Foremost Health Care And Employee Benefits Experts Examine Affordable Care Act And Changing Benefits Landscape At Sun Life Wake Up Summit 2013

The U.S. business group of Sun Life Financial Inc. (NYSE: SLF, TSX: SLF) will host its first Sun Life Wake Up Summit, a live studio and webcast event designed to provide insights and inform insurance brokers, human resources professionals, and business owners about health care reform and its impact on the employee benefits landscape.

The in-depth program features the foremost benefits and health care policy experts, who will lead thought-provoking discussions about the changing U.S. workplace and provide insurance brokers and employers with practical advice on how to prepare for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Moderated by Fox News’ Juan Williams, the summit brings together leading voices in health care reform and employee benefits from the academic, business, insurance, and health care policy arenas. The program will kick off with a keynote address by Dr. Jonathan Gruber, MIT professor of economics, renowned health care expert, and key advisor on both Massachusetts’ health care reform legislation and the ACA.

“The Affordable Care Act is the most comprehensive reform of American health care in two generations, and we know that many brokers and employers still have an unclear picture of the road ahead and what to expect as this legislation goes into effect,” said Wes Thompson, president of Sun Life Financial U.S. “This program provides a forum for much-needed discussion, and presents a 360-degree view of the ACA from a diverse group of stakeholders.”

The Sun Life Wake Up Summit will take place on Tuesday, October 1, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. ET. It will be broadcast in front of a live studio audience from WCVB TV-5 studios in Needham, Massachusetts, and streamed live from Sun Life’s U.S. website.
