Event Details:



This may be one of the worst economic years we face in our careers.  There are ways to maintain benefits and reduce costs by working together as public employers.  If you are a Personnel, HR, Labor Relations or Finance Director, Superintendent of schools, Risk, Benefits or Business Manager, Board of Education Chairman, or Selectmen, This seminar is for you. 


Do you have to comply with new and expensive state mandates?

What tax issues arise in compliance? Also how can you help lower premium taxes for self insured municipalities?


Find out how many municipalities have partnered together with a national Rx provider to provide lower cost prescriptions and better monitoring systems to help their employees stay safe and healthy. 


Do you know tests are available to find out if specific prescription and dosages will actually work for an employees condition before years of costly treatment are embarked on?


Do you know which drugs are coming off patent and how to use this information to lower your costs?


To date, coalition members have saved more than $3,000,000 per year in Rx costs.


Do you offer employees dental or life insurance?  If so, coalition purchasing can save you as much as 5-15% for dental and much more for life insurance.


Do you wonder where to turn with difficult benefit situations, or during health insurance negotiations, or how another municipality has handled an issue?  Find out how you can be part of this statewide group regardless of how large or small your organization is, and if you are self or fully insured.  This event is free, but you must pre register with Bernie Welch at BWelch@ci.new-london.ct.us by Wednesday January 14th to attend.
