Choosing a healthcare insurance plan for your business:
- Employers know that employee retention and access to talented employees are keys to running a successful business.
- Benefits are a critical piece of an employee compensation package, and health care benefits are often the most important benefit to the employee and their families.
- Health care benefits, along with vacation benefits, are the most sought-after of benefits to employees.
A new consideration will also be to avoid penalties imposed by the Affordable Care Act in the future once the employer mandate is rolled out.
