In Lynchburg and across the country, employers witness the costs of employee benefit plans go up year after year. Employees endure healthcare costs outflanking wages and inflation. One powerful cost containment solution is a High-Performance Network (HPN), an exclusive narrow group of premier healthcare providers to serve a defined patient population. An HPN serves as an alternate tier within a companys group health network to encourage employees to use specific proven providers with outstanding medical outcomes for certain treatments or procedures.

The Mid-State Group assembled one of Virginia’s first High-Performance Network (HPN) to benefit local employees and employers. This streamlined healthcare superhighway provides companies with fully insured, self-insured and captive benefit plans a fast-track exit ramp from conventional managed care networks. The Mid-State HPN also offers employees directly, affordable access to leading evidence-based providers for back surgery, physical rehabilitation, radiology, and urgent care.

Employees work hard to provide for their families and they deserve the very best in healthcare when an injury or illness arises, said John Basten. We built the HPN so our client’s employees can have quick, easy access to excellent quality local and national medical providers such as Sonospine to ensure employees can recover quickly to enjoy all that life has to offer.

A key cost containment target is reducing group health and workers compensation costs, Basten added. Group health benefits and workers comp, in actuality, are two sides of the same coin. Whether an employee gets sick or hurts on or off work, a medical issue must be addressed regardless of whether the claim impacts the benefits or workers comp plans.

Mid-State also utilizes Value-Based Insurance Design (V-BID) aims to increase health care quality and decrease costs by using financial incentives within strategic plan design to promote cost-efficient healthcare services and consumer choices.

Headquartered in Lynchburg since 1964, The Mid-State Group navigates innovative growth strategies for businesses, organizations, families, and individuals. The Mid-State Group is a family-owned, independent umbrella of service companies including Mid-State Insurance; Mid-State HR; Mid-State Safety, and Mid-State Wellness, along with the educational Mid-State Academy.
