Medical Benefits Exposed - Knowledge You Need Now!


Workshop which is designed to broaden your knowledge of healthcare plans, carriers and their renewals. The presentation is based on years of experience interacting with HR staff, and compiling the most commonly-asked questions, or misunderstood features of medical plans. In this post-healthcare reform market, understanding how your plan works and how to approach cost-containment is knowledge you need now.

Workshop will cover the following topics:

  • The little known "Whys" behind certain components and/or restrictions on all 3 medical plans
  • Components of an HMO plan and how they interact with each other to encompass managed care
  • Overview of what factors carriers use to calculate renewal increases
  • Outline cost containment solutions for rising healthcare costs
