Health Care: Can I really manage the cost?

  • This event has passed.

Warren Buffett famously called General Motors, “a health and benefits company with an auto company attached” and every CFO has heard how Starbucks spends more on healthcare than coffee beans. As a financial executive, if you don’t actively manage healthcare costs you are fundamentally failing to control your second largest expense after payroll.

Learn how to take control with deep understanding of:

  • The competing interests that prevent companies for effectively managing health care costs
  • How altering the relationship with your benefits broker can turn “the renewal messenger” into a stalwart solution partner
  • Why downgrading plan designs and increasing member costs is the antithesis of a sustainable and affordable health plan
  • What actually moves-the-needle in driving down costs without driving away your employees
