In today’s competitive healthcare market, having a plan that greatly benefits an employer’s employees can help you secure the sell. The employee health benefits plan you offer to small business owners is a key factor for not only them but their employees as well.
Make selling insurance a walk in the park. Offer business owners features that speak to what their employees need most.
Make Sure Their Plan Includes Cost Saving Options for Prescription Drugs
With all the prescription drug cost rises over the last few years, people across the nation are struggling to pay for their medications. Oftentimes, if a person knows they won’t be able to afford their medication, they will forgo it, causing a detriment to their long-term health. Not to mention it creates additional stress for employers as they constantly have to deal with employees calling in sick and taking longer to recover.
Make sure the health benefits plan you offer business owners includes prescription benefits management so that the cost of every prescription drug that comes through the plan has the ability to be discounted. Not only will it help their employees out every time they head to the pharmacy for a refill, but it will assist in lowering the overall health benefits plan expenses – giving them a better chance for decreased rates when renewal comes around.
Make Sure Their Plan Includes Telemedicine Services for Easy Diagnosis
Offering plans that include telemedicine services are a no-brainer. They give employees a cost-effective option of not having to take time off work to visit the doctor and pay a copay. Instead, by using telemedicine services, employees can simply speak with a doctor over the phone to obtain a diagnosis. Even their prescription can be filled via telemedicine, making their medication the only cost out of their pocket. It’s a win-win for small business owners.
Make Sure Their Plan Includes 24/7 Plan and Account Management
While 24/7 plan and account management doesn’t directly correlate to the employees of a company, they are a feature that small business owners need and want. Plus, having complete control over their plan will ultimately help them (and their employees) save down the road. This also helps you when it comes time for them to renew.
