(ARC) offers customer focused solutions to basic and advanced chemical applications with global production facilities in the United States and Mexico, Many of the world’s largest companies are closely associated with ARC as business partners in the manufacturing of specialty materials for their products.

ARC services a wide array of industries including military defense, semiconductors, battery materials, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, automotive components, textiles, agricultural solutions, surfactants and industrial cleaners.

The Myth

Employers have limited ability to impact the actual cost of care. Status quo health plans make it feel like over-utilization, an aging population and increased demand are driving cost increases. 

The Truth

The easiest way to pay less for healthcare is to simply pay less for healthcare. 91% of all cost increases are the result of price increases and not demand. Price Failure (paying too much) not plan members is driving cost. 

The Solution & Impact

Remove the financial barriers to high-value care and deliver a benefit that employees love.
ARC worked with ZERO to eliminate deductibles, copays and co-insurance for care across 40+ clinical categories and over 3,000 unique services and procedures. Employees and their families were supported by ZERO’s concierge team of Personal Health Assistants and empowered to make better healthcare decisions without having to worry about financial barriers to the care they needed.
