A Little Info About What's to Come

Control Increasing Employer Health Insurance Costs

Back by popular demand! In case you or a co-worker missed this presentation in July, there is another opportunity to experience these learnings in August. Spread the word and register now.

It's that season again:  meetings with brokers, new insurance contracts and bracing for the inevitable premium increases to apply to 2019 renewals.  Given the numerous actions taken over the last year in Washington D.C., many employers rightly fear they may face their highest spike in rates since 2010.

Those employers have a variety of cost containment strategies available to them, and some have already started implementing.  Within plan-design, Consumer-Directed Health Programs like High-Deductible Health Plans, Heath Savings Accounts, and Health Reimbursement Accounts, are increasing in popularity.  In examination of wellness, Health Risk Assessments, Biometric Testing, Tobacco Cessation and Telemedicine are also seeing accelerating employer adoption. 

But what about employee adoption?  Too often, employers are seeing disappointing first-year adoption rates by their employees, and lagging "pickup" for these plans in later years as well.  Most industry experts agree the number one reason for lack of adoption is the complexity of these new plans, employee lack of understanding of how these plans work and what kind of financial risks they are assuming under these new plans.  Simply stated, consumers don't buy what they don't understand, and when it comes to benefits enrollment, employees are consumers!

Thankfully, employers have a powerful tool available to them to address these concerns:  the Learning Management System.  With a properly deployed LMS in conjunction with SCORM- or AICC-compliant content and a creative incentive system in place, HR professionals can improve employee understanding of their available plan options significantly, and see increased adoption as a result.
