Is There a CURE for Employees’ Surprise Medical Bills?


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”

Controlling Health Care Costs and Improving Outcomes with CHVP

Part of’s Global HR Tech Virtual Symposium – A Monday Innovations Special Event

Everyone wants to save money on health care and improve employees’ lives, but the health care industry is nuanced, overly complex, and plagued by too many too-good-to-be-true marketing claims.  Many HR professionals, even those with years of experience, don’t know where to start to make meaningful change. Knowing the key areas to tackle first, as well as the right questions to ask to more effectively select and manage your health care vendors or to work more productively with your benefits advisors can make a dramatic difference in health care spend and quality.

This webcast is part of’s Global HR Tech Virtual Symposium and provides an overview of Validation Institute’s Certified Health Value Professional (CHVP) designation and training program, which equips benefits and HR professionals with the tools and knowledge they need to more effectively manage their health benefits plans and related costs, as well as employee outcomes.
