Health benefits top the list in employee must-haves, but it is the most expensive benefit to provide. Only 47% of firms with 3 to 9 workers offer coverage. Businesses who can afford to provide health insurance are faced with passing this year’s hikes to their employees. The average annual premiums for employer-sponsored health insurance in 2018 are $6,896 for single coverage and $19,616 for family coverage. (Kaiser Family Foundation)
Pay employees to visit the family doctor
Health care benefits might be expensive, but the wellness of your employees is priceless. Traditional insurance plans might be out of reach, but if you could choose one benefit for your employees, pay them to visit the family doctor. Known as Primary Care Physicians, they attend to your overall wellness, manage chronic illnesses and keep you on track with screenings that prevent serious conditions or catch them early. The family doctor can save you and your employee’s thousands in future out-of-pocket medical expenses, improve quality of life, and increase job satisfaction.
