Employer Designed Self-Insured Healthcare Conference Offers Unique Perspective
Date:1/28/2009

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Savvy Self-Funding Healthcare Conference and Expo will provide employers and health plan sponsors the opportunity to discuss creative healthcare options during a June 1-3, 2009 conference in Kansas City, Missouri.

The conference is unique, as it is designed and sponsored by an actual employer -- not a conference promoter. Karrie Andes, SPHR, Director of Human Resources, created the event to help educate employers and plan sponsors on self-funded health plans. Ms. Andes works for Deffenbaugh Industries, Inc. & Affiliates, a trash service provider in Greater Kansas City. Andes explained, "By self-funding our healthcare, we've been able to beat the trends. I want other employers to know that solutions don't always mean passing on costs or absorbing them. By providing more education, managers know what questions to ask and that generates bottom-line savings."

The conference includes a full array of exhibitors -- carriers, brokers, TPAs, PBMs, and other industries working hard to offset rising healthcare expenses. Presenters include speakers from The Center for Health Value Innovation, The Employee Benefits Security Administration, Industry Professionals, and Employers, along with breakout sessions to customize learning.

"I allow both health carriers and insurance brokers to exhibit at the expo. If you're managing a health plan, you need as many options and ideas as you can get your hands on," Andes said. "We had attendees from all across the nation attend our event in 2007. I had employers coming up to me, shaking my hand, telling me that our conference was the best they'd ever attended. The worst thing you can do is go to a conference and feel you wasted your time. This won't happen at our conference... you'll leave feeling energized and inspired!"

Andes added, "We cover the tough topics that others won't touch, like income transparency and waste in the healthcare industry. Employers need to know how to save money, and these sessions point out areas of opportunity."

The Savvy Conference promises to please -- with registration at only $539, it's a top-notch value. It will be held at The Westin Crown Center Hotel, in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. For information see the website at http://www.savvyemployerconference.com or call 1-800-226-5205.
