2nd Quarter Newsletter 2015

On July 16, 2015
The past few months have brought so much intrigue to our industry. Everywhere you looked, something or someone was affecting health care and the insurance industry as a whole. We saw the Supreme Court make a few monumental decisions that will affect how plans are written in the future and the viability of the ACA. We saw interesting court cases placing more potential fiduciary risks upon brokers and administrators. We watched and reacted as more states attempted to limit the ability for smaller employers to self fund their benefits through the use of stop loss coverage and last, but certainly not least, we have seen a monumental increase in the DOL audits to our clients and the industry at large. If there ever was a time that The Phia Group’s services were needed, this is it! There is no question that health claims costs continue to skyrocket and the use of so called wrap discounts on many of these claims isn’t helping to reduce the burden. If you are looking for some innovative options to stand out from the pack, please contact me as there are so many great ways to truly make a powerful impact on behalf of your employer plans. We can save you and your plans significant claim dollars, you just need to strategize and identify your major pain points. The next quarter will continue to be eventful so while you enjoy your summer weather, please be sure to let us know if you need some assistance – we are here for you. Happy reading

On March 25, 2015
Being a fiduciary is serious business. Determining whether you are one can also be very complicated. Case law increasingly establishes that being a fiduciary has more to do with the action one takes, than the contract one signs. Entities working on behalf of self-funded benefit plans may be unknowingly taking on fiduciary status. Are you a fiduciary? What are the advantages and disadvantages of taking on that burden? What can you do to protect yourself?

3rd Quarter Newsletter 2014

On October 7, 2014
Well, the fall is definitely upon us! Over in Boston, leaves are falling, changing to majestic landscapes, and the nights are getting cold; but The Phia Group is just heating up. We have so much information to share with you this newsletter from new service offerings to case law to regulatory changes. One of the things I wanted to share with you is the amazing conference I had the privilege to speak at this past weekend in Oklahoma City; the First Free Market Medical (FMMA) Association conference. It is rare that I am overwhelmed with new information, but this forum did the trick. The goal of the Free Market Medical Association is to bring together physicians, surgeons, providers, facilities, and support businesses to provide necessary resources to promote a successful industry. Its focus is to defend the practice of free market medicine without the intervention of government or other third parties.
