Have you ever picked up a claim file and cringed when you saw an inappropriate comment knowing that a plaintiff’s attorney will most likely display it on a huge screen in the courtroom?

2.2

Social Security Past, Present and Future - Del Lago 2 (Speakers: Christopher Doherty, Barbara Mountain)

We will include a discussion of the current political climate and the potential impact on the SS Disability Program and the possible impact on insurers and claimants. This is a must see presentation, as it literally affects each and every one of you, and it is a hot button issue in the 2016 presidential election.

2.3

The New ERISA Regulations-Everything You Need to Know to Stay Compliant - Marbella 4 (Speaker: Joshua Bachrach, Rick Denman)
For the first time since 2000, the Department of Labor has proposed significant changes to the ERISA regulations that govern claim handling. When enacted, these changes will impact the information an administrator needs to disclose to a claimant during an appeal as well as the timing of its decisions. The proposed regulations also state that if a deadline is missed, the manner in which the court reviews a decision may be altered. This program will address, in detail, the changes to the regulations, procedures for reviewing claims, and what administrators must do to provide claimants with a “full and fair review.” Come join us as we discuss how this impacts your handling of LTD claims.

2.4

Is Mental Health Parity Driving You Crazy? Learn the Latest Developments in this Rapidly Evolving Area - Cordova 4 (Speaker: Bryan Bolton)
The Mental Health Parity Act broadly mandates equality between physical and mental health care benefits under group health plans. Equality, however, is in the eye of the beholder and significant disputes involve what constitutes parity. Is financial parity all that is required? Is continuous monitoring of mental health claims a violation? What about level of care guidelines for mental health care claims-are they permissible? How is parity enforced, who can enforce, and who is liable?

2.6

Rescission: Attacks and Comebacks - Palazzo C (Speakers: Melissa Cowan, Adam Formus)
To rescind or not to rescind? Whether you’re a novice or a veteran of life, health, or disability claims, you will face this rescission conundrum.

Don’t miss out!

2.7

Preparing for Discovery and Being Deposed - Del Lago 1 (Speakers: Geoffrey Tong, Lauren Gold, Ernest Smith)
Today’s world is becoming more and more litigious. Cases are won and lost in discovery. While many cases may be settled before they ever get to court, all claim associates should be prepared to be deposed. This session will prepare individuals for the discovery process. There will be an overview to gain greater understanding of the purpose and process of claim litigation and discovery. Participants will learn what they should know before they’re ever told a deposition is required and how to prepare in advance of the deposition, what information to gather and retain, his or her obligations and role, as well as the do’s and don’ts. For those with knowledge of depositions and the discovery process, there is always something new to learn. This workshop is the precursor to “Oh no! I’ve been scheduled to be deposed."

2.8

What You Do Matters: How to Engage Your Team with Connection, Compassion, and Collaboration to Drive Satisfaction and Success - Segura 5 (Speakers: Wendy Berndt, Kim Houston, Devon Wallace)

This workshop will help claim organizations connect the dots between thevision of the company and the role of claims while improving the satisfaction and engagement for your team members. We will discuss ways to link claims and other departments in your organization, break down silos, improve engagement, and build on and celebrate successes in a critical role that keeps the promises of your company.

Sample topics for discussion: digital signatures, direct deposit, online claim forms and submission, e-delivery, work from home and jet claims processing.

3.2

Implementing and Operationalizing Fraud Analytics and Beyond - Del Lago 3-4 (Speaker: Jim Hulett)
Insurance carriers are making investments into transformational technology at a faster pace than ever before to better leverage powerful data resources and analytics. If properly implemented and operationalized, organizations that make these investments can derive more effective insights and take more informed actions regarding all aspects of business, in particular for fraud risk. With the relative newness of analytics being implemented more broadly in the SIU industry and within Claims, there are critical considerations and strategies regarding capabilities, future growth path, organizational change management and internal-external collaboration that ensures a successful technology transformation and roadmap forward. This session will layout foundational concepts defining advanced analytic solutions; how analytic solutions can optimize efficiency, effectiveness and impact; and, how can an organization integrate and successfully adapt their usage in daily operations.

3.3

Why Can’t This Lawsuit Go Away? Del Lago 1 (Speaker: Adam Formus, Louis P. Di Giaimo)
Have you ever wondered what attorneys do behind the scenes, and why lawsuits seem to cost too much and go on too long? You may know what a deposition is, but do you know why you must testify? Do you want to know why you must dig through documents and answer questions about an old claim on short notice when you are busy with so many other things? Experienced trial attorneys dissect a lawsuit from start to finish, explaining each stage of the process and why and when they need your expertise. Learn what “discovery” is and how it can make a suit drag on for months and years, what a “motion” is and why it is so important, why simple lawsuits can become enormously expensive, why a case may settle even when the company did nothing wrong, and why your attorneys sometimes can’t make a lawsuit “go away.”

3.4

Will the insurance industry distinguish between medicinal and recreational use? Got the munchies now? Don’t worry-we’ll have that covered!

4.6

Organized Groups and Life Insurance Fraud - Marbella 2 (Speaker: Don MacDiarmid)
On the heels of viatical agreement experience, various cultural, ethnic and other groups have learned how to manipulate the life insurance process and turn it into a tax free income generator. With the help of unscrupulous agents, they obtain life insurance policies on the elderly and sick members of the community, often without their consent or knowledge, based largely on fraud and misrepresentation. These groups use life policies as negotiable investment vehicles and unfortunately, insured’s are sometimes murdered so life insurance proceeds may be collected. In this session, we will present case scenarios of how various groups manipulate the system to obtain life insurance proceeds and provide some examples of how they sometimes lead to tragic results.

We will discuss metrics important to running a life claim operation, how data analytics and measures of success will allow you to demonstrate the value claims brings to your company, and how to paint the picture at all levels of your organization.

What’s In Your Toolbox? Building an Approach to Self Reported Symptom Claims - Del Lago 2 (Speakers: Margaret Mangan, Pam Wiedmeyer)
We often view self reported symptom claims with about as much enthusiasm as we do a root canal. Often there is a myriad of symptoms, no unifying diagnosis, multiple providers and specialties, and a wide array of treatments - both conventional and unconventional. We all employ a variety of resources to help us manage claims on a daily basis, however, self reported symptom claims are unique in that they frequently require us to exhaust all of the tools in our toolbox in order to gather the necessary information. Presenters will lay the foundation for developing a successful approach to managing self reported symptom claims by identifying WHAT tools to use, WHEN and WHY to use them, and HOW to incorporate the information into an integrative assessment.
