NEW YORK, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
COBRA administration company, Clarity Benefit Solutions, discusses how to help employees select the benefit plans that best suit their needs.
When it comes to selecting benefits, employees may need some assistance choosing the best options that suit their specific needs. The following information can help them with their choice.
First, it is paramount to take the time to ensure that employees are armed with all the information they need. A benefits provider can provide this information in a multitude of formats and be available to tackle questions and concerns. Choose a provider with services such as access to dedicated HR professionals who will be able to provide employees with the proper guidance they need. Provide a user-friendly, online benefits platform that will streamline the entire process.
Next, provide plenty of benefits options that include medical, dental, and vision from top carriers; and allow them to customize these plans with affordable options to suit their individual needs. Provide them with the proper questions to ask so they simply don't keep selecting the same—or least expensive—plans year after year. Relevant topics include prescription drug coverage, voluntary benefits, wellness programs, and alternative medical practitioners.
Offering ancillary benefits—such as disability or life insurance—can help boost employees' financial security and make them feel more secure. Additional wellness benefits such as commuter benefits or gym memberships can also alleviate financial burdens and foster a healthy lifestyle.
Finally, employers should continue to share information—and provide support—throughout the year. Chances are, employees will experience a life event such as the birth of a child, purchase of a home, accident, or unexpected illness. Informing them how their benefits offerings can help them plan for these events will enable them to make better, more informed decisions when it is time to re-enroll. Education ideas include lunch meetings on voluntary benefits, reminders to utilize unused flexible account dollars before the end of the plan year, and meetings on retirement education.
