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.

Pushback & Counter-Attack – How attorneys, providers, and the government are combating your efforts to contain costs… and what you should be doing about it!!!!
ERISA has been a target of scrutiny since its passage. Rights to subrogation, coordination of benefits, audit claims and enforce plan provisions – though pillars of cost containment – are constantly attacked. Attempts to prudently manage plan assets, though required by federal law, are met with pushback at every level. Now, with the passage of PPACA, old and new methods to maximize plan benefits and minimize costs are challenged. Join The Phia Group’s team of attorneys on Thursday, February 12th at 1PM as they discuss the hurdles we face, both old and new; and what we can do to not only survive, but thrive in the face of such adversity.
IMPLANT WARS: How monitoring provider self-referrals, & negotiating based on actual costs can result in major plan savings!
Those who fail to identify ways to separate themselves from the pack through new, innovative cost containment processes will be left behind. Yet, even the most diligent administrator feels powerless in the face of excessive costs, finding it nearly impossible to negotiate claims with providers, or apply reasonable and appropriate pricing. Thriving requires tackling you plans’ biggest cost drivers; but how can you carve out, monitor, and negotiate “the big claims?” Kick-off the new year by joining The Phia Group’s CEO, Adam V. Russo and his legal team, as they discuss this important topic and introduce you to their newest offering; Implant Cost Pro! This is a webinar not to be missed.
