Attention, employers with wellness programs: this is bigger than broccoli.

The Validation Institute is doing a webinar describing an actual cure for employee surprise medical bills for emergency visits and admits. it features the leading experts in pricing and surprise billing, including the bestselling author of The Price We Pay, Dr. Marty Makary. Here is the invitation.
October 31st webinar featuring bestselling author Dr. Marty Makary: A “cure” for employees’ surprise medical bills
You think Halloween is scary? Try surprise medical bills. That’s the subject of this groundbreaking October 31st webinar (register here).
Surprise bills may or may not be the #1 source of workplace stress – but they are certainly the #1 avoidable source of workplace stress. 57% of Americans report receiving one on the last five years. If you have not received complaints from employees about them, or noticed wages being garnished by providers, that’s probably because your health benefit is so generous that you are paying these bills without realizing it…inflating your own costs unnecessarily.
And yet there is a “cure,” at least for surprise bills related to emergency visits and admissions. The Validation Institute and Health Rosetta have assembled what they call the “dream team” of experts in pricing and consent-to-treatment to show you – in a mere hour – how to put the kibosh on this scourge. Presenters include:
- New York Times-bestselling author Dr. Marty Makary, whose blockbuster healthcare exposé, The Price We Pay, has already changed some outrageous hospital billing practices, will describe what consent-to-treatment entails, and why your employees should never just sign the forms thrust in front of them
- Industry pricing gurus Marilyn Bartlett (who saved Montana tens of millions through payment reform) and Health Rosetta-accredited broker-of-the-year Dave Contorno will provide a quick lesson in how to avoid paying inflated charges generally
- Quizzify CEO and trade-bestselling author Al Lewis will then combine these experts’ insights into an elegant one-sentence sticker to add to an insurance card that caps charges and avoids overtreatment…while ensuring employees get the care they need.
Attendees will be able to begin solving the surprise medical bills problem within weeks or even days. If you combine Quizzify’s quizzes with the solution as described in the webinar, it will do to surprise medical bills for emergency care what garlic does to vampires.
