Medical Cost Containment

4 Questions to ask your TPA about Medical Cost Containment

  • What % savings are you achieving, excluding duplicates?
  • Is an effective professional review element driving the process?
  • How are you charged for fee schedule, professional review, and PPO savings?
  • How is the payment for medical cost containment processed?

Many TPAs charge review to the claim file based on a percent of savings structure. The actual fee is masked and, therefore, not measurable on a return on investment basis*. This strategy is advantageous to the TPA because traditional percent of savings structures are very expensive. Therefore, it is not a statistic most TPAs want to highlight to their clients.
