April 2, 2024


We look forward to seeing you at our April meeting where we anticipate two more interesting presentations:


Presentation #1

From Risk to Resilience: Address Heart Health in Unions

Presented by: Dr. Edo Paz, SVP Medical Affairs

Hello Heart

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is not only the #1 cause of death but also the #1 most expensive chronic disease. On average, the total medical spending per year for each individual with CVD is over $12,500. Do you have a heart health strategy in place for the members of your fund?

In this presentation you will learn more about CVD and its risk factors, as well as how to empower your members to manage their heart health while reducing your healthcare costs. Dr. Edo Paz, SVP Medical Affairs, from Hello Heart will discuss:

1. The staggering clinical impact of poor heart health on your members

2. How cardiovascular claims factor into rising healthcare costs

3. Using digital therapeutics to address member heart health

Presentation #2

The Crisis of Medical Overbilling -

it's time to level the paying field

Presented by Charles Greenawalt, VP of Sales


Matthew Jacobs, Chief Development Officer


Our upcoming discussion will tackle Fraud, Waste, and Abuse in Healthcare Billing - pressing issues for health plans. We'll examine the aspects of medical billing that are prone to fraudulent, wasteful, or abusive practices and discuss best practices and available tools to prevent them.

Our goal is to provide a comprehensive overview that equips health plans with the knowledge and tools they need to protect their members and control costs.

Next Meeting date is April 2nd @ RWDSU 5th Floor Conference Room - 370 7th Avenue NYC 12:00 - 2:00 PM

In Solidarity,

The Board of the Association of Benefit Administrators
