    Benefits Administration and Private Exchange Technology

    in Business

    In the last program before the inaugural Private Exchange FORUM in Dallas, hosts Brent Macy and Doug Field will welcome two guests to the program to cover all of the latest in benefits administration and private exchange technology.


    The first guest on this week's program will be Kismet Toksu, president of EBenefits Solutions, an IHC Affiliate Member. In 2002, UPMC was seeking an online benefit administration solution to address its 50,000-plus employees spread over more than 50 business units at various locations. Unable to find a system to meet these needs, UPMC made significant investments in technology and expertise to build the solution in-house. The overwhelming success of this initiative for such a diverse organization fostered the creation of EBenefits Solutions in 2005. In this segment, Kismet and the hosts will discuss benefits administration trends and what's ahead for EBenefits.


    For the second segment, starting at 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Scott Carver, president, PlanSource, to the program to discuss the ongoing revolution in benefits administration. It's no surprise that the benefits industry is undergoing dramatic change, and it’s not really about benefits administration anymore – it’s about benefits engagement. The focus on private exchanges and their growth is one important catalyst for the change we’ve been seeing. 2015 is shaping up to be a milestone year for private exchanges with some very strong signals about how the market is viewing the importance of these technology platforms in the fast-changing health and benefits industry.

    Transparency, Private Exchanges & Consumer-Directed Benefits

    in Business

    With less than two weeks until Private Exchange FORUM kicks off in Dallas, hosts Ron Bachman and Brent Macy are live in the studio for a discussion of some of the hottest trends in employer-sponsored health care, including transparency, health data, health management, private exchanges and consumer-directed benefits. 


    The first guest is Joseph Berardo, CEO of MagnaCare, a leader in managing self-insured health plans in New York and New Jersey. For 25 years, MagnaCare has helped self-insured employers take control of their health care costs by providing cost-effective tools and solutions. In this interview, Joe and the hosts will discuss the benefits of transparent health data and how this data can be used to effectively control health care costs for an employee population.


    For the second segment, the hosts will welcome Jody Dietel, chief compliance officer, WageWorks, to the program for a discussion on strategies for effectively navigating and utilizing private exchange solutions. Private exchanges have given employers a new level of flexibility over the design and control of the costs of their health plans, as they are managing the health and wellness of their employees.  With the various types of exchanges already operating comes a responsibility to understand the different models and the factors that make them successful – or not - for any given company. In this interview, Jody and the hosts will discuss the key differences of private exchange models and provide strategies for this rapidly evolving dynamic in the marketplace.
