Gadreau Group Teams with MyMedicalShopper

WILBRAHAM — The Gaudreau Group, a regional employee benefits firm, and MMS Analytics, doing business as MyMedicalShopper, a leading provider of healthcare price transparency solutions, are partnering to give consumers more choice and control with respect to their healthcare spending.

Today the companies announced the partnership, making MyMedicalShopper’s advanced healthcare price transparency software and cost-saving employer tools available to Gaudreau Group clients.

The Gaudreau Group can now deliver an entire suite of products which bring cutting-edge price transparency technology and robust claims analytics to employers and their employees. MyMedicalShopper™, MyMedicalRewards™, and a powerful employer analytics package are all now available to Gaudreau Group’s entire client base. The Gaudreau Group insures over 6,000 businesses and families across 14 states.

“We talk a lot about our healthcare cost crisis in this country, but no proposed solution has anywhere near the same potential for driving savings as price transparency and consumer financial alignment,” says MyMedicalShopper co-founder and CEO, Mark Galvin. “By partnering with progressive benefits advisors, we can effectively empower those consumers who stand to benefit the most, and collectively reverse the trend of rising healthcare costs for both individuals and businesses.”

For The Gaudreau Group, this new offering is a significant step towards an improved health benefits environment for their clients.

“With the dramatic changes in the healthcare industry over the past decade, our firm recognizes the critical need for better information and technology for empowering consumers,” said Jules Gaudreau, President of The Gaudreau Group. “We’re excited to incorporate MyMedicalShopper into our strategies for employee benefits and health plan design for our clients.”

MyMedicalShopper provides a comprehensive platform for employers that wish to arm their employees with a tool that makes shopping for medical care as easy as a Google search. Meanwhile, MyMedicalRewards provides a dynamic HRA or HSA funding mechanism that drives good consumer behavior even when employees are spending employer dollars. It combines reference-pricing models with the MyMedicalShopper shopping experience to reduce medical claims.
