    EP 5 - LIVE Audience: Paradigm and Structure Member’s Meetings

    We took the bold step of recording this episode before a “live audience” at our recent Paradigm and Structure Members’ Meetings. Andrew Clayton and guest host Jack Longstreth have a lively conversation with two great CFOs: Jill Kindell of Miami Valley Steel and Chris Bissinger of Essential Ingredients.

    This episode is chock-full of advice from ParetoHealth Members who have seen phenomenal success in controlling their benefits, delivering tangible value to their employees, and forging a stronger company culture through their health plans.

    The advice they share is specific, actionable, and a quick sampling of the value that our Members’ Meetings offer.

    EP 4 - Giving a… Darn w/ Seth Denson, of GDP Advisors & Acrisure

    EP 4 - Giving a… Darn w/ Seth Denson, of GDP Advisors & Acrisure

    Why does stop-loss premium increase at a different rate than medical trend? We broke down why on this episode. It turned out there was some math involved. Hilarity ensued, but we got to the bottom of “leveraged trend” when it was all over. And with only a small number of… all the insurance terms you can possibly imagine.

    Then we sat down with Seth Denson, our friend and partner, and Chief Strategist at GDP Advisors & Director of Healthcare Strategies at Acrisure, to talk about staying focused on what’s really important in a world full of shiny distractions, the supply chain crisis in healthcare, and the differences in economics when you’re talking about care versus insurance.

    After that, we launched into the… curious practice that some knucklehead brokers have of comparing a best-case scenario for fully-insured plans to a worst-case scenario for self-insured ones.

    Hmm. I wonder what their motivation could possibly be. Really gets the old noggin joggin’.

    EP 3 - Lasers, the human C-3PO, and rising lobotomy prices w/Billy Potter of Snellings Walters

    EP 3 - Lasers, the human C-3PO, and rising lobotomy prices w/Billy Potter of Snellings Walters

    We’re talking lasers, but not the “pew-pew” kind. This is our conversation on stop-loss lasers and how they’re calculated. Lasers are among the most pressing concerns for employers, so we break down the details. Then we’re joined by Billy Potter, CEO of Snellings Walters, to talk about his journey into insurance, how business culture eats strategy for breakfast, and how to get the right people into the right roles. It also includes some psychological truths about your brave and beloved hosts, so listener discretion is advised. In our “You know they’re a knucklehead when…” segment, we talk about a particular piece of knuckle-headedness that plagues the industry. Namely, the advice that someone should “always take the stop-loss laser.” It’s a little bit like telling someone that they should “always cross the street.” Depending on the street, you might end up facing a bigger problem than what you started with.

    EP 2 - Stop-loss Carriers Aren’t Making You Sick w/Cara Kirsch of Gallagher

    EP 2 - Stop-loss Carriers Aren’t Making You Sick w/Cara Kirsch of Gallagher

    How does a stop-loss carrier calculate their rates? Why is it good to be big? Should people be shamed for not being able to do math in their heads? We sit down to talk about these burning questions and much, much more. Helping us get to the heart of it all is Cara Kirsch, Area Vice President of Gallagher in Omaha, Nebraska. She walks us through her journey, telling us how her smart use of data, entrepreneurial spirit, and growing up in a small town have all combined to make her a leader, an inspiration, and a great person to have on your side. We also touch on industry diversity, why insurance isn’t boring (we swear!), and some big plans for a food truck. In our recurring “You Know They’re a Knucklehead When…” segment, we examine a bizarre idea. Some brokers think that a stop-loss carrier can make people sick. Really. Seriously. It’s built into their numbers. Makes us all look bad.

    EP 1 - Fully deferred? What the heck are these people buying? w/Austin Madison of HUB International

    EP 1 - Fully deferred? What the heck are these people buying? w/Austin Madison of HUB International

    Welcome to the first episode of 80/20 with ParetoHealth! Today, we explain why the so-called “fully insured” model is neither full nor insured. We talk with Austin Madison of Hub International about baseball, his crazy high GPA, and how he realized that a self-insured model was better for his clients and his business. Then the gloves come off and we take on the knuckleheads, the spreadsheet addicts, the dinosaur insurance brokers who think they’re the smartest ones in the room - bless their hearts.
