Every national PPO now relies on secret agreements with providers to maintain their networks. Because they are secret, employers and the self-funded plans they sponsor cannot review these agreements even though these same self-funded plans are responsible for paying the costs of these agreements. 

Secrecy invites abuse. There is growing evidence of that already, and a strong likelihood it will get worse with Obamacare. 

How did this happen? What can self-funded plans do? This webinar explores these pressing questions and presents concrete steps plans can take to protect their interests.
