Learn How Educated Employees Help Total Costs

Nothing stays the same for long. This is especially true when discussing the landscape of health benefits, care choices and how to meet individuals’ specific care needs. Because of these continuous changes, many business owners are seeking out new and creative ways to offer affordable, effective coverage choices. To do so, they need to empower employees in choosing their health benefits.

Led by Jason Machasic, director of marketing strategy and member engagement at Blue Cross, and Jeff Baker, Manager, Consumer Directed Health, “From Passenger to Driver: Improving Employee Adoption in Consumer Driven Health Plans” explores the value of educating employees about their health care, helping eliminate confusion and frustration while positively affecting a business’ bottom line. Employers who actively equip employees with information about their health benefits can help them feel less of a financial burden, maintain higher job satisfaction and make the most of their care.

This course is certified by the Human Resources Certification Institute® for continuing education credit and has been approved for 1 HR recertification credit hour through HR Certification Institute®.

During the webinar, participants will learn about alternative, cost-saving options for employees’ care, including consumer-driven health plans (CDHPs). These health benefits have emerged as a viable employee care option by way of high-deductible health plans (HDHPs), Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) or Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs).

Consumer-driven health plans put employees in the driver’s seat of their health care, often presenting a lower-cost option to more traditional plans. On average, HDHP premiums were 42 percent lower than those of individual PPO premiums. It’s no wonder that 70 percent of large employers offered employees at least one high-deductible health plan this year as either an add-on to a traditional health plan or replacement for traditional coverage.
