Aligning On Healthcare: Trends, Compliance, Cost and Employee Expectations
hosted by
The Chicago CFO Leadership Council
Thursday, December 14, 2017
7:30 AM to 8:00 AM Registration, Networking, and Breakfast
8:00 AM to 9:30 AM Program

If not managed effectively, healthcare becomes the Achilles Heel that challenges a company’s profitability and growth. Finance executives face four interrelated daunting challenges:

• Evolving trends in healthcare delivery,

• Changing and complex compliance regulations,

• Increasing trends in cost via claim and premium increases, and

• Retaining talent in the face of heightened benefit expectations.

Thus, how can finance executives lead their organization to understand the implications of today’s changing healthcare environment while balancing the need to realize effective compliance while achieving reasonable cost levels and meeting employee expectations?


Hear an engaging panel of CFOs, HR Executives and Healthcare Experts share best practices on how to survive and even thrive in today’s complex healthcare environment.

Learning Objectives:

Gain an understanding of trends in healthcare delivery and their impact on costs;

Develop an understanding of changing compliance requirements;

Gain insights to trends in costs due to claim submissions and their impact on premiums or self administered plans;

Understand changing employee healthcare benefit expectations and strategies employers are applying to increase retention levels
