Simi Valley, California (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
When faced with shrinking budgets and growing operating expenses, many business executives look to cut costs wherever they can. The team at Underwood Insurance knows that during an economic downturn, many companies take a closer look at where the majority of their money is going and whether or not these funds need to be reallocated. For many local businesses, California group health insurance costs continue to rise year after year, which leaves many executives wondering whether or not they should continue to offer their employees the same benefits.
It’s never too early to start thinking about how to maintain next year’s budget, so the team at Underwood Insurance would like to offer a few tips on how to keep California group health insurance costs manageable for the small business:
- Employers can offer an opt-out monetary incentive for employees whose spouses are already enrolled in a separate health care plan.
- Allowing company-paid health care for an employee-only plan can take the burden of paying premiums off of employees who only enroll themselves under the company plan, as opposed to the employee-spouse plan.
- Get expert advice. Medicare specialists can consult with older employees who may find that it is less expensive for them to adopt Medicare products than pay the premium for a group health insurance that may not be tailored to their unique needs.
While it doesn’t look like California group health insurance rates will be going down any time soon, the team at Underwood Insurance is always ready and willing to help its clients determine strategies to help lower their group health care costs. Whether businesses choose to implement one or all of these changes, any little change could make a big difference in a company’s bottom line.
