Are you getting a good deal on your health insurance renewal? Our webinar will help you understand the components of a renewal so that you can be better prepared, know what is negotiable, and contain your healthcare expense.

View of a family in a living room using a computer and different tablet devices.As an employer, it’s hard to know if you’re getting a fair health insurance renewal. The components of the renewal can be complex, and often you have limited additional detail beyond what the insurance carrier has provided to substantiate the requested increase. You may be able to get a 15% increase down to ”only 12%” but how do you know if that’s really a good deal?

In this webinar, we’ll go through the key components of a renewal for both a fully insured and a self-insured group health insurance plan. We’ll discuss what you should look for and where you may have opportunities to arm yourself with additional knowledge to effectively negotiate a fair renewal.

Main topics:

  • Fully insured renewals: How to read and understand the components of the renewal
  • Self-insured renewals: Administration fee arrangements and norms
  • Self-insured renewals: Stop loss considerations and options
