The reviews are coming in
and the verdict is clear:

Cracking Health Costs and
Why Nobody Believes the Numbers
are the best books ever written.*

Access to Other Experts

Access to One Another

HC2 is not for the me-too crowd. It is for industry leaders only, people who:

  • can think independently rather than jump on board whatever program happens to be in vogue;
  • don’t assume that numbers are right because a carrier, consultant, broker or vendor tells them so; and
  • are interested in optimizing their spending on health care and human capital programs to achieve the best result, rather than creating as large a budget as possible.

We only want members dedicated to creating award-winning programs, who want to create a culture of wellness rather than just administer an HRA with some coaching, and who aren’t afraid to walk away from previous vendor and carrier relationships if they find out they had been misled by substandard programs or faulty metrics.

It’s not just that you will have access to others in your field. Because members will self-select this way, you will have access to the best in your field. Further, uniquely, when you provide advice to others – if your advice passes their muster – they can nominate you for our best-practices database. If we then put your best practice in our database, you (or your organization, depending on your corporate policy) win a $200 Gift Card to the chain of your choice. This policy creates incentives for all parties to help one another be the best that they can be.

Access to the Field's leading Luminaries

At no additional expense, if neither Al Lewis nor your peers can provide guidance you consider adequate, HC2 members can have unlimited telephone conversations with the leading luminaries in human capital outcomes. Examples:

  • Dave Rearick DO, author of the bestselling book in wellness industry history, Good Health is Good Business and host of Healthy Business Radio.
  • Jim Prochaska, inventor of the transtheoretical model of behavior change (the “Prochaska Model”) and considered the world’s leading expert in the field of behavior change psychology.

Note that this list specifically does not include people who (1) write books finding massive ROIs in wellness or DM or (2) are advisors to carriers whose programs purposefully overstate savings or (3) can’t do math. You don’t need our help to be misled. There are plenty of opportunities to do that on your own. (You may also nominate experts to this panel yourselves, subject to those three qualifications.)
