    I. Welcome

    II. New Health Insurance Alternatives – How to Incorporate in Request for Proposals

                    * Presented by Bill Rusteberg, RiskManagers.us
    Description: learn the "secrets" the health care and insurance industry has kept hidden for years resulting in higher premiums, less choice, and lower benefits borne by consumers. Don’t rely on inexperienced insurance agents and insurance carriers whose vested interests are not in the best interests of plan members/sponsors. Empower yourself to negotiate better terms, by learning market alternatives and how to incorporate them into the RFP process.
