Speaker Questionnaire
What is the biggest thing you learned in 2020?

You never know what life will throw at you. Flexibility and the ability to quickly adapt to change are a must.

What do you feel are the two most important benefits or areas that need to be a top priority in 2021?

Although not a new concept, there has been an increase in demand for quality mental health and emotional wellbeing programs. It is also crucial to review current benefit programs to ensure they help meet the needs of a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Can you share a story on an area of your healthcare program or employee benefits where you were able to create significant savings or stop costs from rising?

Through our partnership with ICUBA, we have been able to offer innovative health programs while keeping premium increases substantially below trend. We recently introduced Surgery Plus where eligible members are directed to higher-quality providers for select surgical procedures. The program provides better health outcomes and reduced claims at no cost to the members.

If you could automatically receive a 10-20% reduction in costs in three areas/programs, what would your dream list be?

Pharmacy, especially specialty prescription drugs, oncology and diabetes care.

What is the most innovative program you will focus on in 2021 and/or 2022?

Student loan debt programs.

How are you re-imagining corporate culture & well-being?

As a strategic partner with Rollins' leadership, the Rollins Wellbeing Committee’s mission is dedicated to promote and create a healthy campus community in which to live, learn, teach, work, and visit. As such, we strive to implement a variety of programs that support and enhance a culture of wellbeing.

What virtual care solutions did you roll out during the pandemic? How valuable were they and why?

Prior to the pandemic we already provided telemedicine, including mental healthcare. Demand has greatly increased as a result of the pandemic and trust in virtual care has improved.

If you look at our 3 Moonshots - Costs, Culture, and Care; In one sentence, tell us what would be something positive for us to take from 2020 and bring into this new year?

Employees will remember how they were treated by their employers during the pandemic. We saw many employers become more innovative than ever before and provide valuable programs to help their employees and their families during a catastrophic period. Let's continue to look forward and be innovative!
