With the move away from fee for service to value based reimbursement initiatives, employers still struggle with healthcare costs and the shift towards high deductible health plans. Further, employers looking to bring added value to their employee benefits offerings may be doing so at the expense of ERISA compliance.

On June 1st, our expert panel presented the recent trends in health plan design and contracting to address healthcare costs and population health management, as well as tips and traps for employers offering voluntary benefits.

Byrne Decker and Christine Worthen (former Pierce Atwood attorney) were joined by guest presenters from Acadia Benefits Inc. and Harvard Pilgrim HealthCare.
