NASBI, the Nation’s Leading Insurance Advocacy Group, to Host Annual Supplemental Benefits Forum

Supplemental voluntary health insurance professionals will gather in Philadelphia September 5-7

The National Association of Supplemental Benefit Insurance (NASBI), the nation’s leading advocacy organization for supplemental health benefits professionals, will host its 16th annual Supplemental Benefits Forum this September in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This forum has grown to become the must-attend event for insurance specialists from across the country, with professional development opportunities for those in product development, underwriting, marketing and sales, claims, risk management, and administration.

I’m so excited about the breadth of information that we are going to be offering at this year’s forum. Every year, we build on what we’ve learned and try to add unique and exciting new sessions. I believe we truly have something for everyone this year.” -Katherine Johnsen Read, Director of Accident and Health Product Development at MetLife, NASBI Vice President, and chair of the 2018 Supplemental Benefits Forum.

This year’s program will offer three tracks to choose from:

  1. The Critical Illness/Accident and Hospital Indemnity track will cover key aspects of these supplemental benefits, including foundational information, deep dives into industry experience and innovative ideas on future product development.
  2. The Life/Short Term Disability track will highlight the latest developments in these specialties and will look at innovative ways to market what some consider to be lower-growth products.
  3. The General track will offer a host of opportunities to learn about compliance, corporate responsibility, technology, value-added services, industry innovations, and more!

This is absolutely one of the premier events in the insurance industry. This is an opportunity to get a wealth of industry knowledge in one place — and do some high-level networking as well.” -Darrell Spell, member of the NASBI Board of Directors and Principal of Milliman, Inc.

The Supplemental Benefits Forum will be held at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Philadelphia from September 5 through 7, 2018. Registration is now open, with special pricing available for a limited time.
