The year 2023 witnessed a surge in healthcare renewal costs, with industry trends indicating an average increase of 7%.
As organizations grappled with the financial implications, our team at TrueNorth played a pivotal role in assisting numerous clients in mitigating these challenges. This article explores the strategies we employed to help organizations maintain stability during renewal season, achieving flat or minimal increases. By delving into the realms of predictive analytics, healthcare literacy, and thoughtful plan design modifications, we empowered our clients to navigate the renewal season successfully.

To assist our clients in surviving the renewal season, we developed a multifaceted strategy that focused on three key pillars:


Predictive Analytics:

Leveraging the power of predictive analytics, we helped organizations gain insights into future healthcare trends. By analyzing historical data and identifying patterns, we empowered our clients to make informed decisions, anticipate cost fluctuations, and proactively adjust their healthcare strategies.

Healthcare Literacy & Advocacy:

Recognizing the pivotal role of employees in the healthcare decision-making process, we emphasized improving healthcare literacy and advocacy. Through targeted educational initiatives, we equipped employees with the knowledge needed to make informed choices, fostering a sense of empowerment in navigating their healthcare options.

Health Plan Design Modifications:

Understanding that a one-size-fits-all approach does not suffice, we collaborated with clients to tailor health plan designs. By customizing plans to align with organizational needs and employee demographics, we were able to optimize coverage while minimizing cost implications.

Our strategies yielded significant results for our clients. Many experienced either flat or minimal increases in their healthcare renewal costs, supporting financial stability and predictability in an otherwise uncertain landscape.

As organizations prepare for future renewal seasons, the importance of a proactive and strategic approach cannot be overstated. By incorporating predictive analytics, improving healthcare literacy and advocacy, and modifying health plan designs, organizations can navigate the storm of rising healthcare renewal costs successfully. TrueNorth remains committed to partnering with organizations to discuss and implement effective healthcare strategies, supporting a resilient and cost-effective future.
