When comparing similar plan benefits, 2014 average individual major medical premium rates were less expensive than small group health insurance rates in many counties.
Enrollment is paperless. All changes, additions, terminations, and billing administration are through your Online HR Admin Portal, available through your private exchange. Employees have their own online accounts and can access their coverage information, print ID cards, search networks and request changes.
Each of your employees are unique and so are their healthcare and benefit needs. The exchange offers more than 100 different health plans from leading carriers. Multiple group and individual plan options are available on the exchange.
In the traditional group plan, the Employer is the policy holder and the employees choose a plan from a single-carrier.
In the Stipend Plan option, employees can choose from more than 100 plans from multiple providers. Employees are the policy holder, so the employer does not have to worry about the burden of group renewals or the administration of Cobra if an employee decides to leave.
The Hybrid Plan is a tax-favorable option that allows employees to choose their carrier. In this plan, employees are the policy holder so the employer does not have to worry about the burden group renewals or the administration of Cobra if an employee decides to leave.
Already plugged into your private exchange is a voluntary ancillary benefits platform similar to what a Fortune 500 company offers to their employees. As an employer, you may choose to contribute some funds to help your employees cover the costs or not. It’s up to you. Please note that some of the ancillary benefits availability is based on your SIC code.
Below are some of the most popular products that your employees can take advantage of:
