Without the proper tools, employees may not be aware of their options when choosing a provider or do the necessary homework to select the best one. Why is this such a problem? Medical procedures can vary by 500% or more in cost, even when they are offered through the same network. This lack of cost transparency can lead to some out-of-control care expenses for a company’s health plan!
To avoid this issue, Cypress offers a program that assists employees in the decision-making process by conveniently connecting them with details on health care providers across the country.
