Is There a CURE for Employees’ Surprise Medical Bills?

FREE WEBINAR – Watch the Recording Now

57% of Americans have received a surprise medical bill in the last five years. For those who haven’t received one, it’s likely that their employer is picking up the tab (often times without even realizing it). Surprise medical bills stress employees out and could be inflating employer health care costs unnecessarily. It’s a lose-lose situation for everyone – except the provider.

Our panel of pricing and consent-to-treatment experts explain what you can do to cure surprise billing for emergency visits and admissions.

Featured Panelists:

  • Marty Makary, New York Times bestselling author of “The Price We Pay”
  • Marilyn Bartlett, #13 on Fortune’s 2019 list of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders
  • David Contorno (E Powered Benefits), 2019 Health Value Award winner
  • Al Lewis (Quizzify), trade-bestselling author of “Cracking Health Costs”

Our Mission

We believe transparency can transform healthcare purchasing to improve health outcomes and lower costs. Validation Institute advocates for a results-based, outcome-driven market with a three-pronged approach: validating vendor performance, educating the buyers of healthcare, and creating an exclusive community where the two can connect.

About Us

Validation Institute is an independent, third-party resource for healthcare purchasers and vendors and benefits advisors. Our focus is on transparency across the healthcare market as a way to reduce healthcare costs and improve outcomes. We move this forward by assuring that a vendor’s performance claims will materialize in practice, that healthcare buyers are educated on key health value and purchasing topics, and that the two sides have an easier time connecting.
