Director, Benefits and Safety
With deep roots in managing Safety programs, Dan Ludwig, Director of Benefits & Safety, brings over 20 years of experience in loss reduction. Under Dan’s watch, Brakebush Brothers, Inc. has seen a 75% decrease in occupational incident rates. Dan’s interest in connecting occupational and non-occupational losses evolved as he took on Benefits and the Wellness program in 2014 and shifted his focus to reducing health insurance losses. Brakebush has since opened an onsite clinic offering primary and acute care as well as a robust musculoskeletal injury prevention program, a centers of excellence program, and strategies to reduce prescription costs. Brakebush member premiums have not increased for four of the last five years and per member costs were lower in 2018 than in 2014.
As a result of Dan’s direction, Brakebush was awarded The Alliance (Wisconsin) Healthcare Transformation Award in 2018, and the 2019 Employer/Purchaser Excellence Award by the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions.
