In October 2013, public exchanges will come to most states for the first time, and will bring a new avenue of coverage for certain employee populations. Many employers will continue to offer group insurance in 2014 and beyond, yet may consider private exchanges or other arrangements that involve a defined contribution approach to health and welfare benefits.

Join us for an in-depth discussion on defined contribution and the factors that employers should weigh when considering the option.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Reasons to consider defined contribution in response to health reform, and how it differs from the way traditional health plans are offered
  • Employee populations that should be considered for defined contribution
  • Product types that will be sold in private exchanges and other defined contribution arrangements
  • The pros and cons of using a single defined contribution, and other options
  • Benchmarking to stay competitive with employers that are not following the defined contribution approach
