When interactions between patients and healthcare professionals, insurers and pharmacists are supported by a whole data set, they can help further improve the patient’s overall health journey.
Charles Lewis and Sanjay Cherian

We are looking at approaches to address healthcare issues for plan members upstream to avoid costly downstream circumstances such as high-cost drugs, leaves of absence or additional healthcare services.

Simply increasing the dollar amount of mental health benefits only helps address the cost barrier. Unfortunately, it doesn’t help move the needle on stigma or access.
Mark Rolnick and Ken Cahill

We need to look after mental health as part of our everyday in the workplace and make it a positive part of the watercooler conversation.

We’re piloting a virtual care service as we speak. It will give plan members immediate access to a doctor or nurse through chats and videoconferences.

Our mandate is to differentiate ourselves by focusing on the safe and responsible use of cannabis in the workplace. We will strive to have medical cannabis become a paid benefit, so we can help break the devastating cycle of opiate use and abuse.
Angelo Tsebelis & Dr. Peter Blecher

If we can incorporate medically supervised cannabis into the benefit plans of most large employers, I believe we can help displace the rampant use of opiates and sleep medications.

Private debt can provide excess risk-adjusted yields compared to corporate credit in the public market, as well as diversification because the private market has types of debt—for example, project finance and mid-market debt—that aren't accessible through the public market.
Phil Gillin & Candace Shaw

Private debt markets have evolved over the past few years and credit analysis has improved significantly, so private debt investors can have the assurance of high credit quality.

We've moved from an environment in which many plans offered 30 or more investment options to one in which most offer 10 to 16. I think the ideal is even lower.
Shawn A. Cohen and Sarah E. Donahue
It's encouraging to see that target-date funds are now a top choice for the default fund… It's imperative that we have a default fund that is appropriate for investors.
