Wednesday, September 29th | 9:00am-10:30am

 

The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) brought about many changes to the health insurance field, including market reforms that were intended to provide greater protection and enhanced benefits for consumers. Most working Americans with health insurance coverage obtain it through an employer plan (or through some association with an employer plan). This Continuing Education Course discusses how an
Employer Sponsored ICHRA works as part of an employee’s benefit plan.

Thursday, Sept 9, 2021 | 9:00-10:00am

 

Is my organization offering the right global benefits? What are the gaps in coverage? How do we even get started offering global benefits? Now more than ever, multinational corporations (MNCs) face constant challenges as they globalize and expand their diverse and international workforce. This introductory course reviews the multiplicative factors of global benefit package: who’s covered, who’s building the programs, what benefits are offered and how exactly are these programs implemented. This course concludes with a current and future state analysis, offering insight into the evolution of global benefit supporting those employees that live, work and travel outside of their home country.

The Oral-Systemic Connection & Why Aren’t All Dental Claims Paid?

Tuesday, May 25th , 2021

9:00-11am

The GPAHU is pleased to offer this 2 credit Continuing Education course presented by

Valerie Fleming, RDH, United Concordia’s Oral Wellness Consultant

United Concordia’s Oral Wellness Consultant, Valerie Fleming, RDH. Your smile is one of your most valuable assets. However, good oral health is more than just your smile and benefits both your smile and your whole body. This presentation covers a range of dental health topics including: prevention and treatment of common dental diseases, keeping your mouth healthy, fear of the dentist, the mouth-body connection, and strategies for incorporating dental health into overall wellness programs.

 

Additionally, Dental benefits are different than medical benefits and most of us do what our dentists say without question.  Everybody wants to think that their dentists are looking out for the patients’ best interests.  Yet are all of those services really necessary?  If my mouth is healthy, do I really need x-rays every 6 months or 12 months?  If that cracked tooth is not causing any problems, do I really need an extensive crown on it?  What happens when my dentist bills for a service that is not appropriate, or not necessary, and who makes that determination?  These questions will be answered and much more.
