A robust, high-quality health benefit program can give employers an edge in today’s competitive hiring market. Beyond attracting talent, an employer’s benefit program is a significant percentage of their budget, and the foundation of what helps employees, and their families stay healthy and productive. But it isn’t easy to pull together brokers, TPAs, PBMs, and network partners.

In this session, you’ll learn what to look for when choosing benefit partners and hear first-hand from other employers about what they’re doing, what they’re getting from their benefit partners, and why it matters.

CE Credits have been applied for.
