Why a Private Exchange? A Private Exchange Answers These Top 10 Questions.

Why a Private Exchange?

  1. Defined Contribution: I don’t want to get involved in peoples individual health insurance needs. How does the Employer extricate from this very personal and important employee need and yet still offer this benefit? I like the defined contribution similar to a 401k.

 

  1. Tax Advantages: How do I offer the group and employee pre-tax advantages not offered on an individual basis?

 

  1. Group Insurance Upgrade: How do I upgrade from the diminishing individual market and meet strict group underwriting? Rates are higher, smaller networks and lower benefits in this segment.

 

  1. Full Fortune 500 Benefits: How do I offer balanced voluntary benefits similar to a Fortune 500 company? Some employees are asking for group discounted dental, vision, disability, life insurance and supplemental coverage such as AFLAC but we can’t guarantee the minimum participations.

 

  1. Simplify: I don’t have the time needed to make annual plan changes. How do I empower my employees with choice, education and various networks to make their own choices? Many times I’d just rather absorb the 10% increase than deal with the changes.

 

  1. Choice: I have employees all over the Metro area. How can you help me offer more than 1 or 2 health plans as benefits have become more complex and networks increasingly narrow geographic sensitive in nature?

 

  1. Technologies: Can you give me the technologies needed to make this paperless? Do you have a platform that I can use as an intranet communication portal? Can I securely store documents such Employee handbooks and notification?

 

  1. Added Value: Can you offer additional supporting tools aside from technology? Do you have COBRA and section 125 cafeteria documents?

 

  1. HR: Do you have an HR Services for Employers Support? Will you have employee support such as a 24/7 independent CS concierge services?

 

  1. Personalization: Will I have an in person experienced knowledgeable consultant available for support on plan design, metrics, and customer care and employee open enrollment?
