Controlling employee benefit and health care costs for contractors is critical to profitability, employee satisfaction, and financial forecasting in the bid process. The advent of Total Cost of Care (episodic cost management vs. typical PPO networks) is ushering in a new era of contractor sponsored health care and cost management. Over the coming years, employers will witness a shift in the traditional "PPO and POS” networks offered by insurance carriers and administrators that will significantly impact a range of benefit offerings and cost control measures historically utilized by employers. Using case studies and specific financial measures, this session will cover the historical “supply side” of employer sponsored health care arrangements and how the next 1-3 years will impact the employer and employee health care paradigm. This session will teach contractors the financial management tools of the coming era in employer-sponsored health care and ensure that the continued offering of this benefit is a viable financial option.
