Self-funding opens up a world of opportunity for cost containment, customization to address your employees’ gaps in care and social determinants of health, and creativity that positions you as an employer of choice. But, in a marketplace that is constantly flooded with new ideas, which strategies should your organization actually consider?

This session tackles two of the buzziest topics in employee benefits: pharmacy spend and health captives. Our speakers will set the stage for your roadmap discussions with your benefits team, covering the trends we’re currently seeing in the marketplace and the solutions that can help you overcome your organization’s unique challenges.

Yes, strategies for containing health plan costs, and true innovation that lets you lead in the marketplace. Welcome to the BenLeader Lab.
