In 2019, MedBen reference-based pricing (RBP) plans performed 24.7% better than traditional PPO plans.

Many MedBen clients blend their RBP plan with direct-to-employer contracts, which promotes the use of quality care through local facilities. In exchange for encouraging members to visit contracted facilities, providers bill the plan at mutually agreed-upon rates. This method also eliminates the possibility of patients getting balance-billed.

RBP can also be integrated on a benefits-specific basis. For example, when utilizing RBP language for dialysis treatments versus traditional PPO language, a plan can save up to $250,000 a year on one individual’s dialysis claims.
