In The Action Group’s 2017 Annual Employer Benefits Survey, the top reason cited for changing health plans was cost. Yet, innovation, service, “fit,” and measurable results are also important factors.
Navigating the vendor landscape, ensuring “apples-to-apples” comparisons, and managing the internal decision process is plenty challenging. When a decision is reached, that starts the wheel turning on contracting and implementation. Even the most seasoned of benefits professionals are often left scratching their heads and asking, “Does this process really add value?” And, “Isn’t there a better way?”
The Action Group has convened a panel of experts to share their perspectives, lessons learned, and best practices to help you survive and thrive in the upcoming RFP “season.” The panel will include a consultant, a health plan, and fellow employers. In addition to hearing from these experts, we’ll encourage robust discussion.
Please join us as we explore proven practices and new ideas for improving efficiency and effectiveness of the RFP process. Come prepared to share your frustrations and your triumphs. Expect to walk away with tips and ideas you can put into action right away!
