Employers Seek Alternative Solutions to Solve Rising Benefit Plan Costs

 

Rising prices for benefit plans have employers considering creative solutions to lower healthcare expenses. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, benefit costs were predicted to hit $15,000 per employee in 2019, making it the sixth consecutive year that costs have increased 5 percent or more. With these increases, what should employers do to protect their bottom line?

In his recent article, Jim Blanchek – co-founder of The Benefits Group – encourages employers who are unhappy with their benefits plan to implement alternative solutions before their renewal date. According to Blanchek, there are countless opportunities for growth hiding in your benefits plan, and there’s no need to wait another year to unlock them.

“There are countless opportunities for growth hiding in your benefits plan, and there’s no need to wait another year to unlock them.”

With an expensive market, the fear of employers has become reality: expensive health plans with minimal benefits have sent their workforce searching for employment opportunities with better benefits. The Center for American Progress claims that losing just five mid-level employees in a single year can easily cost an employer $50,000. To increase employee retention, employers are looking for alternative solutions that help contain their healthcare costs.

One of the popular solutions available is Direct Primary Care (DPC). By providing membership for a flat monthly fee, DPC eliminates all traditional fee-for-service claims that would be collected for an employee’s primary care. DPC saves money and encourages healthy living by ensuring a patient-physician relationship that is no longer affected by billing codes.

As an integrated DPC organization, Healthcare2U provides members with affordable and unlimited access to primary care services, chronic disease management, and 24/7/365 telehealth. Besides our outstanding service to our members, another differentiator between Healthcare2U and other DPC organizations is our footprint across the United States.
