Collective Health cuts healthcare cost trend by 50% for studied customers


Better employee healthcare at a lower cost is possible. 

In fact, a recent independent, third-party study proved that better employee healthcare at a lower cost is not only possible, but the reality for the Collective Health customers they studied. The Collective Health Cost Impact Study, conducted by global professional services firm Aon, found that our integrated health benefits solution cut the cost trend of healthcare benefits for included employers by 50% over a five-year period.

Researchers compared the medical and pharmacy costs of two employer groups who have used Collective Health since 2017 to a matched control group. They also looked at how Collective Health members were using digital tools like My Collective™, plus real-time support from Member Advocates and the Care Navigation™ team, to engage with their health benefits. 

Here are the key findings:

Collective Health members in the study had lower overall healthcare costs than their counterparts in the control group.

Although not part of the study, we estimate that in aggregate, the Collective Health solution helped those customers save approximately $11 million over the time period studied. 

The study revealed that members who used Collective Health had high engagement with care advocacy and guidance, fewer trips to the emergency room, and increased use of preventative care. All of these factors likely drove meaningful savings for our customers when it came to healthcare costs.

The study based these findings on its Cost Efficiency Measurement (CEM) methodology, which precisely matches members using Collective Health to those in a control group according to geography, age, gender, and chronic conditions. This methodology minimized the impact of common challenges when measuring the outcomes of benefits programs (including the impact of network discounts and utilization changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and allowed researchers to identify the following results: 

Members on the Collective Health platform engaged with their benefits at high rates and engagement increased with clinical complexity.

Our mission at Collective Health has always been centered around improving the member experience. Our My Collective™ platform is designed to give members everything they need to engage in their healthcare journey, from medical, dental, vision and pharmacy, to supplemental benefits and point solutions, all in one place. 

The Collective Health Cost Impact study measured engagement in three ways: Member Advocate inquiries, participation in our Care Navigation program, and digital engagement, which occurs when a member logs into the My Collective™ app or web experience.

Here are the key findings from the comparison of studied Collective Health members to industry benchmarks:
