    Workforce Partners: The VA's Community Employment Services for Homeless Vets

    in Jobs

    Tuesday, May 26, 2015  | 1:00 PM EDT


    The VA's Homeless Veterans Community Employment Services (HVCES) program helps homeless veterans re-enter the workforce and is a valuable community partner for workforce development organizations.


    The Veterans Health Administration's Homeless Veteran Community Employment Services program provides wraparound services to Veterans exiting homelessness that enable them to successfully connect with businesses and return to employment. "This unique population is highly motivated and actually has a varied skill set from which employers can benefit," shared Dr. Carma Heitzmann, Director of VA's HVCES program. "Getting formerly homeless veterans into gainful employment and supporting them during that critical first year back in the labor force increases their success in both the workforce and in maintaining their housing status."  In this Workforce Central radio show from the National Association of Workforce Boards, President/CEO Ron Painter interviews Dr. Heitzmann to share the details of the HVCES program and how workforce development organizations can form partnerships and engage locally assigned Community Employment Coordinators to successfully place formerly homeless veterans into employment. Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about this valuable resource available to your region.

    in Health

    This is the continuing story of my mother's passing.  In this episode I will talk about what happens after the death, the details like dealing with planning two memorials, social security, finances, wills and final bills.  I don't think a person is prepared for what has to be dealt with.  I want to provide some insight as to what it is like during this time, staying focused and getting the job done when you are feeling sad and vulnerable.

    Life Challengers would ask the question "Is where I am this very moment, where I thought I would be in my Life Domains? Determining what is normal or acceptable to me is the beginning of the SELF-EVALUATION phase to becoming a LIFE CHALLENGER. Do you want to become a LIFE CHALLENGER? Well, becoming a LIFE CHALLENGER starts with getting to know you; your strengths and weaknesses, then deciding what you don't want out of life or better yet, what you want!

    in Health

    This episode is about my experience of  my mother's final days.  How hospice care was critical, how the assisted living staff dealt with the process and the details after death.  It is a time of joy and sadness, grief and celebration.  It will be about the impact of the year of care giving and the road to recovery when all is said and done.  The information, I hope will help others deal with the process of caring for a loved one at the end of life.

    Workplace Wellness, Self-Funding & More

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Doug Field and Ron Bachman are live in the studio with guests from Onlife Health and Apollo Healthcare.


    The first guest is Danny Timblin, president and CEO of Onlife Health. In this interview, Danny and the hosts will talk about the evolution of health care consumerism and the landscape for workplace wellness today. Ten years ago, the discussion focused on high-deductible health plans and health savings accounts. Five years later, the conversation turned to return-on-investment with a keen focus on the ROI for wellness and related services. Today, things are different; many employers are interested in wellness because it is the right thing to do. It is truly about understanding the individual person and putting forward a set of services and technology at the right point in the individual's daily life so that they continue to press forward with good habits.


    The second guest is Mark Ilgenfritz, CEO of Apollo Healthcare. In this interview, Mark and the hosts will discuss the combination of wellness programs with self-funding. Mid-sized employers have an important question to answer regarding health benefits. For the past thirty years, they have generally made annual decisions based on annual rate increases and annual rate shopping. What if they made one decision for five years, instead of five decisions for one year? Self-funding in combination with the latest claim management technologies and wellness programs can – probably – lower costs. Apollo’s multi-year, strategic captive program absorbs excess risk and offers the safest self-funding plan design in the industry.

  • The Private Exchange FORUM Pre-Conference Episode

    in Business

    With only a few days until the next Private Exchange FORUM kicks off in Baltimore, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field will welcome special guests from PlanSource and benefitalign -- sponsors of the upcoming event -- to the program for a comprehensive discussion on all things private exchanges.


    The first guest on this week's program will be George Tzinas, the chief experience officer at benefitalign, a comprehensive, cloud-based platform that enables your organization to rapidly launch shopping and enrollment solutions -- including private exchanges -- across all lines of business. In this interview, George and the hosts will review of how employers, brokers and some states are looking to health insurance exchanges to support the needs of their enrollees. George will also provide a snapshot of who is currently using a private exchange and why and some of the key points to consider when launching an exchange.


    The second guest on the show will be Scott Carver, president of PlanSource. In this interview, Scott and the hosts will discuss recent news from PlanSource, outline the private exchange model and analyze how its growing popularity is reshaping the industry. Forty-five percent of employers say they are considering private exchanges for their full-time employees before 2018. Scott will also address some of the questions facing employers as they determine the best way to administer employee benefits and explain the range of private exchange models available and the advantages of each.
