As the cost of health insurance continues to rise, employers are looking for creative ways to decrease costs and improve the health of their workforce. Many companies have decided to launch employee wellness programs in conjunction with their group health plan. Wellness programs have been shown to decrease costs in several areas, including decreased insurance usage, less sick time away from work, and a general increase in workplace enthusiasm.
At Benefit Partners Group, a division of HUB International, we can help you decide which specific wellness programs would be best to utilize for your employee base. Because of our extensive experience, we understand which wellness programs work and how to implement them. We have found success with many groups in helping to alleviate the cost of medical care for both the employees and the employer.
Virtual Doctor Visits
Many of our insurance carriers now seamlessly integrate virtual visits into their health plans. The virtual visit provider groups deliver care using live audio and video technology based on quality standards aligned with the American Medical Association (AMA) and Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) guidelines. When employees are sick they often miss work. With virtual visits, employees and their covered family members can see and speak to a doctor 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week using a mobile device or computer, wherever they are. If needed, a prescription can be sent to their local pharmacy. Virtual visits are fully integrated with your benefit plan and provided at no additional administrative cost to you, as the employer.
