Alternatives to Traditional Company Health Plans: Now’s the Time
As you know, a lot of changes have come about in our nation over recent days – leading to some volatility in the American stock market, global financial markets and of course, the public discourse. Meanwhile, employers and their human resources professionals still have organizations to run. They can’t afford to stop and reflect for too long; even in the eye of the storm, they have to keep moving forward. Of course, one of the most urgent matters on their agendas this time of year is wrapping up their duties for the annual open enrollment.
No matter what happens to be going on in government, there’s no time to waste when it comes to improving your organization’s employee benefits – chief among them, the company health plan. As you know, there’s a lot of talk that the incoming presidential administration wants to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act; maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t. Maybe it will only partially happen. If you’re an employer, you can’t afford to stand by and wait to find out.
Right now, before any sweeping changes are enacted, employers need to start looking into alternatives to save costs on their company health plans. For many of those employers, one of the most promising alternatives to traditional health plans will be direct contracting. Direct contracting is a service that is an alternative to traditional company health plans. It can bring about the money-saving changes your company plan needs without compromising on the care your employees receive. It sounds simple, because it is; all the best things are.
