Recap from the Road
Our Rick Scheel recently attended the State & Local Government Benefits Association (SALGBA) 37th National Conference. He shared some of his highlighted learnings for us to include here. 
This year’s conference included large self-funded State and Local Government business entities from across the US. The central theme of the event was centered around new and innovative ideas in employee and retiree benefits. Participants saw presentations and were engaged in discussions surrounding Predictive Modeling, Analytics, Wellness, Behavioral Health, Telemedicine, Healthcare navigation, Pharmacy benefits and many other topics.   

One of the most compelling presentations came from Travis Tolley at the Utah Public Employee Health Plan who shared specifics on how they reduced their Pharmacy PMPM spend by hiring subject matter experts and completely re-negotiating their PBM contract, along with implementing an Rx tourism program into Mexico.  

Catherine Bass from Onlife Health presented a powerful presentation with Michael Booth , from the Maine Education Association Benefits Trust, on the dos and don’ts of implementing a culture of Wellness. The session focused on program design, incentives and a client case study showing the results after two years of implementation.

Next years’ SALGBA event will be held in Louisville KY and will be held April 5th-8th.

APH is uniquely positioned to help state and local government benefits entities better manage not only their current employees, but also their retiree populations.
For any questions related to Rickss’ experience and learnings at this conference, please feel free to reach out to us at (888) 600-7566 or marketing@mypoindexter.com .
Blog Insights

As our leadership team read the recent uChicago News article titled “ Workplace wellness programs fail to improve health, study finds ,” we felt compelled to share our counterpoints based on decades of experience supporting wellness and well-being programs that do drive quantifiable and significant results.

There are so many definitions of "workplace wellness" that we hope people won't over-generalize after seeing this article and study. Our clients are experiencing strong, measurable health and wellness program results due to analytics-driven proactive outreach and support.   Click here to read more. 

April was Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, and April 11th was World Parkinson’s Day.
In honor of this, we wanted to spread awareness of the diseases’ prevalence and information relative to best management practices.
