Should my Small Business offer Insurance to Employees?
As small business owners, we understand the challenges of keeping track of every detail. However, don't let Employee Benefits - also known as Group Benefits - be one detail left behind. With an Individual Health Insurance System that is turbulent, America is depending on insurance through employers.
Are you providing for your business family?
Health & Life Insurance employee benefits include:
Supplemental Health Insurance
While most clients know about the first two, Supplemental Health Insurance can help with doctor bills, hospital stays and even some nonmedical expenses if you're dealing with an accident, disability, cancer or critical illness - and at a fraction of the cost of Health Insurance. An example set of coverages under an Accident Supplemental Health Insurance plan include:
Accident Physician Treatment
Outpatient Physician's Treatment & Preventive Care
The upsides of Employee Benefits include:
Offers group benefits, optionally with no cost to the organization
Lets employees/members know they’re valued – and helps protect their families
Helps organizations attract and keep great people
Hassle-free payment through payroll deduction
Reduction in workers comp claims given Health Insurance coverage
Let's take a closer look at one example.
