Has your company tried, over and over again, to solve ever increasing health care costs? “Yes, of course we have, but nothing seems to work!” is a common answer. “We bid out our employee health insurance every year through multiple brokers, we reduce benefits to offset rate increases, and we even light a candle 24 hours before year-end renewal!”
At the cornerstone of our Health Rosetta, the blueprint for high-performing health plans, is Direct Primary Care - a direct-to-patient care model that cuts out the insurance middle-man.
We are thrilled to announce that Adam Berkowitz has been selected to present at next week's DisruptHR event at Helium Comedy Club in St. Louis. DisruptHR is a high-energy idea forum designed to inform and empower executives, business leaders, people in the human resources field and anyone really, who is passionate about humans in the workplace.
Our topic: Restoring the American Dream: Delivering World Class Benefits to Your Employees at Half the Cost. Here's the catch...we have just 5 minutes and 20 slides to present our topic and slides will transition automatically every 15 seconds. This is sure to make for an entertaining evening.
If you are a business leader, a CEO, a technologist, a community leader, an HR professional, or someone who is simply passionate about new ideas in the workplace then DisruptHR is the place to be!
Come out to support, heckle, have a drink, and laugh with us. Thank you to all of my Health Rosetta cohorts for helping build out this content. This is going to be a fun event and a great networking opportunity. Tickets can be purchased here - be sure to get one before they sell out!

Have you ever inquired about the cost of a medical procedure or medication in advance of receiving it? What about price shopping to make sure you are receiving good value for your money? It has become standard to compare airline costs and rental cars or even drive the extra mile to save five cents on gas but when it comes to expensive tests like MRIs, we know that most people will go directly the hospital - usually the most expensive option.
According to a recent study, about 50% of employees are ‘concerned, anxious or fearful about their current financial well being’ and over 40% of employees are ‘looking to their employer for financial support’. Are your employees among those who are uneasy about their finances? Whether you like it or not, they’re looking to you for help. Even if your workforce is highly educated they still might have little to no personal financial acumen.
Not long ago a friend and client of mine received news that her husband had been diagnosed with stage IV cancer. Overcome with emotion and facing the labyrinth that is our healthcare system, she reached out to me for help. It still gives me pause to think that when faced with this life-changing diagnosis one of the first calls she chose to make was to me, her insurance broker.
