Chicago EBRI/ABC Briefing & Networking Breakfast

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Location TBD

Hosted by Walgreens Boots Alliance

Fee lawsuits, changes to health care laws, ongoing shifts in fiduciary requirements—on the one hand, some argue that employers would like nothing better than to reduce their role in providing retirement and health benefits. On the other hand, with workers facing greater financial stress than ever, Baby Boomers heading for retirement, and the emergence of Millennials as the next huge wave within the labor force, employee benefits have never been more important than they are today.

The Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and the American Benefits Council (ABC) invite you to participate in a breakfast roundtable to discuss both the short term policy outlook and, longer term, what the research data reveals about the future of employee benefits. Be among the first professionals to gain access to this important information, then discuss it with your peers and industry experts.

Discussion Topics
  • HSA Balances and Use of Health Care Services
  • Deductibles and Use of Low-Value Health Care Services
  • ABC Research Report – “American Benefits Legacy: The Unique Value of Employer Sponsorship”
  • What’s in it For Employers? EBRI’s Financial Wellbeing Survey
  • Implications of possible policy and other initiatives—including auto portability
  • ABC Legislative Outlook for the remainder of this year and the new Congress
  • Lori Lucas, CFA, President and CEO of EBRI
  • James Klein, President of the American Benefits Council
  • Paul Fronstin, Director of EBRI’s Health Research and Education Program
