While benefit professionals work hard to create health care benefits that will bring high-performing, cost-effective programs to their members, they continue to be challenged on ways to keep cost down while engaging and navigating members to the best valued care. It takes a coordinated effort with outside resources to tackle all of the obstacles. During this webinar you will hear from learn from:

  • Sister coalition, Purchasers Business Group on Health, on the challenges and learnings from their 10-year injunctive relief effort to bring greater dollar value to purchasers. The initiative brought employers and unions together, along with the California’s Attorney General, to successfully file a class action suit against Sutter Health and their use of market power and monopolistic business practices that cost employers and employees money. Participants will learn action steps they can take to address these issues in their region.
    • Speakers:
      • Elizabeth Mitchell, President & CEO, Purchaser Business Group on Health (PBGH)
      • Shawn Gremminger, Director, Health Policy, PBGH
  • The Jackson Laboratory’s (JAX) successful efforts in health care navigation that empowered their benefits team to enhance employees’ benefits and the health care experience.
    • Speaker: Tom Ellis, Senior Director, Total Rewards & HR Technology, JAX
