Midwest Carriers Honored with Award as One of America’s Best Health Plans

The 2023 Rosie Awards recognize high-value, low-cost health plans from employers and unions across the U.S.

Midwest Carriers was honored at the inaugural “Rosie Awards” presentation in Chicago with a national award for health plan excellence and stewardship. Fifty employers or unions with memberships ranging from 27 to 300,000 were honored by over 700 healthcare and benefits professionals, industry experts, and thought leaders who gathered at the Chicago Navy Pier on August 7-9 to discuss strategies for delivering better care at a lower cost while improving patient outcomes.  

The 2023 Rosie Award winners were chosen from plans recommended by benefits advisors, solution providers, or clinical leaders who met two important criteria: a high Plan GraderTM score and excellent use of their “Health Rosetta Dividend.” The Health Rosetta Dividend refers to money previously wasted on healthcare that can be reinvested back into the organization or community to improve wellbeing, such as free primary care services, pay increases, $0 medications, new job creation, or other tangible improvements that have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of their workforce, dependents, and communities.   

Dave Chase, Health Rosetta Co-founder, offered additional insight on the 2023 Rosie Award selection criteria behind America’s Best Health Plans: “With health plan costs being one of an organization’s top three expenses, it’s imperative that leadership have a comprehensive third-party assessment to help them understand how their plan is operating, how it compares to high performance plans, and provides detailed best practices and strategies to improve their plan. The Plan Grader provides such an evaluation.” All 2023 Rosie Award winners were required to complete the Plan Grader, adopt fundamental parts of a Health Rosetta plan, and demonstrate compelling ways they are employing their Health Rosetta Dividend. These employers and union strategies set the standard for their industries and communities.  

Midwest Carriers selection as one of the 2023 Rosie Award winners also spotlights the award-winning plan design and advisement led by Health Rosetta Advisor, Drew Leatherberry of Avergent.    

“It’s an honor to serve as the strategic benefits advisor for Midwest Carriers. Through their forward-looking leadership and strong communication, we successfully introduced benefit plan changes and new solutions partners that have enabled us to significantly reduce their plan’s healthcare costs while greatly enhancing benefits. Some of the great things we’ve added include zero deductible, lower weekly premiums and access to top health care providers. Midwest Carriers can be very proud to be recognized as an industry leader with one of the best health plans in America.”  

The Rosie Awards are presented by Health Rosetta, a collective of people that has seen the future of health in action and are passionately working to make it a reality.
