What is Group Insurance?
A group insurance policy is purchased by an employer (or employee organization) and is offered to eligible participants, and/or eligible dependents of participants. With group insurance, the risk is spread over the company — the number of participants covered.
Benefits packages offer value to your employees and help you boost productivity and retention in a cost-effective manner. There are many advantages to offering employee benefits as part of your compensation package.
Let's Develop a Benefits Package!
Health insurance can be a dynamic asset for your company because it attracts talented employees and encourages them to seek timely medical attention, thus minimizing the costs associated with absenteeism and major medical claims.
Dental plans are a common addition to employer benefit packages. Dental insurance encourages dental hygiene and maintenance, which often prevents more severe health problems from occurring.
Group life insurance is coverage that employers offer to employees only. Coverage may be employer or employee paid. Often, employers offer a specified benefit that is cost free for employees, then offer the option for employees to purchase additional coverage.
This insurance provides income protection to employees who are unable to work due to injury or illness occurring outside of the work environment. These plans can be either short-term or long-term and can be funded by either the employer or employee.
Voluntary benefits add additional value to your core compensation and benefits package. When an employee is offered these benefits they are able to pick and choose which they would like to participate in. These benefits can be insurance based or non-insurance based.
Group Employer Assisted Benefits
This category incorporates a variety of additional benefits including Flexible Spending Accounts, Health Savings Accounts, Cafeteria Plans, Compliance documents, and more.
