    Private Exchanges and Pet Insurance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing private health insurance exchanges, pet insurance and more with special guests from Accenture and Hartville Pet Insurance Group.


    For the first segment on today's program, Scott Brown, Private Exchange Offering Lead at Accenture, will be joining the program to discuss the firm's latest private exchange research. Accenture estimates enrollment in private health insurance exchanges doubled to six million individuals for the 2015 plan year. The company projects hypergrowth will continue through 2018, as a number of factors inhibiting early growth will dissipate, while several accelerators will spur further adoption. These factors, combined with the employer’s desire to meet consumers’ demand for choice and flexibility in a retail-like shopping experience, will lead to 40 million members on private exchanges by 2018.


    The second guest on this week's program will be JoAnne Novak, AVP Business Development at Hartville Pet Insurance Group, providers of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.  As one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the U.S., Hartville has committed itself to helping more pet parents have access to reliable and affordable pet insurance plans. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet, and last year, over $15 billion was spent on veterinary care. In this segment, JoAnne will discuss what’s driving the increasing demand for pet health insurance as a voluntary benefit as well as what makes pet insurance relevant for the workforce in connection with health care consumerism and private exchanges.

    What Your Pet Can Teach You--Featuring "Pet Grief Coach" Judy Helm Wright

    in Pets

    www.deathofmypet.com  


    As pet owners we are often concerned about what and how we can train our pets.  But the truth is that pets often teach us.  As a parent educator (and pet grief coach) I use animals to teach families how to relate to one another in daily life.


    Today's show will be about some of the life skills we can learn from animals.  Here are just some we will discuss;



    To have unconditional love for others.
    To be non-judgemental about race, gender, religion or nationality
    To protect our loved ones
    To be aware of other's feelings and show empathy and comfort
    To show loyalty for family
    To trust your instincts
    To live in the moment--don't hold grudges
    To keep our needs simple
    To hide a little something away for a rainy day
    To include excercise and naps in everyday.


    You are invited to call in during the show or to leave comments that may be used in an up-coming book on Animal-Human Connection. Thanks for being part of our community of kind, thoughtful people who want respect for all.  

    Judy Helm Wright, Pet Grief Coach and author of "I Lost My Best Friend Today--Dealing With The Loss of a Beloved Pet."


    PS:  If you have a pet story to share please send it to judy@deathofmypet.com  and be sure to put PET STORY in the subject line.  You may be featured in an upcoming book.
