What have you always wanted to know about Health Spending Accounts but have been too afraid to ask?  Well, here’s your opportunity to listen in and hear it from two of the top minds in the industry.  In today’s episode, we have a great conversation with Tim Kane and Steve McEwan of myHSA.  These two are really fun to speak with and you’ll hear us discuss everything from HSA’s, PSA’s, WSA’s…don’t worry, we break down what all these silly letters mean and how they can help your company.  The folks at myHSA are doing some very cool things in our industry, so it’s been amazing to watch their growth and development.  This one was a lot of fun to do.  I hope you enjoy it.

The Benefits Corner: Episode 24-Marie-Chantal Cote



Ever meet someone at a function and be so impressed by their passion for what they do?  This was certainly the case when I met Marie-Chantal Cote or “MC” as she’s known to her friends and colleagues.  MC is the VP Market Development at Sun Life, Group Benefits. In today’s episode, we discuss some of the innovation initiatives currently under way at Sun Life.  MC gives us some insight on how clients can “Bend the Benefits Cost Curve”.  She further explains that there is a strong digital component at play which is helping employers and employees alike manage their claims costs. Finally, we talk about how using data analytics and artificial intelligence can be used to help educate plan members and thus, improving the overall employee benefits experience.  I really enjoyed this conversation with MC.  I hope you do as well.
