About FORUM

The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism’s IHC FORUM Conference Series are the only national events 100% dedicated to health care consumerism. Through cutting-edge workshops, general sessions, pre-conference events and networking opportunities, attendees leave with relevant insights from industry thought leaders and policymakers on how to navigate defined contributions and exchanges, cut costs, engage employees and comply with current healthcare laws. FORUM-goers also have an unprecedented opportunity to learn from peers who have successfully adopted healthcare consumerism programs.

In addition, attendees become eligible for IHC University’s Certified in HealthCare Consumerism (CHCC) designation as well as HR CEU credits. The IHC FORUM allows HR professionals, wellness program directors, brokers, consultants, TPA’s and regional health plan administrators to share leading practices, exchange ideas and arrive at real, implementable solutions.

“Why Should I Attend?”

The FORUM is essential for anyone involved in your organization’s health and benefits decisions. Bring your benefits management staff, wellness program directors and brokers.

Health and Benefits Management Professionals and Wellness Program Directors

How can I reduce costs and administrative burdens? How will new healthcare legislation impact my company? How can I get my employees on board with a consumer-directed plan? These are the most pressing questions on the minds of HR professionals and wellness program directors. As the only event 100% devoted to healthcare consumerism, the FORUM gives you information that’s “need to know,” not just “nice to know.” In just a day and a half, experts, lawmakers and peers with real-life experience will directly address your “paint points” and help you avoid common pitfalls. Register now to get practical, actionable solutions at a fraction of the cost of other conferences.

Brokers, Advisors and Consultants

With more employers demanding dynamic health and benefits management programs, you can’t afford not to stay current on the latest healthcare consumerism trends. Educate yourself. The FORUM’s broker workshops will give you a holistic, forward-thinking view of the healthcare consumerism landscape, empowering you to speak intelligently to clients about wellness programs, supplemental health care and other innovative product offerings. And don’t worry about missing out on sales calls—you’ll be sitting right across the table from the prospects, peers and solutions providers you want to meet.

Health Plan Administrators

The new healthcare law has spawned more self-funded plans than ever before. Put yourself at an advantage by learning what employers want, and designing integrated plans to serve them better. The FORUM will help you build new relationships and new revenue streams. You’ll learn how to incorporate HSAs, health reimbursement accounts, wellness programs and supplemental healthcare into your current plan offerings to gain new clients and retain existing ones. Stay on the cusp on the health and benefits management revolution. Be sure to bring your clients.
