Twenty to 30 years ago, defined or limited benefit plans were the norm.  Today, however, most health care companies are pitching comprehensive plans as the only alternative.  As a result of this shift, many employees as well as small and medium-sized companies are being left behind due to the rising premiums, co-insurance and annual deductibles.  Learn how to effectively close this gap via this unique session which explores:

· How a Defined Benefit plan works & how it can reduce costs for companies and employees

· Stark differences between today's innovative Defined Benefit plans & yesterday's 'mini-meds'

· Potential impact of PPACA (Health Reform) legislation

· How to eliminate employee first-dollar co-pays or annual deductibles via Group Indemnity; and

· Effective ways to leverage Defined Benefit plans for self-funded groups or Taft-Hartley Funds.
