Catch the Wave! Dive into New Employer Strategies for 2020

How are you getting ready for 2020? Have you found a strategy that lowers costs for high-cost conditions – but can also improve outcomes?  Do you suffer from wellness program fatigue and need inspiration to try something different?  What about telehealth, ACOs, urgent care and convenience clinics – do you have a plan that prevents your employees from getting caught in a tangled web of healthcare options?

New thinking on HDHPs indicates they may not be all they’re cracked up to be.  And creating a benefits strategy that caters to millennials can backfire when it comes to retaining other high-performing talent.  

These are just some of the topics we’ll cover at our 8th Annual Conference.

The year 2020 is coming fast.  Catch the wave and avoid a wipeout – our experts will show you how!

Eating Disorders: Hiding in Plain Sight

An eating disorder is a serious mental illness. In fact, anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder.

But despite serious consequences for health, productivity and relationships, it’s estimated that only one in ten people with an eating disorder gets treated. In many cases, their appearance or illness is not obvious.

So what do employers need to know about eating disorders and the treatments available for employees, children and family members who may be suffering in silence?
