Regence saves trees and time with online Employer Center Tool

Regence Employer Center eliminates need for paper reports and provides 24-7 access to customizable reports on claims, financials and enrollment

(Portland, OR) – With health care costs rising each year, employers are looking to their health insurers to deliver solutions that save money and time. Regence has answered its members with the Regence Employer Center, which provides employers with customizable, flexible information that allows them to see how their health care dollars are being spent, including claims information, financials and enrollment numbers. Online enrollment and billing is also available to groups on select plans.

The Regence Employer Center is an online experience that serves as a single source for all employers’ needs. Through the site, groups can access employer reports to sort, filter and customize information in a way that works for them. They can subtotal and filter reports that provide data on their health care package. Agents can automatically see reports for their clients in the Regence Agent Center as soon as they are available.

“Regence Employer Center meets our customers’ need for a solution that is environmentally responsive, saves time and space and adds value to their health care package. We designed the Employer Center with our employer groups in mind. It is a single on-line experience that provides employers with information in the way that works for them,” said Mike Alexander, vice president of Account Management for Regence.

Currently, Regence’s online reporting system features a variety of reports that show employers how their health care dollars are being spent and what their employees are seeking care for. Financial reports show employers how their health care dollars are being spent. Benchmarks let them compare their health care spending to that of other employers. Clinical reports show the type of care employees received and who provided it, including a top provider summary, specialized services analysis, utilization by diagnostic range and a place of service summary.

New additions to the Regence Employer Center include educational materials such as informational articles, webinars and white papers to further support employers’ efforts to use their health care dollar wisely. Finally, paper reports will be phased out by the end of 2008 in favor of online reporting, which will serve as the reporting tool of choice for employers, agents and brokers.
