With a new President in the White House, America’s fragmented healthcare system now faces different challenges and monumental change. Yet, one critical obstacle remains the same: healthcare consumers still carry the heavy burden of rising healthcare costs, yet lack transparency in price and quality data. As a result, employers – now more than ever – are relying on their broker partners to help them navigate the ever complex employee-benefits landscape. And brokers are rising to the occasion through new innovations in benefits technology.

Today’s benefits landscape is changing faster than ever before with no signs of slowing down. Developing new voluntary products for a workforce comprised of baby boomers that are working longer and millennials that make up the largest and youngest portion of the workforce is a challenge for everyone. Rising health care costs, employees paying more than ever before, and a diverse workforce puts pressure on advisors and carriers to bring the most suitable solutions to current market dynamics. Join us to discuss the trends that are shaping new products.
