COMPANY OVERVIEW

The Difference Card has been in operation for over a decade pursuing its mission to provide our clients with the most cost-effective health plan for their employees. Since 2001, The Difference Card has provided clients with an average net health care savings of 18%. The rising cost of healthcare and medical plan renewals is the single most important employee benefit challenge facing employer groups today. The Difference Card is an innovative mechanism that assists employers in self-funding a portion of their health plan. Thereby achieving a more economical healthcare plan structure that allows employers to maintain a richer level of benefits for employees without increasing employee contributions or reducing their benefit package. This results in a savings to the employer on its healthcare costs while controlling the amount of out-of-pockets expense passed on to its employees. The Difference Card is a fast paced, rapidly growing organization with offices in 13 cities across the country.
