Medical and dental insurance are very important to people right now. People can’t afford to pay for hospital stays or doctor appointments so they search for companies that offer benefits to their employees and usually when they find one, they stick with it. If you don’t offer benefits to your employees, you need to consider it so your employees are happy and willing to stay with you for the duration.
Offering benefits is not easy to start, but worth it in the long run. There are a number of ways to make this happen, but you must do your research in order for it to happen. One of the first things you need to do is make appointments with several insurance companies in town to see what they offer. You’ll want to make sure you talk to different insurance agents that work with different companies so you have different options to offer your employees. United Healthcare, Aetna, and Kaiser Permanente are just a few of the companies you’ll want to consider.
Before your appointments you’ll need to sit down and decide how much you can afford to pay each month. You don’t have to pay for any of the premiums each month, but your employees may be more willing to sign up for it if you pay for part of the monthly amount. This amount will help you in deciding which plan to go with for your employees.
You’ll also need to consider the health of your employees so you know which plan to go with. If your employees have children, you’ll need to find a plan that offers children’s health. If your employees are young, you’ll want to consider one that offers pregnancy and children’s health.
Once you decide on a plan to go with you’ll need to give your employees all the information they need to decide if they’re going to join or not. You’ll also need to make sure they know when it will start and how much money they’ll need to pay out of each check to cover the cost of the premium. You should also consider offering auto pay from their check to cover the cost of the plan.
When your employees have health insurance they’ll likely go to the doctor when something is wrong. The healthier they are the more likely they’ll be to show up every day for work and the less likely they’ll be to cheat on you with someone else.
