Do you remember when Haven Healthcare was launched? 

It was February 2018 when Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase announced a collaboration to do something about healthcare for their employees. 

I shared my initial thoughts in this article focused on transparency, tech innovation, and the decision to form their collaboration as a non-profit entity. 

So, what do we know after 18 months? I’m sharing 4 updates…

I just returned from the phenomenal 2019 NAHU (National Association of Health Underwriters) Annual convention in beautiful San Diego!

Like many of you, we attend quite a few employee benefits conferences every year, but Q4Live is one of our favorites (click here to see our Top 10 List). This conference is about personal development and networking for advisors committed to professional growth.

Did you make it to BenefitsPRO in Miami last week? If so, you heard a LOT of talk about disruption. Maybe you’re thinking this has become a buzzword with little meaning. But what I found most refreshing about the conference was the amount of discussion around the execution of disruptive ideas. 

Today I’m sharing 3 approaches of disruptors that were highlighted at the conference...

On April 14th, Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its eighth and final season. It’s said to be one of the most anticipated in the history of television. In preparation for GOT’s return, I recently re-watched the entire series. 

As I watched the previous 67 episodes, I was struck by some of the lessons that could be applied to our industry and specifically freshbenies. I’m sharing four fun parallels…

I grew up in Canada and have been speaking on the government-controlled healthcare topic throughout the employee benefits industry for 20+ years. 

Like a horror movie, the topic is screaming “I’m baaaaack!” And it is - in a big way.

Brokers, what industry conferences will you attend this year? I’ve been to HUNDREDS over my 25+ years in the employee benefits industry. 

Some were funny, engaging, and full of ideas while others were dull, full of schlocky commercials, and an extreme waste of time. If you’ve attended more than three conventions, I’m sure you know what I mean.

Do you remember when telehealth was a new idea? Maybe it’s difficult to recall, but less than 10 years ago, we were often asked if telehealth was legal!

Saving money is one thing, but the convenience is most important for me. I use the freshbenies app to stay at work and get health solutions with no lost time waiting to be seen and no visit fee.

 

 



 

My co-worker was charged $160 at the local clinic for a respiratory infection. I told him he could’ve saved that $160 if he’d used freshbenies. He downloaded the app immediately.

 



Officers don’t get paid what they’re worth. I’ll ensure every new hire from this day forward gets the freshbenies app on their phone.
