CTBGH General Membership Meeting

Our November 3 CTBGH general membership meeting will take a fresh look at what employers can do to support  employees and dependents with chronic and complex health conditions.  Medical cost and productivity savings can be realized if members are:

More effectively navigating the health care  system

Optimizing their benefit plans

Making smarter medical decisions and adopting healthy  behaviors

Representatives from three very different organizations will provide us with insight into what they are doing to help members realize better care and the outcomes they have achieved.
