Health Insurance 101 - Lesson Plan

What's Wellmark doing to help me?

 

Wellmark cares about the health of Iowans and the rising costs of health care. We are working hard to reduce the growing health care and related insurance costs. Here are some ways we are helping to manage your health care costs:

  • Wellness programs. We provide support and guidance to help keep you healthy.
  • Improving the health of Iowans. We invest in Iowa communities through our Blue Zones Project™ as part of the Healthiest State Initiative. This project is helping to change environments across the state to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
  • Administrative costs. We carefully manage the dollars needed to run our business efficiently so that the majority of the dollars we receive in premiums goes toward health care costs.
  • Accountable Care Organizations (ACOS). We help to achieve better health outcomes. An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other health care professionals who are held accountable for the quality and cost of care delivered to a defined population. This new payment model focuses on coordinating care to improve quality, provide greater value, and slow increases in health care costs.
