Supplemental voluntary health insurance professionals gathered in Philadelphia September 5-7

The National Association of Supplemental Benefit Insurance (NASBI), the nation’s leading advocacy organization for supplemental health benefits professionals, hosted its 16th annual Supplemental Benefits Forum  in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The program offered three tracks to choose from:

  1. The Critical Illness/Accident and Hospital Indemnity track covered 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 highlighted the latest developments in these specialties and looked at innovative ways to market what some consider to be lower-growth products.
  3. The General track offered 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.
