Cost: Complimentary

In today’s uncertain landscape of record-breaking inflation and widespread labor shortages, employers are struggling to manage rising healthcare costs while continuing to attract and retain employees. As a result, many are rethinking their benefits offerings and looking to their advisors for guidance. Benefits advisors must continue to provide value in today’s tumultuous environment, plan ahead for upcoming economic challenges, and evaluate how technology can impact their decisions. Virtual care can be a great way to cut costs, and more easily provide benefits, such as mental health care, that today’s overwhelmed workforce is looking for.

  • How the current economic environment is impacting the health care landscape, as well as employers and employees

  • Topics that advisors should be integrating into their open enrollment discussions, including  mental health benefits and virtual care options to help reduce costs and improve care

  • How benefits strategies are shifting in light of the impacts of inflation, a looming recession and the resulting challenges faced by employees

  • And more!
