Session Description

With numbers doubling in just one year, its no longer a solid strategy to wait and see. An estimated 6 million U.S. employees and their dependents enrolled in private health insurance exchanges for their 2015 employer benefits, up from 3 million the year prior according to an April 2015 report by Accenture. The industry has reformed and employers are looking to you for guidance. They, and their employees, are hearing the industry buzzwords associated with private exchanges but may not fully understand what they mean and how to assess the options and their implications. In this workshop, well explore some of the myths and realities so you are better prepared to engage in the private exchange conversation with your clients and prospects.
