Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017
7:30 AM to 9:00 AM (PDT)

Join us for our breakfast series "Hot Topics/Cool Talks."

Each month, we bring together business and thought leaders to discuss ideas, technologies and trends driving change in our culture and economy.

The health care policy landscape is steeped in uncertainty, and employer insurance costs continue to climb. Yet high quality health care benefits packages rank at the top of the list for companies aiming to recruit and retain top talent.

Employers need to pay attention to new health care benefits innovations while taking advantage of proven strategies to reduce expenses.

Join Oregon Business and the Partners Group for a lively and informative conversation about how to boost employee wellness while controlling and even reducing health care benefits costs.

Our expert panelists will discuss the following topics:

  • Latest updates to the Affordable Care Act and how the law affects employers’ abilities to manage health care pricing
  • The transition from fully insured to self-funded plans and how that strategy saves money
  • How employers can implement multifaceted wellness programs aimed at improving employees' health and reducing health costs over the long term.
  • Pharmacy benefit management strategies
  • Targeted strategies for small and large employers
