“Today’s evolving health care marketplace challenges employers to find new ways to manage costs while providing a variety of valuable benefits to employees and their families,” says Marien Diaz, vice president, Stop Loss Claims for Symetra. “Plan sponsors are looking for creative solutions that are not only unique to their group plan and employee needs, but that also fit a specific budget. They want straightforward benefits, responsive service and specific advice so they can have confidence in their benefit decisions and don’t have to be the experts.”


Webinar participants will learn about high-cost claims trends and the drivers behind them, as well as the impact of rising claims costs on consumers. They’ll also receive tips on developing a supplemental insurance strategy to support employees’ financial wellness goals.
