New York, NY (PRWEB) August 11, 2014
The Affordable Care Act is here to stay. Along with it, employers are evaluating their options for health insurance benefits: should fully insured plans be offered? Is a self--funded plan the way to go? What are private exchanges? Which types of benefits will help yourcompany attract and retain top talent? Join CFO and Empire BlueCross BlueShield on August 14, 2014 for a free, live webcast to learn more about the best practices in use today.
Pressure to keep a tight rein on the rising costs of benefits has finance chiefs scrutinizing line items, especially when the item costs are so high—as in the case of health insurance. At the same time, according to Mercer’s 2013 National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans, employers are reluctant to remove insurance coverage as an employee benefit. Ninety-four percent of large companies say they intend to offer employer-sponsored health plans for the next five years, and 77% of small companies anticipate the same.
With the average cost of health insurance valued at around $10,000 per employee, finance chiefs are pressed to learn their current options, keeping an eye on the company’s bottom line and minimizing the impact on employees. This webcast will explore different coverage options and discuss how you and your organization can provide attractive employee benefits while controlling costs.
The webcast features Mary Beth Findlay, Editorial Director, Product Development, CFO Publishing, who will lead a panel discussion with top healthcare professionals; Patrick J. O’Keefe, Vice President and General Manager, Downstate New York Commercial Markets, Empire BlueCross BlueShield; Joseph S. Kra, FSA, MMA, Partner, Health and Benefits, Mercer; and Michael S. Grant, Executive Managing Director, Employee Benefits Services, Crystal & Company.
“In this post Affordable Care Act world, decisions companies make about the health care benefits they offer, or choose not to offer employees, may well determine the short and long-term viability of their entire business model,” said Patrick J. O’Keefe. “With stakes this high, top company leaders are rapidly becoming experts on government reform efforts, employee wellness strategies, new insurance delivery models and more, to ensure that benefit offerings align with operational, human resources and financial goals.”
