Nimble Health works directly with self-funded groups

The Nimble Health musculoskeletal (MSK) concierge program is a valuable benefit enhancement that can be implemented quickly and seamlessly by self-funded health plans sponsored by corporations, labor unions, municipalities, school districts, and state and federal health and welfare funds. We are the most comprehensive member engagement program available today that is focused exclusively on the MSK care continuum.

What health plan sponsors need to know about MSK disorders

MSK disorders are one of the fastest-growing and costliest components of health care budgets for most self-funded groups. With as much as 15% of total spend attributable to treating conditions involving back, neck, knee, shoulder, or hip pain, MSK services are typically a top-three cost category for plan sponsors. Often MSK care is delivered inefficiently or inappropriately, driving up costs, leading to poor outcomes, and causing patient frustration.

The biggest obstacle to recovering from MSK disorders and injuries: 80% of people who are living with chronic pain do not receive the crucial non-surgical preventative care that experts recommend. This is where Nimble Health comes in.

How Nimble Health works

By putting patients first and focusing exclusively on their well-being and recovery, Nimble Health is a valuable partner in helping to get your members healthy and back to work as soon as possible. The Nimble Health team is staffed with highly experienced, clinically trained care navigators who guide members to their optimal MSK care path so they can enjoy improved mobility, dexterity, and productivity. Our team stays in frequent contact with your members, providing them with educational tools, answering their questions during one-on-one conversations, assisting them with appointment scheduling, and facilitating conservative care options when clinically appropriate. If surgery becomes necessary, we help patients select the best surgeons by subspecialty available in your health plan’s provider network, and provide compassionate pre- and post-surgical support.
