EmployerLINC Webinar: Hostage or Hero — Taking control of the renewal process

Ever feel the health plan renewal process is holding you hostage? Does it seem like the insurance companies and brokers have all the control over what your plan will look like, what options you have, and how your pricing will be affected? Do you find yourself too crunched for time to seek alternative options and additional savings once you finally receive your renewal back?

Whether your health plan is fully insured or self-funded, the old adage that “information is power” applies here. Starting early and proactively arming yourself with meaningful, actionable information, data and analytics can make all difference as to whether you end up a hostage or hero in the renewal process.


Bill Freudenrich


In this one-hour webinar, employee benefits attorney Bill Freudenrich is joined by Todd Neaves, employee benefits and risk management consultant and president of PremierSource, to review key renewal strategies for both self-funded and fully insured plans. For plan sponsors who are unsure of whether it makes economic sense to switch from fully insured to self-funded, the panelists will also review common strategies and key decision points for making that determination.

Other topics include:

  • Why starting the process early and taking a proactive role are critical to managing costs and plan design.
  • What to expect – and demand – from your broker well before you renew.
  • Why understanding key data about your current plan’s usage can help you make important adjustments for next year’s plan.
  • Why you shouldn’t resign yourself to another automatic increase in costs … again.
