Small business owners know it’s a big responsibility to make sense of the health insurance options for employees and offer them the best plans available. The challenge can become even greater due to the annual changes in insurance requirements, guidelines and trends. It’s important to stay on top of things to continually make the best choices for the company.
Now, there’s an opportunity to better understand this complex issue. The Health Benefits & Compliance Conference, which takes place at Livonia’s VisTaTech Center on September 13, will bring attendees up to speed on health insurance in the post-Affordable Care Act world. Here are some of the insights the event will provide:
- Learn about new trends, like how private exchanges can help small businesses save money while still offering great benefits to employees
- Understand how technology can help streamline health care
- Clear up confusion on topics like the new overtime wage requirements
- Get an update on the current compliance measures
- Be inspired by other small businesses that have creative perks for employees
The tools and techniques covered will be specifically geared towards organizations with less than 100 employees.
