Employers will discover new alternatives for lowering healthcare costs while improving the quality of health benefits for employees

Belleville, Illinois — August 24, 2020 Allsup, the nation’s premier advocacy firm providing guidance on alternative healthcare options, is partnering on an employer webinar with the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC), which provides education for absence and disability management professionals.

The webinar: “2020 Tools & Tactics Webinar: Healthcare Solutions for Employers’ High-Cost Populations” will take place on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET.

Employers and employees are facing more difficult choices as rising healthcare costs continue to affect their bottom line. “While employers work to maintain budgets and offer the right benefits to keep their workers healthy, employees are struggling to identify the right offerings that fit their needs and personal finances,” said Steve Perrigo, Vice President, Allsup. “This webinar will be a great opportunity for HR professionals to learn about alternative healthcare benefit options, along with a complete roadmap for change.”

The session will help HR professionals identify key cost drivers and provide alternatives and tactical solutions that benefit both employers and employees. The session qualifies for one PHR and one SHRM Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credit.
