The SIIA National Conference & Expo is the world’s largest event focused exclusively on the self-insurance/alternative risk transfer marketplace, typically attracting more than 1,700 attendees from throughout the United States and from a growing number of countries around the world. The program features more than 40 educational sessions designed to help employers and their business partners identify and maximize the value of self-insurance solutions.
We’ll cover self-insured group health plans from every angle, including plan design and cost containment, financial risk transfer, broker involvement and ACA compliance. Extra content has been incorporated this year that should be of specific interest to TPA executives and their key management teams. And you won’t want to miss our panel discussion sessions featuring top thought leaders talking about the future of the self-insurance marketplace.
Another focus will be stop-loss captive programs (also known as employee benefit group captives). An increasing number of smaller and mid-sized employers have been considering self-insured group health plans and stop-loss captive programs can help facilitate this transition. SIIA has become the recognized industry leader in this fast-growing captive insurance market niche and the session speakers for this topic area will be many of the industry’s top experts.
Also within the Alternative Risk Transfer track, additional sessions will focus on Enterprise Risk Captives, also known as 831(b) captives, which have become an increasingly popular self-insurance solution for many companies.
Given the rapidly involving business and regulatory environment for group workers’ compensation self-insured funds (SIGs), we have incorporated a series of roundtable sessions where SIG leaders from around the country will provide a unique opportunity to share perspectives on how their organization should be positioning themselves for future success. These SIG-focused roundtables will be supplemented by additional timely sessions of interest to both groups and individual workers’ compensation self-insurers.
Rounding out the program will be some sessions addressing key self-insured issues, including ACA compliance requirements, for companies with global operations and/or workforces, giving the conference an added international flavor.
This top notch educational program will be supplemented with quality networking events, including an exhibit hall with more than 150 companies showcasing a wide variety of innovative products and services designed specifically for self-insured entities. If you are searching for a self-insurance business partner, they will be waiting for you at this event.
You can get a head start on your networking by participating in the conference golf tournament the morning of Sunday, October 5. And then cap things off with an incredible social event on the closing night (Tuesday, 10/7) so be sure that you make your travel arrangements accordingly.
If self-insurance is important to you in any way, this is simply a must-attend event.
