Register for CE Seminar: Using Hybrid Plans to Control Costs

** NEW Special Date Added – June 19th **
(1.5 CE Credits)

As an advisor, you know that small and mid-sized businesses are constantly juggling the competing priorities of offering employees more flexible benefits vs. cost control. Hybrid Plans allow you, the advisor, to differentiate yourself from the competition. Advisors selling hybrid plans have found that they:

  • Simplify the renewal process
  • Maximize their profit per case
  • Keep away competition

Rather than offering a fixed traditional benefits plan, a hybrid plan design can achieve specific compensation and budget goals. An effective hybrid plan will allow employers to control the costs of their benefits plan while still providing flexibility for employees. Hybrid plans are designed to be less susceptible to premium inflation and less affected by the volumes of claims submitted.

At this session you will learn:

  • How to speak to clients about hybrid plan design
  • How to structure a hybrid plan
  • How to maximize profit in your benefits business
  • How to get started with this immediately
