Luncheon Presentation
Breaking the Status Quo in Todays Healthcare Landscape
Summary of Event: Business leaders demand new ideas and better results every day.  How can you manage your benefits budget so it is cost effective yet delivers a meaningful and measurable return?
Join us to learn how to develop a 3 to 5 year strategic plan to take control of your health plan.  Using the BenefitsEdgeTM Strategy learn to implement cost containment strategies and place them on timelines.  This game changing strategic planning process allows organizations to intentionally determine the outcomes of their benefits investment and break the status quo.

Participants will receive valuable insight into getting the most out of their benefit strategy meetings with their brokers.  Turn your broker meetings from transactional and reactionary to strategic and goal focused to create solutions that have the highest return on investment.

All attendees will receive a copy of Tim Olson’s new book “Breaking Through the Status Quo”.

You Have a Healthcare Business and It’s Losing Money   
Summary of Event: America, we have a problem. A healthcare problem. Managing the health plan today can feel like playing a rigged game where the odds are stacked against you. As a result, employers are stuck trying to manage a health plan that is, all-too-often, misaligned with the organization’s culture and mission. In the end, it’s the employee who continues to pay more for a watered-down health plan. This session will provide eye-opening experiences that will benefit employers, employees and families.
