Supplemental voluntary health insurance professionals will gather in Philadelphia September 5-7

I’m so excited about the breadth of information that we are going to be offering at this year’s forum. I believe we truly have something for everyone this year.

The National Association of Supplemental Benefit Insurance (NASBI), the nation’s leading advocacy organization for supplemental health benefits professionals, will host its 16th annual Supplemental Benefits Forum this September in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This forum has grown to become the must-attend event for insurance specialists from across the country, with professional development opportunities for those in product development, underwriting, marketing and sales, claims, risk management, and administration.

This year’s program will offer three tracks to choose from:

1) The Critical Illness/Accident and Hospital Indemnity track will cover key aspects of these supplemental benefits, including foundational information, deep dives into industry experience and innovative ideas on future product development.
2) The Life/Short Term Disability track will highlight the latest developments in these specialties and will look at innovative ways to market what some consider to be lower-growth products.
3) The General track will offer a host of opportunities to learn about compliance, corporate responsibility, technology, value-added services, industry innovations, and more!

“I’m so excited about the breadth of information that we are going to be offering at this year’s forum,” said Katherine Johnsen Read, Director of Accident and Health Product Development at MetLife, NASBI Vice President, and chair of the 2018 Supplemental Benefits Forum. “Every year, we build on what we’ve learned and try to add unique and exciting new sessions. I believe we truly have something for everyone this year.”

“This is absolutely one of the premier events in the insurance industry,” added Darrell Spell, member of the NASBI Board of Directors and Principal of Milliman, Inc., one of the world's largest providers of actuarial and related products and services. “This is an opportunity to get a wealth of industry knowledge in one place—and do some high-level networking as well.”

The Supplemental Benefits Forum will be held at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Philadelphia from September 5 through 7, 2018. Registration is now open, with special pricing available for a limited time. The roster of guest speakers will be announced soon.
