    The Future of Affordable Medical Insurance; Exploring Medical Reimbursement Accounts for Cost Savings

    As the cost of offering employee benefits continue to rise, it has become more and more difficult for schools to maintain a competitive benefits package for our employees.

    In this presentation, Melissa Cerny, Area President for Gallagher Insurance will be discussing the recent migration of many schools towards Medical Expense Reimbursement Accounts, also known as MERPs. While MERPs are similar to Health Reimbursement Accounts, they have unique properties that are allowing many schools to offer zero dollar co-pay plans to employees while actually saving typically 10-15% per year on overall costs. In addition, this MERP arrangement has shown to slow the trend of future renewal increases for most schools.

    Join us and learn about this alternative funding mechanism for employee benefits and how to implement this arrangement for your school.
