At Cubic, everything we do begins with the data. But our work isn’t finished until we have helped our clients successfully capture the opportunities that our advanced analytics reveal.
Since 2003, Cubic has been an objective, data-driven partner for plan sponsors who want to take greater control over their benefits plans. We provide management teams and benefits committees with an independent and unvarnished view of where their money is going, why, what they should expect in the future, and what they can do about it now.
With our Cubic Drug Database incorporating more than 10,000 drug-level updates each month, ever-evolving analytics capabilities, and more licensed pharmacists on staff than most insurance carriers, we offer nuanced insight, practical strategic advice, and hands-on assistance.
MIKE SULLIVAN, CEO & CO-FOUNDER
“The past is not a reliable indicator of costs in health benefits. Plans are routinely flushing 10% or more of their spending down the toilet every year, without any benefit to members. Those are resources that could be used to fund so many interesting health and wellness initiatives or to expand benefits in other ways.”
A second-generation pharmacist with a background in finance and business, Mike is a passionate advocate for plan sponsors. A frequent speaker and commentator on issues related to benefits plan sustainability, he has appeared on CBC, BNN, and in The Globe and Mail. He is also a regular columnist in Benefits Canada magazine. Mike is an Adjunct Professor at University of Toronto, where he teaches in the area of Management Fundamentals.
CHRIS VON HEYMANN, COO & CO-FOUNDER
“I’ve always been driven by the idea of creating solutions that employers, plan sponsors, and members didn’t know they needed, but tomorrow can’t live without. That’s how we will make a lasting mark in our space, by providing tangible value to our clients in a way no one else has.”
A licensed pharmacist, Chris co-founded Cubic after serving as the lead on drug utilization reviews for an international consultancy. Today, he oversees client management and delivery, working directly with our clients and their carriers to reveal and capitalize on opportunities for smarter plan management. In addition, Chris leads innovation and new product development, as Cubic’s offerings continuously evolve to meet the needs of our clients. He is a regular industry speaker on the role of data analytics in managing plan performance.
