As health insurance costs continue to spiral upward at an alarming rate, it has become painfully clear, that the “traditional” strategies of changing insurance carriers, changing plan designs, and changing employee contributions will not and cannot provide any form of sustainability or predictability over the long term. All these strategies do is shift risk from one insurance carrier to another, or shift costs and liability from the insurance carrier or employer onto the employee.
Employers must change their thinking from that or RISK TRANSFERENCE to RISK MANAGEMENT when it comes to their employee benefits program. This presentation will outline the three areas of risk in an employer sponsored health insurance plan, and how to effectively manage that risk.

Employers that offer company-sponsored employee healthcare benefits are facing an upswing in multifaceted challenges. Among the most daunting is the necessity to control costs, while providing competitive benefits that will help to attract, retain, and motivate the workers needed for their business to survive and succeed.
The need for meaningful and effective benefit tools that can be accessed when and where participants want them has become critical – both for empowering employees to make cost effective choices that also meet their unique needs, and to increase employee engagement and loyalty.
The ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, recently completed a survey of 501 decision makers from small, mid-size and large employers. These findings illustrate a need for increased benefits communications on behalf of employers, as well as the need for utilizing decision support tools and mobile applications to increase an employee’s knowledge of the suite of benefits to best address their individual needs.
This webinar will discuss trends in the use of benefits decision support tools along with a discussion on benefits communications – and the increasingly important role that the use of mobile applications plays.
The survey findings will address how companies plan on budgeting for increasingly complex communication requirements; the role of both mobile and other forms of direct access in supporting the strategic goals of engaging employees--while also proactively managing costs. We will discuss whether decision support tools are of value to employers and employees-- and what role such tools will play in the new world of Health Care Reform.
