Title:

Evaluating Your Third-Party Administrator: Are You Getting What You're Paying For?

SKU:WC-1026419
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Description:

Many employers, both private and municipal, offer benefit programs to their employees. They focus on maximizing the benefit offerings while minimizing the associated costs.

To aid them in structuring and administering these programs, they secure the services of a third party administrator. Such third party administrators or ‘TPA's' strive to deliver administrative services in accordance with their service agreements, but also make efforts to avoid taking on a fiduciary role or offer guidance beyond that which they are contractually obligated to provide.

Some fall short of even this benchmark, failing to deliver and exposing their clients (and themselves) to legal liability, whilst others go above and beyond - creating exceptional value for their clients.

The information in this course will enable any and all entities responsible for identifying, selecting, and monitoring their TPA to track performance and assess results, as well as identify opportunities to create additional value in collaboration with their TPA. The material will explain how to avoid regulatory and other pitfalls, while ensuring every aspect of a successful benefit plan is being handled.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
