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!

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!

Supporting Employees’ Financial Well-being

Financial instability takes a huge toll on employee health and well-being and in fact, individuals with financial problems are three times more likely to develop a mental illness.

With one-third of millennials in financial stress and 44% of adults not able to cover a $400 emergency expense, a growing number of employers are providing programs and services to help employees make wise choices about personal finance options.

  • What kinds of programs should employers consider, and do employers who offer them see increases in engagement and productivity?
  • How can employers help employees make the connection between physical and financial health?
