Health Care: Can I really manage the cost?

As an employer, if you want to pay less for health care, then you should be able to pay less for health care.

What are the four competing interests that keeps companies from managing their health care costs? How does an employer navigate all the moving parts that go into managing health care cost? How do companies demand more cost transparency?Julien Emery, CEO of Allay, will discuss the following topics:

  • Cumulative increases in health insurance premiums compared to increase in workers earnings
  • Top benefit priorities that employers face
  • The four competing interests keeping companies from effective cost management
  • How employers can take back control on health care cost management
