1:00pm – Artificial Intelligence in Total Rewards
This will be an engaging, interactive session tailored for Benefits professionals, led by Ryan Malkes, of Mercer, a Gen AI expert. In this session, participants of all levels will explore the practical applications of Generative AI in Total Rewards. We will delve into the latest tools and technologies that are reshaping our industry, providing valuable insights on optimizing these resources to streamline operations, augment the efforts of your team, and elevate the overall employee experience.

2:00 – 2:15 Networking Break

2:15pm - Benefits/PBM TransparencyPBM Transparency is an issue that has been much debated recently, with scant agreement even within the PBM industry. Employers providing pharmacy benefits to their employees often do not understand how PBMs are paid. The debate has resulted in bi-partisan legislation being considered in both the US House and Senate. Keith Weaver will lead this session from USI’s Pharmacy Benefits Practice. He will cover the various ways in which PBMs are dealing with employers and their advisors’ quest for more transparency in how they are paid, followed by an interview session with Keith dealing with policy issues related to Congressional activity.  

3:15pm - Social Hour and Vendor Showcase
Join us for a networking event with drinks and appetizers. You will also be able to visit with some key sponsors and vendors. Relax, share, and connect with our Community of Benefits Professionals. You will really want to be there! 

We have applied for 2 hours of Continuing Education credit with the State of Minnesota for this event, one for each session. You are required to sign in and out of each session to receive credit. Sign-in forms are located in the presentation room on the table.
