What Our Employers & Members Say
Our move to Actin Care was precipitated by what we viewed as healthcare costs which were spiraling out of control at was simply an unsustainable rate for us as a small company. Actin has contributed significantly to our ability to control our healthcare costs and has reversed the upward expense trend. And, as importantly, our employees are now getting better, more well-managed care than we were in our previous health plans.
Our partnership with Actin Care has really done two things–first, its given us predictability and control over costs. In what is an otherwise out of control health care market, we’ve been able to stabilize, and in many instances, reduce our health care expenditures year-to-year. Second, we’ve been able to dramatically improve quality of care and outcomes for our employees—all at a sustainable and well-managed cost level from the company’s perspective.
The benefit to our employees having transitioned to Actin Care is hard to overstate. Before, they were subject to an expensive, high deductible plan which really impacted the health of our employee population negatively. In contrast, under our Actin Care program, our employees actively seek and receive care as needed, and the company is the better for it.
I wanted to let you know all the staff I’ve dealt with at Actin have been AWESOME to work with! Very friendly, responsive and caring is the best description I can think of to explain service received.
We are extremely happy with the care we receive from the ACTIN Staff. They always take the time to explain to us what we need to do and how to do it so that we get the best outcome combined with the medical care Dr. Gray and his staff provide to us. Dr. Gray has seen us individually and we all have the same respect and trust for him. He knows how to best advise us and tells us in which areas we need to improve. It’s great because he allows us to feel in control and responsible for our own health without guilt or shame. ACTIN Care Groups has been the best health coverage we’ve ever had.
The best part about Actin’s coverage is how affordable it is. Under past coverage I would pay twice as much money for worse coverage and higher deductibles. With Actin my costs are lower, and the coverage is much better.
I love that Actin encourages preventative care and the costs are low. Before having this insurance, I would always avoid annual checkups and blood-work because I didn’t want to pay a few hundred dollars.
In Partnership with AMITA Health
In 2015 ACTIN partnered with the Alexian Health System, now AMITA. Among AMITA's hospitals, 3 are among the 6 Illinois hospitals ranked in 2019 by Health Grades in as top 50 nationally. That is no surprise to us. The results of care and the satisfaction of our Members with it over the years has been superior. Loyola University Medical Center backs AMITA with uncommon services such as organ transplants.
