It’s That Time Again…

The PDA Management Services Organization (MSO) is a component of an active healthcare ecosystem. PDA members’ interactions in this environment have primarily been focused on credentialing and managed care services. But, under the Flagship Physician Network banner, there is much more going on.

For example, the Flagship population management team is working with a demonstration model to identify, treat, and impact the negatives of chronic disease and the concerns of behavioral issues in the workplace. The client operates a sophisticated manufacturing business that faces the challenging international competition. Worker efficiency and productivity is very important to survive, especially in the world market. The self-funded benefit plan in place with our client has a double-digit premium savings due to the strategic use of pre-new year ancillary services to support on-going population management objectives. That’s truly exciting stuff! And, the physicians are paid extremely well for their medical care, which has been an ongoing commitment of ours from the beginning, making members more money without additional hassle or work.

The ecosystem is also a creative leader in the broader healthcare and insurance scene. Next week, we will be training with the Scott & White product managers. We earned the privilege of being invited to this kick-off session. We will have three Texas Department of Insurance-licensed agents representing you and the MSO that manages PDA.

Please keep in mind that our ongoing primary goal is to assist your office’s benefit & property and casualty insurance needs. This strategy is owned by physicians, managers, and benefit consultants who are committed to PDA. Any net income from providing benefits service to PDA practitioners is reinvested in tools to enhance member service, keeping membership costs in check, and to stimulate IPA growth. As healthcare professionals, we bring a relevant understanding to serving your personal insurance needs for health, life, and long-term care. We are currently researching the area of wealth management, which will be a major area of importance to the PDA practitioner nation.

Please call 972-484-5888 for a strong, honest response to your benefit needs.

Post Script: We are now being enrolled into the Scott & White Health Plan sales team. The previously mentioned introduction meeting was efficient, understandable, and the product is proven. This may be the most ”integrated” healthcare delivery system in our market. The Scott & White system has joined the Baylor System to create an impressive integrated delivery system. This is the same program that has successfully marched through Temple, Killeen, Houston, College Station, Georgetown, Waco, Waxahachie, and now is at the gates of DFW.
