Maybe You Already Have a Great Pandemic Product: Product Designers
June 9, 2020 by Allison Bell
Insurance product designers who want to help fight COVID-19 should consider what they can do quickly, and what they can do with a product that might take more time to develop.
Taylor McKinnon and Pamela Handmaker talked about their insurance product design ideas Monday, at a session at a Society of Actuaries (SOA) health insurance conference that was held online, due to COVID-19.
McKinnon is a compliance consultant at Milliman.
Handmaker is senior director of product and innovation at Trustmark Benefits.
