Subject Matter Connectors


During HCAA's 2016 Strategic Planning process our Board discussed the need to identify and to make known the vast expertise in the HCAA membership.  Consistent with HCAA's focus on the "Value of Connection", these experts, known as Subject Matter Connectors, will be available to engage with HCAA members to help with specific questions or to provide suggestions when a member requires direction, based on topics inherent to third party administrators and benefit administrative services.

Subject Matter Connector Leads, which consist of members of the HCAA Board of Directors, will build connector teams through the identification of individual HCAA members that have extensive experience and knowledge.  The Leads will direct members to Affiliate or TPA resources within the HCAA membership that can provide more extensive expertise.  This program is designed to give guidance and suggestions, but not to replace expert counsel.
