About Mike

Mike Hill has been advising employers on health care cost reduction strategies for nearly two decades. An expert in self-funded medical plans, Mike has helped employers implement solutions focused on reducing the cost of health care, such as direct contracting, direct primary care, and others.

Understanding that pre-packed fully insured medical plans eliminate all employer control over their health care supply chain, Mike wrote “Not Rocket Surgery, An Employers Guide to Controlling the Health Care Supply Chain” which introduced the concept of the Total Control Health Plan.

Mike is passionate about empowering employers to use the same techniques on their health plans as they use to manage all other aspects of their business. By doing so, employers not only experience dramatic cost reductions and flat annual increases, but they also provide better plans to their employees.

Mike is a member of the Next Gen Benefits Mastermind Partnership, and serves and has served his community as a Board member of multiple non-profit organizations.
