    Our program will be presented by Alexander Szabo, Jr., Executive Director of the Employers’ Coalition on Health (ECOH) and one of RRHRPA’s newest members. This presentation is entitled “The Future of the PPO in Managing Healthcare Expenses,” and is based on Al’s extensive experience in the health care industry and will provide an update on the role PPOs will play in the future.  Al briefly writes about his program:

    “I will be providing my view of how PPOs need to morph to remain relevant in the new environment of health care in IL.  With ever-changing contracting methodologies, the rise of Medicare based pricing, the significantly expanding list of expensive procedures and the changes to health care driven by technology, PPOs need to focus on those areas that account for the most costly care in addition to providing broad-based discounts.

    While members most directly affected by PPOs, both through insurance companies and independent sources, may find this presentation most relevant, those securing discounts from other sources should find relevance from the methodologies discussed.”

    The Railside menu is available on their website  Each attendee will order and pay for their own lunch.
