The ways we treat patients and the ways we view illness are constantly changing, but the question remains: Are insurance policies keeping up with this rapid pace of change?

Join us on Monday, Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. CST/12 p.m. EST as Trustmark Voluntary Benefit Solutions medical consultant Dr. Howard Fixler offers insight on how to overcome the number of disconnects between how policies look at illness and how doctors treat illness in the field. It starts with taking a closer look at the way we approach policy language to help bridge the gap between doctors and insurers and provide better support for policyholders.

Dr. Fixler’s webinar, “Critical Illness Insurance: Why Doctors and Insurers Should Speak the Same Language,” will include research findings and an explanation for why one third of all Critical Illness (CI) claims in the industry are denied. He’ll also discuss how carriers can fix this problem so policyholders get the coverage they need, when they need it.

Dr. Fixler will help you understand what to look for when shopping for policies to get the best value for employees—based on consumer feedback. You’ll learn why critical illness insurance is such a value add in our current healthcare marketplace, and how examples of current policies can and should:

  • Better reflect current medical diagnosis
  • Cover early stage and early identification diagnoses in a comprehensive way
  • Offer coverage for more conditions without driving up the cost
  • Provide protection for the top three conditions that account for 90% of all CI claims
  • Remove elimination periods
