In this presentation, Jason Rothman, an employee benefits attorney with the international labor and employment law firm of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart, P.C. will cover two key employee benefit plan issues that all employers must understand: (1) the Affordable Care Act employer mandate, including guidance issued this summer delaying employer mandate assessments until 2015; and (2) the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in the case of United States v. Windsor ruling that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. These two developments significantly impact employee benefit plans and require employers to take strategic action in the near future to comply with the requirements thereunder.

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.
Dependent Eligibility Verification Audits are an increasingly integral part of health care cost containment, ERISA compliance, and PPACA "Pay or Play" analysis. On average, 4-8% of Dependents enrolled in company benefits are NOT eligible. This costs employers 10's of thousands, 100's of thousands - even millions of dollars annually. Time and Money are the most common objections to conducting an audit, along with fear of adverse employee reaction. This webinar explores Best Practices, mistakes to avoid, and the substantial ROI achieved from a comprehensive dependent audit.
Participants will learn what fraud in a benefits plan looks like, how prevalent fraud really is, and what type of savings they can generate for their company with an audit.

Especially including incentives, you are spending a lot of money on wellness and related “soft” programs aimed at improving employee health. And you are being told these programs generate a high ROI. But chances are, you’re wasting your money. This webinar offers the opportunity to learn why this is the case before your CFO starts asking uncomfortable questions. All your CFO has to do is ask you what your company’s utilization trend is in preventable health-sensitive medical events (heart attacks etc.), and you’re stuck…because neither your vendors nor even your consultants are measuring or even identifying these events. Wellness isn’t magic and most medical events are unrelated to completing an HRA and being coached: when was the last time you yourself had a medical event that you could have avoided if a wellness program had been in place?
This webinar will pull the curtain away from the magic of alleged wellness ROIs…and show you how you can estimate your real savings without expensive consultants or fancy actuarial calculations…using only fifth-grade arithmetic and “ingredients you already have in your kitchen.”
Further, in addition to the standard HRCI eLearning credits, this webinar counts towards professional certification in Critical Outcomes Report Analysis http://dismgmt.com/certs/cora/self-study, the field’s only recognized credential in wellness/disease management analytics.
What does your CFO need to approve an effective wellness budget that will create a positive ROI? Do Health Fairs, Health Risk Assessments or Lectures create the evidence you need to get a wellness budget approved?
What needs to happen in order to create a positive return on investment? The answers are more basic than most corporations realize.
We will show you what actions you can take to create a measurable ROI with your wellness program, how to create sustainable behavioral change and how to get CFO approval for your next budget.
Not tricks, no gimmicks! Just a workable and repeatable system that will create the behavior change that is measurable, sustainable and provable: the basic on the chain for creating positive ROI.
Nobody- not Congress, the US Supreme Court, the President or any Wellness Initiative- can immediately impact the cost of health care better than a Dependent Eligibility Audit. Dependents are responsible for over 70% of most company’s health care costs, but on average, 4-8% of those dependents are ineligible for coverage and cost individual employers a FORTUNE annually. Whether your company has 50 employees or 5,000, this session will de-bunk universal myths surrounding Dependent Audits like “We don’t have fraud” (yeah, right!) and share best practices and worst mistakes. Attendees also receive an ROI calculator tool to determine expected savings in their own company.
Succeeding in your business will require you to stay ahead of the curve and this is no different with your employee benefit plan. To offer a competitive, well-managed and financially sustainable plan will require you to look ahead and examine the trends that will impact you.
Since prescription drugs make up the majority of cost in an extended health care plan, this webinar will focus on drug trend and costs. It will provide you with a foundational understanding of the drug management landscape including a closer look at generic drugs, brand name patents and biologic drugs. Further, we will examine the government, brand manufacturers and insurance companies’ reaction to these trends. The goal of this presentation is to equip you with a better understanding of the drug management landscape so to help you strategize and manage your benefit plan.
