Ever wondered if your business is really understanding the true cost of health care? Join us as we pick the brain of Kelly McDevitt, the President of the Nonprofit Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI). With a whopping 40 years of industry experience, Kelly unpacks how IBI assists businesses in deciphering the often-complex health care costs beyond just medical and pharmacy expenses. We dive into the increasing curiosity around self-insured plans and the pivotal role of data in employer decision-making. Plus, you'll discover how IBI's benchmarking data provides a panoramic view, setting the stage for strategic planning.

Then, as the conversation deepens, we navigate the murky waters of delayed health care and the difficulties it presents in sourcing relevant claims data. Our journey takes us into the heart of the pandemic's impacts on health and disability claims — including prolonged health issues related to COVID-19. Kelly sheds light on how businesses can utilize this data to craft well-informed decisions, the significance of benchmarking, and the unique challenges HR teams are currently facing. Tune in for an insightful conversation packed with valuable insights for employers seeking to understand the labyrinth of health care costs.
