DURHAM, N.H. – With businesses both large and small struggling
to deal with skyrocketing health care rates, how can family businesses
offer their employees health care plan options while keeping medical
benefit costs affordable and reasonable? The Center for Family Business
at the University New Hampshire will focus on these issues and more
at its next seminar Wednesday, Sept. 28.
The half-day event will be held at The Yard Restaurant in Manchester.
Registration and a continental breakfast begin at 8 a.m., with the
program starting at 8:30 a.m. Those interested in attending the
business program are asked to register by Sept. 21.
The seminar is an opportunity to join family businesses in an open
discussion about what they are doing to provide health care to employees
and attempt to control rising costs. A panel of experts in the medical,
insurance, brokerage and family business fields will share their
knowledge with the attendees.
Why are rates rising so fast? What needs to happen rates to stabilize
or come down? Will more competition reduce rates? What options can
a business offer employees? What are family-owned, as well as other
businesses, doing to keep costs affordable? What is the current
HB 110 status? Are there any other options for family-owned businesses
in New Hampshire? What does the future look like and how do businesses
Nonmembers of the Center for Family Business can attend the program
on a one-time trial basis for $150 per person. To register or for
