Bringing Spanish Speakers on Board with Benefits

Futuro Sólido USA
Wellness Programs for Spanish Speakers
April 26, 2012 - 1:00 p.m.
Register Here
Powered by: NAHU Education Foundation

This 60-minute webinar session is designed to teach insurance professionals WHY Spanish speakers are reluctant to participate in wellness programs as well as HOW to design and implement successful wellness programs that will overcome their typical objections. Participants will be provided with proven, hands-on strategies that are easy to implement. This presentation will help them address resistance and build the trust within this community that is necessary for Spanish speakers to consider changing their lifestyle in such a way that will improve their health and lower their healthcare costs.    

Join us for this eye-opening session and receive a copy of Futuro Sólido USA’s innovative DVD, The Importance of Health Insurance, for an additional $25.00 (regular price $49.95). This video is in Spanish with English subtitles and has been proven to increase participation in group health benefits.

I joined the webinar on 3/7/12 and found it extremely interesting and informative. The webinar was very well presented as well.  BeneFLEX is  a Third Party Administrator who administers 125 Cafeteria plans for employers around the country. We administer FSA, HRA, COBRA, TMA, POP plans, and HCSO plans in San Francisco. We have many Spanish speaking participants on the west coast that I speak to in Spanish on a daily basis with questions and concerns regarding their account balances and claims.

Thank you for sharing the slides and additional attachments so quickly. Look forward to your next webinar.
