OUR 3 STEP APPROACH TO BENEFIT CONSULTING

Understanding Your Current Offering

Let’s find out where you are so we can get you to point B: Read More

There are significant differences as well as some strong similarities. Both can be the right solution for your company and it’s important you understand the attributes on both sides of the game.

In fully insured we would call it a carrier as a packaged product offered to purchase, in self-funded or level funded we’ll see a variety of leased networks that in some cases mirror the packaged fully insured networks like Aetna & Cigna or a number of other national and regional private networks. Network selection matters not only in access to care but also in discounts. Different regional areas have networks which perform better than others, which network are you in?

What is your benefit plan strategy? Proper plan designs influence decisions, bend curves and incentivize members for making informed choices. Do you have a current strategy in place to accomplish change?

Benefits play a critical role in your employment package and are a key component in employee acquisition & retention. According to the Society of Human Resources Management, “employee replacement costs can reach 50 to 60 percent of an employee’s annual salary”. IT MATTERS WHAT YOUR EMPLOYEES THINK! What is the overall response to your benefits? Have you asked your employees what they value most? An open line of communication is a great way to retain talent and “stay interviews” are a good way to question employees of what components of your employment package will keep them engaged. Have you considered closely how your benefits compare to your leading competitors?

With understanding comes value especially with more complex items like employee benefits. With less than 50% of employees claiming they understand their benefits today, how are you educating your employees of what exactly is being offered to them?  Benefits are costly; do you feel as though your members see the value in your contribution to their plans? How are you currently communicating the benefits provided at open enrollment and throughout the year for new hires?

Do they participate in wellness incentives, Preventative care programs, or seek incentive based care?  Engaging employees in wellness programs is a great awareness tool, but studies show these programs often sputter with ROI’s compared to incentive based programs. Does your current benefit offering incentivize your employee to make better health decisions?  Cost of care can swing hundreds of percentage points between different centers of care or providers.  The truth is that most members have no idea the cost of care prior to receiving it. By guiding members towards their desired best health outcome possible AND achieving that desired outcome for the lowest possible cost is the goal. How are you engaging your employees?
