We’ve made a lot of changes to further enhance the interaction level and overall experience this year and expect this to be our best conference yet.

A Wisconsin-based third party administrator serving all 50 states, Cypress Benefit Administrators kicks off its third annual Cypress University in Las Vegas today with many changes in store for attendees.

The popular educational event brings employer-clients and brokers together with some of the top minds in self-funded insurance to learn about the latest happenings and trends in the health benefits industry. It also introduces some of the next-generation tools and solutions designed to keep employee benefit costs in check.

Dubbed as Cypress University 3.0, the conference has moved to Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and will feature favorite presenters from years past as well as a new line-up of industry experts.

Two interactive Q&A sessions have been added to the schedule and a variety of topics will be covered over the course of two days:

  • How to build an effective self-funded plan
  • Innovative treatment options with telemedicine
  • Saving plan dollars through Medicare-based reimbursement
  • Controlling dialysis costs
  • The essentials of dependent audits
  • Understanding stop loss insurance

In addition to a series of informational sessions, participants will have the chance to sit down for meet-and-greet visits with the presenters and hear from a panel of Cypress employer-clients about their own successes with self-funded plans.

Tom Doney, president and CEO of Cypress, explained that Cypress University continues to be a valuable learning opportunity for its attendees. “Ever since the first year, participants have been telling us how much real-world perspective they gain by attending Cypress University.” He added, “We’ve made a lot of changes to further enhance the interaction level and overall experience this year and expect this to be our best conference yet.”

A privately held company headquartered in Appleton, Wis., Cypress Benefit Administrators has been pioneering the way toward cost containment in self-funded health benefits since 2000. The third party administrator (TPA) is the country’s first to bring claims administration, consumer driven health plans and proven cost control measures together into one package for companies ranging from 50 employees to thousands of employees. It serves employer-clients across the U.S. with additional locations in Portland and Salem, Ore., Omaha, Neb. and Colorado Springs, Col.
