“One less thing to worry about.”

perfect fit: finding the right Health Insurance

Whether you have two employees or 5,000, a small family-owned business or a mega-corporation, following these steps can help you find the right health insurance for your employees.

Develop a multi-year strategy for your company’s health plan utilizing the expertise of your benefit advisor (Agent/Broker).

Engage employees in the cost of their health care by implementing a plan:

Your plan should promote and encourage preventive/routine care by possibly waiving deductibles. Also, prescription drug plans should encourage generics. If your plan features office visit copays, set them high enough to discourage "unnecessary" use of services. Set deductibles and coinsurance at appropriate levels to ensure your employees share in the costs, but with appropriate coinsurance limits to protect them from catastrophic health care costs.

Review your plan with your Benefit Advisor annually to ensure your plan still fits your strategy. It is easier to adjust gradually each year vs. sizeable increases all at once.

Develop an employee communication plan with your benefit advisor and health insurance carrier using multiple mediums for communication.

Implement a work-site wellness program by working with your benefits advisor and carrier. Helping your employees improve their health can help lower future health care costs.
