2018 CRITICAL ISSUES SEMINAR

 

Wednesday, August 29

Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee

 

 

Opioid overdose deaths have increased dramatically in recent years. The prevalence of prescription opioid abuse is also growing across all socioeconomic strata. 

 

We are teaming up with experts from ExamOne, Milliman IntelliScript and RGA Re to present the industry’s only educational experience devoted to underwriting opioid use and abuse. 

 

The purpose of this event is to enable insurers to cost-effectively use laboratory tests, Rx records, demographics, lifestyle factors and medical history to pinpoint and efficiently underwrite applicants who are abusing, or at high risk for abusing, opioid drugs. 

 

Benzodiazepine underwriting will also be covered, in part because over 60% of opioid related deaths also involve benzodiazepines.
