Why embracing alternative health insurance sources for basic medical attention makes sense
Employers have long understood that offering group health insurance maintains a happy and stable work force. Enter Obamacare, as the ACA law is known, the math for health coverage has changed for insured and non-insured alike.
The doctor visit care $$ cost gap has widened
Getting basic medical attention for a family remains important, but an out of reach expense for many employees even with health insurance.
“Eight out of ten employees with individual coverage will end up having to pay out more than $1,300.00 before their insurance will begin to cover their medical expenses. ” – Kaiser Foundation.
Often health visits are avoided because of cost. It’s the proverbial “can” being kicked down the road.
Sick days spent in or out of the work place greatly impacts business, family
“The U.S. economy spends an estimated $84 billion on sick days annually, yet nearly 90 percent of employees still go to work when they’re sick. While a doctor visit can be inconvenient and costly, the decision to go to work sick results in the spread of germs to others, more sick employees, a less productive workplace and higher company costs to compensate.” – healthcare.gov
