HospitalityCare and PAI's other limited benefit plans do not include catastrophic coverage, but offer a basic plan to provide coverage for day-to-day health care needs, including doctor's office visits and prescription drugs. The plans also provide coverage for other services, including maternity care, minor surgery, outpatient care and more, as well as access to the largest PPO network and a 24-hour nurse adviser line. Vision, dental, life and short-term disability benefits also are available.
"Service industries like restaurants, grocers, retailers, temporary staffing and hospitality are seeking cost-effective solutions for attracting and retaining hourly employees, and many companies are turning to limited health benefits to meet their goals," said David Huntington, PAI's president and chief operating officer.
"Companies offering health benefits often experience a substantial reduction in employee turnover rates, leading to lower costs associated with hiring and training, improved customer service, and better employee morale."
Employees pay for HospitalityCare through convenient payroll deductions that generally equal about two hours' pay each week. Dependent and family coverage also is available. Employers have the option of whether or not to contribute to employee premiums.
