In our latest podcast episode, we highlight a 2021 Fall Symposium talk from Dr. Tori Crain where she addresses the topic of supporting low-wage essential workers' nonwork life during the pandemic and the numerous stressors they have faced and are still facing. Although much of the focus during the pandemic has been on the experiences of healthcare workers, essential vulnerable workers in other industries have not received the same attention. This talk highlighted obstacles faced by essential, lower-wage shift workers, with a specific focus on the work-life challenges of fast-food workers whose experiences can be generalized to other vulnerable occupational groups. Additionally, Dr. Crain shared strategies on supportive solutions that organizations and supervisors can explore, which have been generated from in-depth interview studies conducted during the pandemic with these essential workers and supervisors. Dr. Tori Crain is an Assistant Professor of Applied Psychology at Portland State University. Her research is focused on the diverse work-nonwork experiences of underrepresented and vulnerable workers, especially in industries and occupations that are high risk, where health and safety protections are less common, and where discriminatory practices are often at play. She has worked with a variety of union and industry partners, including construction, healthcare, manufacturing, and the gig economy, with the goal of increasing support and equity for workers and their families. To learn more about Dr. Crain's research, visit Dr. Crain's Lab website: https://sites.google.com/pdx.edu/crain-lab/home Dr. Crain was a guest speaker during our 2021 Fall Symposium.

Jon talks about defining conflict with Gabe Karp, Author of Don't Get Mad At Penguins: And Other Ways to Detox the Conflict in Your Life and Business. They discuss the meaning of Gabe's book title and how you can use the tools in the book to shift your thinking about how to manage conflict in your business and personal life. Gabe is a Partner at Detroit Venture Partners, a Detroit-based venture capital firm that backs early-stage technology companies. He serves on several boards of companies in the DVP portfolio. He is also a board member and Chief Development Officer for Marxent, the leader in Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and 3D solutions for the home furnishings, building products and homebuilding industries. Prior to joining DVP, Gabe was the Executive Vice President and General Counsel of ePrize, Inc. (now HelloWorld, Inc.), an interactive promotions company representing 75 of the top 100 brands in the world. Gabe was instrumental in growing the company from a small start up to one of the world's premier companies in its space, during which time he built and led various operations teams. He led the efforts on multiple acquisitions, venture financings, credit facilities, and ultimately the sale of the company to a large private equity firm. Crain's Business named Gabe as General Counsel of the year for the state of Michigan in 2011 (privately held companies valued under $1B). Gabe's excellence in the legal field was demonstrated by his unprecedented record of personally overseeing the legal clearance of more than 13,000 interactive promotions in 44 countries for many of the largest brands in the world with zero legal challenges. He co-authored Puerto Rico's revised sweepstakes regulations adopted in 2009, has consulted the Federal Trade Commission as well as legislators and regulators in many states on drafting and enforcing legislation in those jurisdictions applicable to the interactive promotion industry. Gabe spent the first decade of his professional life as a litigator (trial lawyer). He was a partner and shareholder of Hurwitz, Karp, Wallach & Gantz, P.C. His practice included complex commercial litigation, class-action litigation and legal malpractice (suing other lawyers for screwing up)—talk about conflict! Gabe and his wife Rachel have 3 wonderful daughters. He describes what it's like at home, “we try to take ourselves seriously every now and then, but that usually just ends in laughter.” Gabe is also an avid heli-skier (yep, that's skiing with a helicopter).

Hope Community Church was established through the church revitalization process of Church Adoption. McElwain Baptist Church a once thriving church with thousands of members, had been faithfully serving its community for 125 years. Over the years, the church roll declined to 350 members with only 100 people in worship attendance. As Pastor Jacob Simmons states, "McElwain Baptist Church was a declining church, but not a dying church." As a way to help the church revitalize, Shades Mountain Baptist Church, adopted McElwain Baptist and began a new work by establishing Hope Community Baptist Church. In this interview, Pastor Jacob Simmons and Jeff Hindman share their story of God working in this wonderful partnership of two churches.

Timmy is the type of entrepreneur that inspires at every turn. He provides a combination of realism and optimism that is rare. I believe the audience will be drawn to his story, his approach to navigating transitions and why people matter most.

Motivated by the social impact made possible by a successful business, and desiring to make this impact on a larger scale, Tim and his business partners purchased WorkPlace Impact (then WorkPlace Media) in 2013. In July 2017, Cara Zale, a Social Capital Investment Company was born. Through Cara Zale, Tim and his partners publicize that they are focused on “Growing Great Businesses and Developing People who Create Social Change.” Tim lives in Worthington, OH, and teaches regularly at Ohio State University, his MBA alma mater, sharing his experiences in building businesses with students at the Fisher College of Business.

