Presenter: Justin Leader-Vice President of Business Development, Benefit Design Specialists

Summary of Presentation: 

This discussion will focus on the ever changing paradigm of healthcare and employee benefits.  Historically employers (and HR) have felt relatively helpless in the face of rising healthcare costs.  Many of the key consultants, vendors, payors and stakeholders that employers depend upon have a vested interest in increasing the cost of healthcare in turn increasing their profits.  These increases not only hurt the bottom line of the employers but as deductibles have increased steadily, employees are often faced with lack of healthcare affordability while take home wages remain stagnant.  Employers are tasked with establishing friend or foe as well as strategically positioning themselves to be expert negotiators often times not knowing who they can trust.  This presentation talks about the current state of healthcare and provides education to HR on how they can better identify opportunities which may be considered outside of the box by historical standards.  We will touch on contract negotiations and ways that they can ensure that their vendor partners are looking out  for their best interests as well as the best interest of their employees.
