 Join EPAY and PBA as we explore the future of the Healthcare industry

Rising healthcare costs have presented challenges for many companies across the U.S., as they struggle to find affordable group health insurance solutions that help them retain critical talent. With healthcare costs likely being the second or third largest corporate expense behind payroll, it’s essential to un­derstand the dynamics of different healthcare plan options, cost drivers and ways to control the increases.

When it comes to group health insurance, there are ways to save money—regardless of how your company’s healthcare plan is currently set up. The method of self-funding with a third party administrator (TPA) is growing in popularity not just among large employers but small businesses, too. This option can help companies mitigate the risk of rising health insurance premiums while continuing to provide employees with health coverage.

In this webinar, we provide actionable information that puts companies in a position to make informed decisions in mapping their future healthcare plan, including:

  • What it means to be fully insured or self-funded
  • How self-funding is helping many companies deal with rising healthcare costs 
  • How you can control healthcare costs and put more control in the hands of your members
