JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 23, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Healthcues Makes Well-Being Worth It For Trucking Companies
A new preventative health care management program with financial incentives
Healthcues, a supplementary benefits provider focused on preventative healthcare, today announced it is now offering its unique supplemental health insurance to the commercial vehicle industry. At no out-of-pocket cost to the employee or the employer Healthcues provides elective limited health insurance benefits under Section 125. These benefits are paid with pre-tax dollars which offsets the cost through payroll tax reduction.
"Motivating employees to participate in preventative healthcare programs can be difficult," said Michael Kestler, V.P. business development at Healthcues. "We created a program that financially incentivizes people to adopt healthy practices because generally those that are already healthy are aware of the benefits of preventative healthcare and participate in programs while people who need it the most do not."
With the innovative and creative Healthcues program, employees are provided with unlimited access to tools and resources that promote a healthier lifestyle while also seeing some take home pay increase yearly by more than 4%. For employers, quantifiable net savings from lower payroll taxes can average $600 per employee annually. Healthcues can also be partnered with a Gap Plan to pay what health insurance plans do not cover, such as deductible and co-insurance costs, enabling the savings from Healthcues to help pay for the Gap Plan coverage.
"Improving the overall health of our nation is our passion and figuring out how to make a healthy lifestyle a benefit and not a task, it is our mission," continued Kestler. "We understand that managing pre-tax dollars through payroll can be time consuming for employers, especially those with a high employee turnover rate, so we created the Healthcues platform to not only be easy for employees to use but also simple for employers to manage."
Healthcues takes a proactive approach to preventative health care through a range of services and educational programs designed to encourage participants to lead healthier lifestyles. Its three step strategy includes:
- Limited Benefit Health Indemnity Plan to help cover out of pocket medical costs
- Section 125 Cafeteria Plan that offers the opportunity to receive benefits on a pre-tax basis and has the potential to generate health care savings
- Well-Being Services and Solutions including health tracking software, 24/7 telemedicine services, online learning modules, health screenings, and more
