The Role of the Insurance Underwriter in Healthcare
Special Guest Speaker Paul Kane, Vice President of Underwriting and Chief Risk Officer at Independence Blue Cross will explore the central role of the Underwriter.
Underwriting plays a critical role in evaluating risk and establishing pricing that corresponds to the risk assessed. Gain valuable insight to understand how the mechanics of underwriting apply to both fully insured and partially self-insured health plans. Understanding the underwriting process specific to your market segment will better prepare you for consultative discussions with your clients that will give you an edge over the less informed consultant. Paul’s presentation will review both mid and large group market fully-insured underwriting.
Additionally, Carol Seid, Regional Group Manager for SYMETRA Life Insurance Company, will walk us though a self-insured stop-loss proposal. Chris Handley, Regional Sales Director of SAVOY, will facilitate this program.
