A benefit program typically consists of benefits from more than one insurance carrier/vendor with various administration guidelines and materials for each. Then add to this mix approximately 50 different federal and state laws. The greater number of products, insurance carriers, and regulations, the more complex and cumbersome administration becomes. Guidelines in the industry are fluid and, as such, it is important to receive proper training, timely updates on changes, and accurate and timely responses to inquiries.
Automation and consolidation are necessary for your benefit program if you desire an efficient and effective administration process. We provide the support, education, and tools to ease this administration burden.
Studies show employees are willing to share responsibility of rising health care costs, but many do not know where to begin. Building on this view, employers can take the lead in involving employees, which can ultimately benefit both parties.
Involving employees is a step in any cost control strategy and should result in greater acceptance and understanding of changes as well as employees' willingness to be part of the solution.
We have the knowledge, experience, and resources to help you design and implement a benefit program that includes employee involvement. Our guidance includes coordinating various initiatives, consumerism, wellness and disease management, and employee education and communication.
