Myths and Misconceptions About Employer Health Plans


Session Description

Although many popular ideas about medical plans are based on truths, the complicated issues involved are often misunderstood or oversimplified to the point of being false or misleading. A favorite among attendees, this seminar seeks to provide a deeper understanding of how many decisions plan sponsors make often have unforeseen and unfortunate consequences. Find out how private exchanges are bad for employers, bad for employees...but great for brokers! Discover why spousal programs do not work and how your spouses do not cost what you think. Finally, see why your medical plan is managing the wrong population's health and how your broker's best intentions can actually be costing your company money!
