During the annual open enrollment period, businesses are looking at what new health plan will be offered to their employees for 2017. Now is when decisions are being made about changes in healthcare plan offerings. This is the time to discuss telemedicine. Employers look to their insurance professionals for expert advice during this time. Telemedicine during open enrollment is the perfect solution to their rising healthcare cost concerns.
What are employers concerned about?
Today, health insurance is an important benefit for employers to be able to attract and retain quality employees. Employees are putting more weight on the benefits being offering by a potential employer when making employment decisions. Flexibility and value is important to potential new employees and healthcare is no exception.
Productivity is also a concern for all employers. Many employers are making the move to offer health benefits that focused on improving employee health and wellness and provide better access to quality healthcare. When employees have better access to quality healthcare they are healthier. Healthier employees lead to lower employee absence rates. Lower employee absence rates result in increased productivity.
So how do employers balance cost and value? How do they provide benefits that allow them recruit and retain talented employees? What can they do to ensure a healthy and productive workforce without raising healthcare costs to the company? How do insurance professionals provide products that will fit all their clients’ needs?
