Telemedicine is in your future as both a consumer and as a practitioner! Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. It reduces employer healthcare costs and can also help eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations. This session will examine the reason for the increasing interest of this service by employers and employees.

1:45 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Group LTD: Relationship of Risk vs. Cost Premium
John Stoner, President, THE STONER ORGANIZATION

Often the employer’s decision-maker treats group LTD much like the group life sale in that the lowest premium wins. This session will discuss a strategy that, with the assistance of a fact-finding session, will find the money by fine tuning other benefits to upgrade the group LTD plan to pay the maximum amount available. By exploring in depth the choices of contractual language and plan design features, we can assist with improving broker expertise, which will result in better overall group LTD planning nationwide.

2:30 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Productivity as a Value Proposition!

The industry is witnessing a transition from defi ned benefi t to defi ned contribution in employer health care funding. This session will explain how to communicate to clients the importance of worker productivity and the value of a healthy working population.
