Consumer-directed health care accounts have balanced on a fine line between health and finance since their inception, often divided by where and how the accounts are administered. To close the loop, it is important for health insurance providers to recognize how interdependent the health and wealth connection has become, and how creating a seamless health-wealth experience is crucial for improved and long-lasting health outcomes.

Through a series of surveys and user focus groups aimed at individuals across all spectrums of healthcare management, this webinar will dive into the data to showcase how health insurance providers can integrate the health & wealth conversation into a necessary component of their health care offerings. Armed with stats to support these claims, participants will walk away with clear direction on how to incorporate CDH accounts into their product offering to achieve desired KPIs.

Attendees will learn:

  • Connect the dots between health care expenses and health care outcomes
  • Incorporate innovative member-centric solutions to further engage and educate
  • Shape messages that will best resonate with members based on their life stages
