Your partner in health: A message from Joan Budden, President & CEO of Priority Health

Health insurance has been a main topic of conversation lately given the national debate about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its future. As a result, you may have concerns about the direction health care is going and the impact it will have on you and your family.

At Priority Health, we know that your concerns are real. Year after year, health care costs are increasing, mainly as a result of soaring drug costs, an aging population and the rapid development of new treatments, surgeries and therapies.

Priority Health is committed to helping you get the care you need at a price you can afford. That’s why our one-of-a-kind benefits and programs give you crucial information to help you manage your health and your health care dollars.

Our Cost Estimator tool is a great example of this work. We’ve been able to help thousands of our members learn more about their costs and care options, helping them save money and improve their satisfaction with their health outcomes.

We’ve received great feedback from our members and are adding even more services like allergy testing, annual office visits and physical therapy to the Cost Estimator. What’s more, we’ll be adding pharmacy cost information to the tool later this summer, giving you the power to manage your prescription drug costs at your fingertips.

We’ve also included in this issue of Health Journal cost savings-related articles including:

Thank you for choosing Priority Health to be a partner in your health. We want you to know we’re by your side each step of the way, helping you be your healthiest.

Warm regards,
