The rising costs of healthcare combined with the effects of an aging population leave benefits administrators and finance directors with the unenviable job of providing quality, flexible, affordable healthcare to plan participants all the while balancing the bottom line.

In addition, potentially radical, new burdens have been placed on these plan administrators with the recent enactment of financial reporting requirements (statements 43 and 45) by the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB).

Now, all post-employment benefits must be accounted for on the balance sheet in the same way that pension benefits are required to be reported. Plan administrators and executives require:
Education and training on how to comply with the requirements of GASB 43 and 45 - OPEB
Information about the financial planning options available to them
An understanding of how big an impact these new standards will have on their plans
Dedicated to meeting the needs of the public sector, Financial Research Associates’ Healthcare Cost Control Summit will educate inform attendees with practical solutions and results-oriented strategies to help them meet the daunting challenges ahead. Major Themes for this Public Sector Summit Include:
Healthcare cost containment strategies and new models for managed care & other health plans
Managing unfunded benefit liabilities for GASB 43 & 45 - OPEB compliance
Understanding the trends toward consumer-driven health plans
Disease management strategies and advanced techniques for controlling healthcare costs
