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!
