Available On-Demand
Date held: February 9, 2010, 2pm ET / 11am PT
Presented By: Employee Benefit News

The health care reform bill under debate on Capitol Hill is still years away from having an impact, but real reform is already well underway – it’s called “Consumerism.” Consumerism - in which consumers take personal responsibility for their health purchases rather than perpetuating the “blank check” mentality - may be the key to capping soaring health care costs and offers a powerful alternative to government-run solutions.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Trends in consumerism and the growth of HSA’s and HRA's
  • The true economic impact of account-based plans vs. traditional PPO’s and HMO’s
  • Challenges employers and employees face in transitioning to a Consumerism model
  • Best tools for administering account-based plans and educating employees

Speaker Panel:

  • Jay Savan, Principal, Towers Perrin
  • Steve Neeleman, MD, CEO, HealthEquity
  • Ray Seaver, Executive Vice President, bswift
