So much health insurance confusion means it is critical for many employers to make the right strategic health plan decision, but almost impossible to feel like the right decision has been made.
Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
Today, Bernard Health announced that Roy Ramthun, former healthcare advisor to George W. Bush, will speak at the September seminar "Health Reform and Health Savings Accounts: The Opportunity, The Confusion." Joining Roy will be Sam Shallenberger, Chief Financial Officer of RJ Young, who will present a case study of how RJ Young utilized a Health Savings Account-based health plan strategy to save the company and its employees a fortune.
Taking place on Tuesday, September 27th at the Hilton Garden Inn at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee, the seminar is aiming to address the confusion and opportunity around health reform and Health Savings Accounts. It is timely, as the majority of small and medium-sized employers are entering the "open enrollment" season -- that time of year when they have to make their strategic health plan decisions for 2012 and beyond.
Roy Ramthun led the implementation of Health Savings Accounts at the U.S. Treasury Department after they were enacted into law in December 2003. President George W. Bush then tapped Roy as his senior health policy advisor at the White House.
In 2010, Sam Shallenberger investigated Health Savings Accounts as a strategy to decrease employer and employee medical benefit expense. In the first plan year, RJ Young saved nearly $1 million (25%), with a further 1% decrease for the second and current plan year.
"So much health insurance confusion means it is critical for many employers to make the right strategic health plan decision, but almost impossible to feel like the right decision has been made. Roy Ramthun and Sam Shallenberger are uniquely positioned to provide both the 'higher level' and 'real life' perspective that many employers need in this area," said Jocelyn Chambers from Bernard Health. "We're thrilled to have them."
