Cutting Costs or Improving Health Benefits? What if You Don’t Have to Choose!

Jul 25, 2023

2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

The healthcare landscape continues to change quickly and significantly. Why then are many of the health plans being offered today designed years ago? Changes made to plans are often limited to cost-shifting, which can help control costs, but do not provide solutions to improving health outcomes and can put an undue burden on your employees. In this session, we will go over some of the new and innovative options and demonstrate a different approach to designing a health plan. We will introduce care and value initiatives that can reduce cost and improve overall population health and provide you 10 tips to take back control of your health plan.

How to Decipher Your Medical Insurance Renewal So You Don’t Get Duped.

Aug 22, 2023

2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

Employers have become accustomed to just accepting carrier data, ludicrous assumptions, and flawed methodology in the underwriting process. This is understandable since the fully insured renewal proposal can be hard to decipher. We will help you decode what seems undecodable and give you the tools and knowledge to understand your renewal —sharing an actual case study. This will help put you in the driver’s seat to ask the right questions, challenge carrier assumptions that do not align with your plan analytics and give you more leverage for negotiating your renewal to save money.
