Top reasons how your employee health plan can help
From recruiting and retaining talent to saving your company tax dollars, offering health insurance benefits can be a win-win situation for both you and your employees.
Attract and retain talent
As the person responsible for choosing employee benefits, you may be considering health insurance benefits for your employees. Many companies offer health insurance for recruiting and retention purposes to make sure they are attracting the best talent for the job.
Offering health insurance benefits can help you actually save money in a couple of ways:
- Employers and employees pay less for health insurance when it is purchased at a group level because it is paid for with pre-tax dollars.
- When you or your employees contribute to premiums, health savings accounts (HSAs) and/or health reimbursement accounts (HRAs), there are even more tax benefits available.
Group health plans often have access to large networks of doctors and hospitals compared to an individual plan on the public exchange. This is really important for employees have already established care with certain caregivers and don’t want to lose these relationships through a smaller network.
