The growing influence of Managed Care Organizations as significant influencers of product utilization decisions is creating new pressure to reduce costs among all sectors (providers, employers, manufacturers and consumers) in the system. Consequently, there is a trend for health insurance companies, in partnership with providers and employers, to develop and promote health and wellness programs, and preventative care and disease management programs. We work with some of the nation’s top insurers to help them achieve these very goals. In fact, many of the nation’s health plans consider Burke their preferred provider of research and consulting services, ranging from the largest national carriers to those serving regional markets. We have extensive experience with all key constituencies (including members, employers, brokers and agents, providers, pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, and others) and across all product lines (including Medicare and Medicaid, individual/direct pay and commercial groups).
