LCBGH's mission is to encourage a responsible partnership between employers and employees to maximize the health benefit through value based benefit design.
Promote employer wellness and chronic disease management programs.
Promote a collaborative dialogue among key stakeholders - business, healthcare providers, insurers and brokers - to keep healthcare affordable.
The Lancaster County Business Group on Health provides education on emerging trends and issues in healthcare through a series of seminars and networking conferences. LCBGH members attend our networking conferences free and our educational seminars at a reduced member rate.
LCBGH will invite, score, validate, promote and perform annual reviews of programs that assist employers in holding down the cost and utilization of healthcare. The intent of this program is to review commerical opportunities, but not recommend their effectiveness for any one member.
In 2006, LCBGH launched ActRx – a chronic disease, patient self- management program. Phase I of the program has focused on Diabetes and the program has demonstrated significant improvement in the health and well being of the employee participants and healthcare cost savings to the employers that are participating.
In cooperation with The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry, LCBGH conducts a Policy and Benefits Survey every two years. The survey asks County employers about the healthcare benefits they offer and the results provide a benchmark for them to evaluate the competitiveness and appropriateness of their benefit package. An executive summary of the survey is available to LCBGH members at no cost in the Members Only section.
