Chicago, IL, September 17, 2015– Relevant Healthcare, a national healthcare cost containment company, was recently nominated and added to the NASHCO Preferred Vendor Program as a valuable savings tool for the state health cooperatives across the country, and their combined membership that now exceeds 1 million people. Over the past 10 months, Relevant has been working very closely with one of the NASHCO member CO-OPs where it has been successful in saving more than $1.5 million dollars on only a handful of claims for dialysis treatment - an area where all of the cooperatives are experiencing the same challenges. As a result of that success and global interest, as well as the many other areas in which Relevant can save significant healthcare dollars, Relevant was nominated to participate in this program.
“We are extremely excited about this opportunity. We have had the desire for some time to help the state CO-OPs in any way that we can, and are grateful to have been given the chance to prove our ability to do just that. We look forward to establishing a long term relationship with NASHCO and in working with each CO-OP to develop valuable programs that help them to grow and remain a successful component of our healthcare system.” – Scott Fuqua, President
Relevant’s robust offering of savings solutions will provide NASHCO’s membership with a valuable tool and resource. Combining the savings opportunity of all of its products, and depending on the size of the individual CO-OP, Relevant has estimates of savings that reach into the range of $50,000,000+ per year. With most products carrying a Contingency Model (no savings, no fees) and its National Radiology Network which involves no fees what-so-ever, Relevant is also able to offer NASHCO risk-free solutions that also include complimentary savings analysis and an extremely measurable ROI.
“We are proud to welcome Relevant Healthcare to our Preferred Vendor Program. Cost containment is a key goal for CO-OPs and all insurers, and Relevant Healthcare has the tools and resources to help our member CO-OPs achieve significant cost savings. We look forward to working with Relevant Healthcare in the coming months and years, and encourage CO-OPs to explore their range of services”. Kelly Crowe, President of NASHCO
