IHC University Course on Health Care Consumerism

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 • 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

This pre-certification course provides an inclusive and robust approach to employee engagement, behavioral change, human capital, health literacy, and personalized health care – areas that separate health care consumerism from Consumer-Driven Health Care (CDHC) and account based plans. It prepares you to become Certified in HealthCare Consumerism (CHCC), with an CHCC Certification Exam offered online afterward.

Industry expert and retired lead national health care consumerism Principal for PricewaterhouseCoopers Ron Bachman will guide you through an exclusive 200-page IHC University workbook with step-by-step instructions on evaluating your health plans and move them to effective benefit designs that engage members in making smart health care decisions. The interactive personalized workbook and exercises provide the principles, strategies, and implementation options unique to your company, including topics from wellness to decision support tools. You will also learn about:

  • Private & public exchanges explanation/discussion
  • Defined contribution models
  • Issues related to ACA implementation through 2018
  • Other relevant advice for establishing an effective health care consumerism strategy
