VP Navigate: Simplifying benefits and increasing savings

Did you know that only 12% of people feel they have sufficient literacy to navigate the healthcare landscape? That means that most of your employees lack the necessary tools to spur confidence to select the right support, and they’re missing out on taking advantage of their benefits. Couple your members’ confusion with the rising costs of care and your members may be overspending or choosing to delay care in general—which can be detrimental to their health. In fact, nearly one in five older adults who experienced delayed medical care reported perceiving their health was negatively affected by the care delay. 

We know that you do your best to promote your suite of benefits in various ways—through the Virgin Pulse app, webinars for your members, in-office signage, or even through your company’s intranet.

Your employees are inundated with options. Nearly one-third of employees want their employers to provide online decision-support tools, so what else can you do to assist your members so that they feel confident when they make healthcare decisions?  Don’t worry, we can help!

Taking VP Navigate to the next level

Add Health and Benefits Guides to VP Navigate to further complement your benefit navigation solution for your members. These benefit experts can help your employees navigate the complexities of the healthcare system. They can also help members better utilize available benefits and programs available in the app—like Journeys.

Navigating the healthcare system is challenging and members need guidance on how to get the right care at the right times while helping improve care compliance, close gaps in care, and drive down costs. 

What are Health and Benefits Guides and how can they help? Guides are Virgin Pulse healthcare experts who assist your members in overcoming barriers to care and compliance with appointments. They can also help your members enhance their quality of life, improve health metrics, and better utilize their available benefits. By working directly with providers, health, and social resources, Guides also help coordinate care for your members with chronic or critical health conditions.
