Aon Hewitt's Health and Benefits Consulting

Health and Benefits Consulting

As health care costs continue to rise, and legislative and economic changes alter the benefit landscape, employers are seeking innovative and cost-efficient employee benefits solutions. Continued cost management requires employers to focus on employee health, lifestyle choices and productivity. Aon Hewitt’s health and benefits consulting practice works with employers to develop customized benefits plans that drive engagement, promote responsibility and accountability, help participants manage chronic conditions and improve health and wellness.

Holistic Health Management Solutions

Health care management fosters improved and holistic changes in your employees’ health and productivity through well-thought-out intervention, reduced hospitalizations, and decreased accumulated lifestyle risks. Aon Hewitt delivers a turn-key solution. We have the consulting expertise and administrative resources to plan, design, execute and deliver your health benefits strategy. Our actuarial, medical, clinical, and legal expertise and influence with national carriers enable us to help you manage health care costs through a combination of approaches, including continued cost shifting and tougher negotiations with health plans.

An Approach Focused on Driving Change

Aon Hewitt’s data-driven approach identifies employee disease prevalence and savings opportunities, and our clinicians design interventions, assess program success and identify opportunities to improve clinical outcomes. Experienced actuaries devise employee incentive programs that encourage more participation, drive changes in employee behaviour and measure the program’s return on investment.
