2021 Supplemental Health, DI and LTC conference hosted by LIMRA, LOMA and the Society of Actuaries (SOA)

WINDSOR, Conn., July 21, 2021—Sam Glick, partner and leader of Oliver Wyman’s Health Innovation Center, will open the 2021 Supplemental Health, DI and LTC conference with a discussion about what the U.S. healthcare landscape will look like post pandemic.

The conference, which typically attracts more than 250 insurance professionals, will examine current challenges and emerging opportunities in pricing/product design, filing, underwriting, claims and more in a virtual format on Aug. 4–6, 2021.

Hosted by LIMRA, LOMA and the Society of Actuaries (SOA), the conference provides the opportunity to network with peers, share ideas and experiences, and learn from experts within the supplemental health, individual disability and long-term care industries.

As the world emerges from a global pandemic, industry professionals need to understand the implications of COVID-19 for insurance products. Katherine Hempstead, senior policy advisor, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; Dave Rengachary, M.D., senior vice president and chief medical director, U.S. Mortality Markets, Reinsurance Group of America; and Susan C. Winckler, chief executive officer, Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA, will share the latest data on the chronic condition known as “Long COVID” and what it might mean for the insurance industry.

Additional conference sessions include:

  • Innovation in Long-Term Care Claims Management: 90% of all Americans want to age at home. Many people, however, are transitioning into facility-based care earlier than needed. Our experts will present insights into what is driving this trend and the use of data, analytics and technology to help improve and maintain policyholders’ health and wellbeing in order to age at home for longer.
  • Selling DI to the Middle Market, Millennials and Non-Traditional Workers: This panel discussion will explore the rapidly evolving sales, underwriting and application processing methods that are emerging in an effort to modernize the insurance industry’s approach to potential new insureds.
  • Supplemental Health Buzz Group: In this session, attendees will break into small groups to discuss current events, challenges and opportunities in the supplemental health industry.
