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!

  • Do a 360 on High Cost Conditions                                                          
  • Drop In on a Wellness Wave that Works

Communicating the Value of Employee Health Benefits

Are you tasked with developing a benefits package that helps attract and retain high-performing talent?

Then don’t undermine it with a lackluster communications strategy!

Employers can develop the most robust and brilliant benefits package but if it isn’t communicated effectively, your workforce won’t understand the value and embrace it as they should.

Join your peers in a discussion about what they’re currently doing, and see if some out-of-box thinking can boost your communications strategy!

Supporting Employees with Cancer: The Cancer Care Huddle

Cancer is a complex illness. Employers often involve multiple vendors in their efforts to support employees and family members diagnosed with cancer, but lack of coordination among health plans, care navigators, 2nd opinion services, EAP, disability vendors and others can result in sub-optimal care as well as unnecessary stress and confusion for everyone involved.

Hear how one employer – Pfizer – is implementing a new employee-centric model of cancer care called The Cancer Care Huddle. And learn what other employers can do to develop a similar approach!
