Description:



Without a doubt, the hottest trend in benefits is implementing cost-containment strategies. The strategies available are evolving rapidly, and while many savvy benefits professionals are aware of what’s out there, they may not be up to date on the latest advances.

Join this online session to learn more about what’s new in plan and care delivery options for employers and how to offer these new choices effectively to your employees.

Discussion topics include:

  • The ABCs of ACOs (Accountable Care Organizations)—reducing health care costs by encouraging doctors, hospitals and other health care providers to form networks that coordinate patient care and incent them to deliver care more efficiently.
  • Narrow networks—streamlining patient choice to lower costs without sacrificing quality of care.
  • Bundled health care—finding a fair, cost-effective middle ground between fee-for-service and capitations.
  • Private marketplaces—expanding employee options and encouraging consumerism while stabilizing costs.
