On the Show: A Discussion on Saving Businesses on Health Care Costs

Recently on the Movers and Shakers segment of the Houston Manufacturers TV Show, I interviewed John Walet and Mike Alexander, both of ABM Insurance. On that program they discussed one of the most important issues facing business of every size -- the high cost of health care.

About ten years ago I got involved in the insurance industry and specialized in ancillary products. Those supplemental products grew in importance as a way to help people lower their costs through higher deductibles and other innovations. "Consumer Driven Health" became the buzz as companies tried to share medical costs with employees by making them pay more (in deductibles, doctor visits, etc.). That effort is continuing and, although there has been some progress in certain sectors, more needs to be done.

"More" is exactly what ABM Insurance is doing by offering seminars to companies on the importance of healthy living in order to achieve a healthier financial bottom line. That is the focus of this important footage from a recent show. Simply click the photo and then click "Movers and Shakers" to see the entire interview.