Tim currently serves as chair of The Business of Good Foundation based in Mentor, OH, and has helped to develop TheBusinessofGood.org and their practice of “Serving Those Who Serve the Very Poor.” He also hopes to encourage budding entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs to continue their development of community and national projects, as those are the sources of America's future potential success.

This show with AJ Loiacono is different than others you may have heard with him because in this healthcare podcast, we are not talking about PBMs (pharmacy benefit managers). We're talking about brokers and EBCs (employee benefit consultants). So, say I'm a self-insured employer. Here's the big question: Is my broker or EBC helping me make the right decisions, or is he or she helping me make decisions that will make them the most money? While there are some amazing and totally above-board EBCs and brokers out there, unfortunately, caveat emptor is a thing. Buyer beware, that is. Too many self-serving and I'm sure very charming sharks are out there circling plan sponsors. It is currently a fact that some EBCs and brokers and even TPAs (third-party administrators) or PBMs or others take hidden kickbacks or fees or percentages. They make a lot of money, maybe the most money, in these secret ways. All this money, money paid in secret backroom deals—let's not lose track, these dollars increase the total prices paid by plan sponsors and employees. Now, I say this to say that my guest today, AJ Loiacono, calls 2022, right now, a “magical moment” for plan sponsors—and for straight-shooting EBCs and PBMs and all the others who are actually doing the right thing by their clients also. It's because of the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA), which states quite clearly that plan sponsors can ask their healthcare and benefits service providers to disclose the money that they are making off of the plan—all of the money, not just the direct fees. The CAA went into effect last December (December 2021), and contrary to what some people have said or may believe, it is in force right now. The field memo went out on 12/31/2021. So, the CAA is the rule right now. And in fact, the CAA makes it imperative under ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) to do what I just said: Plan sponsors must disclose the monies that they are paying out on behalf of employees and ensure that those fees are reasonable and free from conflict. If you're the fiduciary of the plan, you gotta disclose all these indirect and direct compensations of the people that you are paying or the people that you are paying who may be kicking back dollars to other people you are working with, unbeknownst to you. The Department of Labor is putting as much emphasis right now on healthcare as they put on 401(k) plans in the early 2000s, so this is a big deal—or it should be—for plan sponsors. So obviously, in order to comply with the CAA, self-insured employers should be requesting from their EBCs and brokers or others that they disclose, in writing, how much money they are making off the plan. You can see why this disclosure would be necessary if the plan sponsor is responsible to determine if those payments are reasonable and seem to be free from conflict, right? You can't evaluate something you do not know about, and if you don't know about it, the plan sponsor is the one at risk. Ignorance is not an excuse here. Here's one example: What if the EBC or TPA is collecting a $40 payment per prescription from the PBM? Wait … what? Some plan sponsor is paying $40 per script in, I guess you'd call it, a commission? Yes, that is a rumored example—$40/Rx. It is basically full-on arbitrage, and if anyone disagrees, let me know why and how it's not. Or let's say the EBC is making, say, $6 per script payable by the PBM, and this sum should be mailed quarterly to a PO box in another state. This was a condition, by the way, for a PBM to win an RFP (request for proposal) that the EBC wrote and picked the winner of. Yeah, you as the plan sponsor really probably want to know that this is going on because it's your butt on the line. Maybe they are happening right now to you if you haven't gotten the disclosures from your EBC or broker. So, in sum, the CAA is in effect right now. Penalties can be levied right now against plan sponsors. For a deep dive into the CAA, listen to the show with Christin Deacon (EP342) from last year. What's the process if I'm an employer plan sponsor? Step 1: Request in writing the dollars that your EBC or broker is making off of you. Similar to the advice that you'll hear often on this show, ask for actual dollars, not a percentage of this or that. Ask for how much money did you (broker or EBC) make off each program that you recommended to us, and what did that total up to. Once you make that request, the EBC/broker/TPA (whoever you're asking) has 30 or 90 days to respond, depending on who you ask. But if they do not respond, then you, the employer, should report them to the Department of Labor. Keep this in mind: Once that EBC or broker is reported for failure to comply by anybody, meaning likely some other employer, it is only a matter of time before that information becomes public. And the second that info becomes public, I guarantee you that there's some attorney out there just waiting to file a class action lawsuit against every other self-insured employer who uses that EBC/broker because everybody else out there is now out of compliance. Right? I'm not a lawyer and I am certainly not a class action ambulance chaser, but even I can figure out that strategy. AJ Loiacono has been on this podcast before talking about PBMs, and in this episode he delivers, talking about the shenanigans of some brokers and how the jig is now up. AJ is the CEO of Capital Rx, which is a PBM 2.0, as they call it. To see how the CAA is playing out, you can read about one real-life example of a school district's lawsuit against an insurance consultant.

Anthony J. “AJ” Loiacono is the co-founder and CEO of Capital Rx, one of the fastest-growing health technology companies in America.
