West Palm Beach, FL, October 13, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The theme of this year’s conference is "Innovation in Voluntary Benefits.” The focus will be on the importance of innovating new voluntary benefits products, new methods of enrollment and engaging employees and insured through social media and the internet.
Some of this year’s Keynote Speakers are:
John Casey, Director of International Benefits for Google - Creating the Healthiest Employee in the World
Cecil Wilson, President of the American Medical Association - The Future of Healthcare and Healthcare Reform in America
Susan Voss, President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners - A Practical Overview of State Health Insurance Exchanges
Bill Rancic, Winner of Donald Trump’s 1st Apprentice – Adaptability, How to Succeed in Business and Life
Jonathan Edelheit, Editor-in-Chief of the Voluntary Benefits Magazine and President of the Congress said, “With rising healthcare costs that are no longer sustainable and rising deductibles and coinsurance for employees, employers realize they must offer employees supplemental insurance that allows employees to cover the financial gaps. Also, as the economic recession continues employees are in a precarious situation and need the financial security Voluntary Benefits offer. Whether it’s a death in the family, a disability or being diagnosed with a disease, without extra coverage through voluntary benefits employees may find themselves not able to cover their basic expenses or needs or their housing expenses. Voluntary Benefits provide that cushion and protection for employees from the unexpected.”
Employers and Benefits Managers have the ability to attend with a complementary pass through the conference’s employer VIP program.
The Focus of this year’s conference will center on:
Innovative Trends in Voluntary Benefits
Voluntary Benefits Role in Healthcare Reform
Financial Security of Employees/Insured in economic climate
New Innovative Voluntary Benefits
Employer Case Studies
New interactivity and social media to keep employees engaged
