What was your first experience at a large industry convention? I just attended my first National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) convention this week and it definitely did not disappoint. From legislative updates and professional development to networking and awards celebrations, it was a full event.
But, the most amazing aspect was seeing our association grapple with the current industry challenges and discuss innovative solutions.
I’m sharing our team’s top seven takeaways from this year’s NAHU convention…
I don’t get a chance to attend a ton of insurance conferences, but I always love to go! It gives me a chance to hear what’s going on in the industry, and to meet up with our clients, vendors and brokers.
The Texas Association of Health Underwriters conference was last week and we took some of our newer marketing and service team members so they could have a chance to do the same.
“Piece of cake,” I thought when I was asked a few weeks ago to write an article in early October about the upcoming presidential election. I was confident that, one month before Election Day, we’d have a pretty good idea who our next president will be and how his or her proposals will affect the health insurance industry. Boy was I wrong.
Did you make it to San Diego for the BenefitsPRO Expo? From machine learning to the Broker of the Year Panel, it was a terrific 3 days of connecting with benefits experts from all over the country.
If you were there, maybe your mind is still swirling with ideas. If not, we believe sharing is caring and hope this recap helps to fill you in.
Below is a compiled list of 10 takeaways from our team....
Has Alexa changed your life yet? Vacuum the floor, start the dishwasher, feed the cat, clean the litter box, order more paper towels and lower the thermostat. That’s just a few items from the to-do list I handed over to Artificial Intelligence today – and all without one manual click or key stroke. Whew, no more straining my index finger to push all those buttons.
Health Insurance giant Cigna announced on Thursday that it has agreed to buy Express Scripts, the nation's largest pharmacy benefit manager (PBM). This is yet another blockbuster deal that continues to shake the healthcare landscape.
I was sick for over 3 weeks and nothing was helping. I learned my employer gave us freshbenies for free so I tried it.
I was able to set an appointment time for a doctor to call me (since I was at work).
I got the call in 10 minutes and had the cough meds and an antibiotic sent right over to my pharmacy.
The doctor that helped me was super friendly and even had me laughing a few times. This is such a great service :)
