We live in a world that is in a constant flux of change, which causes disruption to people and organizations.

Why Rare Disease Drugs Matter to Private Payers

(held May 4, 2021)

There are already close to 100 drugs for rare diseases (DRDs) that consume almost 10% of all prescription drug spending. By definition these drugs cost at least $100,000 annually. Industry pooling is poorly structured to address the rapid growth in these important therapies which save or extend lives. A national strategy is being developed, but it is not clear what role and responsibility private drug plans should take, and who speaks for this very diverse group. This session will explore the impact of DRDs on private plans, risk mitigation, and how private payers might influence a national DRD policy.

The Drug Triad That Could Overwhelm Plans

(held March 30, 2021)

Reformulary Group CEO and former Ontario ‘drug czar’ Helen Stevenson joins CPBI to talk about new and existing therapies that could overwhelm employer benefit plans – gene therapies, cancer drugs and diabetes treatment. Would it surprise you to know that a gene therapy costing more than $2.8 million per patient has recently been approved in Canada, or that some private plans are paying claims for cancer drugs that are typically covered by cancer agencies? As more and more expensive drugs roar up the regulatory pipeline, understanding their cost and how plans can be informed and manage their impact has never been more important.

There are 29 million Canadians with health and life insurance in Canada.

This is why OLHI was established in 2002, under the supervision of the insurance regulators across Canada and funded by insurance companies - to build confidence in the sector by providing consumers a free-of-charge, independent, impartial and timely dispute resolution service. OLHI is governed by a Board, the majority of whom are independent directors.

Financial Wellness for the Ages: Many Generations, One Common Thread   

(held November 25, 2020)

It’s a fact that when it comes to personal finances, our age dictates much about what we want to know. For example, someone new to the job is probably less interested in retirement planning than someone who already has their last day of work marked in the calendar. However, emerging trends have started to show us that the new hire and the seasoned veteran have a lot more in common than you would think: both can benefit from trends in communication – like the prominence of mobile devices, authenticity in communications, and the growing study of behavioural economics – to enhance their knowledge and ability to make sound financial decisions.

Redefining The Narrative of Older Workers

(held April 15, 2020)

Life expectancy is increasing at a pace that may sustain beyond the actual age of retirement, and some people will not be ready to retire until an advanced aged. In addition, today even if recruiting all of the young people out of school, we will still have a shortage of workers. 

What does this mean for employers and extended benefits providers?  Older workers will stay longer at work. Knowledge retention and loyalty are a plus, but multiple complexities may be present as well. Some of these workers will require support that is likely going to come through the employer’s support directly or through an extended benefits provider, to be able to continue working.
