NEW  YORK, October 14, 2021 – Buck, an integrated HR, pensions, and employee benefits consulting, technology, and administration services firm, today announced that Kelly Conlin has been appointed U.S. Health Practice Leader. In this role, she’ll lead a team of 150+ consultants and actuaries serving hundreds of clients to improve health outcomes for millions of employees, dependents, and retirees.

Her team developed Buck’s predictive healthcare modeler to help clients understand the cost implications of COVID-19 on their healthcare plans, considering direct costs of testing and treatment as well as indirect impacts due to deferred care and other insights from our book of business data.
