcard or email customized with your company’s logo to your employees.
- Provide access to a new contest toolkit filled with printable posters, flyers and more to promote your Find a Doctor contest.
- Provide a list of all registered users that logged into their account or created an account during the duration of the contest. We will then use our randomized generator tool to select a winner and
notify the employer.*
You should introduce your contest to employees no later than March 18, 2016. All employer contests will conclude on April 30, 2016, when the names of winners will be randomly selected. Participation is limited to employees and their family members enrolled in a health plan that uses The Alliance network to access care.
Know the Cost. Compare the Quality. Skip the Surprises.
All the activity is worth it when you remember that The Alliance’s Find a Doctor transparency tool is a one-of-a-kind directory that leads the way in sharing cost and quality information. Register or log in to your Find a Doctor account for full access to the site, including:
- Cost information. Cost can vary widely in health care. Sometimes a short drive can save thousands of dollars for consumers and their health plans. Find a Doctor delivers cost information on over 50 common health care charges for office visits, tests and procedures. Cost estimates are calculated from Alliance claims data and are updated weekly.
- Quality in health care. Find a Doctor includes Leapfrog Hospital Safety Scores and also quality ratings for the following specialties:
- Birthing care (based on deliveries by cesarean section and obstetrical trauma)
- Internal medicine, pediatrics and family medicine (based on how well doctors at that location make good use of your health care dollars and provide recommended care for your health issues at the right time)
- Doctor information. See doctor photos, location information and more about the providers that are a part of The Alliance network.
- Simple ways to show complex data. Compare the out-of-pocket costs of up to three different facilities with our cost calculator.
