Julie Nye will be joining an IEBA webinar to discuss medical trends from an underwriting perspective

The rising cost of medical has been a problem for multinationals for years, as medical costs have continued to go up faster than general inflation all over the world. But with the world having changed so much over the last year, how has medical trend been affected? We’re excited to be joining a webinar from IEBA (International Employee Benefits Association) UK to discuss just this.

Julie Nye, Underwriting Manager at MAXIS GBN, will be joining a panel of specialists, to look at what drives trend and how underwriters use it to price premiums. Of course, it wouldn’t be a 2021 webinar if we didn’t talk about COVID-19. In the session Julie will share how COVID, lockdowns and the global health crisis have affected underwriting approaches on both a local and global level.

The panel will be led by Paul Devitt, Senior Director at Willis Towers Watson, and Julie will be speaking on the panel alongside Daniela Masters, Head of Health and Wellbeing Programmes, at Generali and Patricio Delacroix, Network Relationship Manager at Zurich.This session will finish with a discussion where the panellists will share their expectations for 2021 and how to effectively manage trend, before opening up to questions from the audience.

Good luck to the panellists!
