Selling benefits is just part of a benefit broker’s job. Even more important is servicing their clients: solving problems; answering questions; and delivering advice. This is the “added-value” brokers bring to the policies we sell. As with the service center of any company (looking at you Time Warner) agencies sometimes lose sight of how important client interaction is to their success. James Lloyd is a nationally recognized speaker who has taught businesses large and small how to elevate their customer service. His 7 Keys to Dazzling Customer Service course will take your agency to the next level. In short, this is a meeting you won’t want to miss.  Neither will your support staff (you know, the ones dealing with clients every day). That’s why we’ve made it affordable to bring your entire team.

Self-fundedSelf-funding is an increasingly popular option for employers looking to control benefit costs. The key selling point is straightforward: when claims are less than expected the savings are refunded to the employer, not kept by the insurance company. When claims are higher than anticipated excess loss coverage can step in to protect the employer. It’s even possible to design self funded plans that closely mimic fully-insured medical policies. Former NAHU president David Fear presents self funding basics . Learn about the role of third party administrators, the mechanics of stop loss coverage and the impact of the ACA and state laws on self funding. If they haven’t already, your clients will soon be asking about self-funding. Learn what you need to know to properly advise them.
