We were featured in a Special Edition Book of GEEK SPEAK – A USEFUL GUIDE TO THE JARGON AND ACRONYMS MOST COMMONLY USED AMONGST HEALTH BENEFIT PROFESSIONALS AND PROVIDERS by High-Performance Providers.
Mitigate Partners and The FairCo$t Health Plan shared unique and candid translations. Some opinions were based on HPP’s 20+ years of experience in the industry. Make that 50+ years of experience going into this Special Edition of Geek Speak. A special thanks to Carl Schuessler, Jr. of Mitigate+ Partners for sharing his unique and candid translations. It has inspired a whole new language of healthcare that HPP refers to as – “Schuessler-ese” – which you will see italicized throughout this document. Clients and Prospects often find themselves in need of translation as some of us speak “provider-ese” while others speak “benefit-ese.”
Within these pages, you will find the most commonly used words, abbreviations, and jargon used amongst health benefit professionals. Please keep in mind that these definitions are not textbook. We hope you find this educational, useful, and perhaps even a little entertaining. Feel they missed something?
