Stratasan’s 2020 Townhall

The Stratasan team recently held our annual Town Hall, which is a time set aside for reflection and preparation for the new year. Following the pattern of most everything else in 2020, this year’s Town Hall looked different from the past. It was virtual and shorter in length in an effort to be mindful of the taxing nature of multi-hour Zoom meetings. 

One consistency from the past was that much of the time was spent reflecting on our purpose, niche, and the ongoing evolution of our company story. This trifecta encompasses what makes our company unique. Our success and our capacity to help our customers succeed comes as a result of our ability to embody these principles and, as a team, see them realized in every area of our work.

We wrapped up our time together with a workshop on self-acceptance, led by Laura Gallagher of Gallagher Edge. Overall, it was a much-welcomed time of team connection and vision-casting for the year to come.

Congratulations, Carlos Orozco

Insurance Coverage Estimates Report Updates

At Stratasan, we believe in continuous improvement. Sometimes that improvement means making updates to our platform offerings. With that in mind, we want to make you aware of additions to our Canvas platform.

Added Medicare Advantage as Insurance Type

Any covered lives identified as 65+ with a Direct Purchase plan are now separated into the newly created Medicare Advantage insurance type. These covered lives were previously all under the Direct Purchase insurance type. Stratasan is working under the assumption that any direct purchase plan associated with a person 65+ is considered to be Medicare Advantage.

Added Age Group Detail 

Users can now view the insurance coverage for pediatrics, adults, and seniors separately via the report export. A new column for age groupings is included. Ages are split into the following ranges: 0-18, 19-34, 35-64, 65+.

These changes are both effective as of October 22, 2020.

Please feel free to reach out to your Customer Success Manager or to support@stratasan.com directly with questions or for additional information.

Once the candidate has gained eligibility, the candidate can sit for the 200 question, four-hour exam.

She is a rare combination of intellect, resourcefulness, and gentle strength that allows her to add tremendous value to the clients she works as well as our internal team. She is always looking for ways to learn and grow and was quick to raise her hand to sign up for her PMP certification when I raised the opportunity to the team last fall. The program is challenging on its own, but especially so when combined with a demanding full-time job in today’s environment. I am thrilled to congratulate her for successful completion of the PMP program!” – Stephanie Johnson, EVP Customer Experience
