General Session
A New Hope presented by Darrin Owens, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting

Please join Darrin Owens as he sets the stage for our day of educational sessions about identifying and managing risks in retirement and health plans during uncertain times. It is natural to feel uncertain when changes are on the horizon. Darrin will use the clearer vision of hindsight to discuss past benefits-related laws that developed differently over time than originally intended. He will use the lessons learned from those developments to provide some insight into what might be expected for employee benefit plans under the new administration.

Breakout Session 1A - Health
Cliffhanger presented by Karen Johnson, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting and Margaret Lennon, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting with Matt Pavesi, Vice President, Segal Consulting moderating

A look at current and proposed legislation and trends that are having an impact on the delivery and overall cost of health care. Understanding the need to comply with governmental mandates and agency initiatives while attempting to control overall claims costs through plan design and alternative strategies can help Trustees provide and maintain quality benefits to plan participants.

Breakout Session 1B - Retirement
Hidden Figures presented by Susan Boyle, Senior Vice President and Actuary, Segal Consulting, Josh Kaplan, Vice President and Actuary, Segal Consulting and Jon Scarpa, Assistant Actuary, Segal Consulting with Bob Ressegue, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting moderating

A look at the status of current multiemployer DB Pension Plans and where potential risks, as well as rewards, may lie. Understanding these factors (or risks) is a crucial step toward being able to appropriately manage retirement plans in order for Trustees to make decisions needed to achieve the specific goals of each plan.

Breakout Session 2A - Health
A Simple Plan presented by Karen Johnson, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting and Margaret Lennon, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting with Matt Pavesi, Vice President, Segal Consulting, moderating

An overview of health care reform to repeal and replace provisions of the Affordable Care Act, as well as a review of cost containment strategies, both in plan design, network development and maintenance, and alternative contracting with insurers and providers.

Breakout Session 2B - Retirement
Back to the Future presented by Susan Boyle, Senior Vice President and Actuary, Segal Consulting, Josh Kaplan, Vice President and Actuary, Segal Consulting and Jon Scarpa, Assistant Actuary, Segal Consulting with Bob Ressegue, Senior Vice President, Segal Consulting moderating

A look at innovative solutions available to troubled plans that can be used to help create a more promising future. Beyond the traditional defined benefit pension plan, a number of alternative plan designs and actuarial alternatives exist. Each option can be viewed in light of the plan objectives and priorities, making each situation unique.
