platform for employers designed to drive down the cost of healthcare while

self-funded employer markets. MyMedicalShopper provides a comprehensive
platform for employers who want to take control of their healthcare costs and
empower their employees with a tool that makes shopping for medical care as
easy as a Google search.
MyMedicalRewards™ provides a dynamic HRA or HSA funding

employer dollars. It combines reference-pricing models with the MyMedicalShopper
shopping experience to reward employees for choosing low-cost, high-quality
medical care, thus reducing medical claims.
MyMedicalShopper’s Employer Dashboard provides CEOs, CFOs,
and HR leadership with direct visibility into their group’s claims experience,
engagement with MMS programs, and realization of savings. MyMedicalMetrics™ is an enhanced feature of this dashboard—a robust
claims analytics package that shows employers exactly how their employees are

overall claims experience for the group. Employers can use this new information
to team up with their employees, identify specific savings opportunities, and
build targeted campaigns that drive meaningful behavior change and claims
reduction for their groups.
ClaimsFlow automates much of the administrative burden and error-prone human
processes involved in adjudicating employee reimbursements for CDH accounts.
Participants can leverage connections to more than 100 insurance carrier and
health plan member portals to facilitate rapid adjudication of claim
reimbursements and automatic substantiation of debit card transactions.
