Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
As health care exchanges go online as a result of health care reform and fewer businesses are burdened with a full health care plan, voluntary benefits are becoming a bigger part of employee benefit packages.
United Benefits Advisors predicts ancillary, which includes voluntary employee benefits will be a greater differentiator in 2013 than ever before, and UBA’s Ancillary Products Survey, with responses from nearly 12,000 employers, indicates vast differences in ancillary benefits offered by employer size, region and industry. For example, only 0.5 percent of the employers in the survey offer on-site clinics, however among employers responding to the question with more than 500 employees, the average was 7.4 percent.
Most employers want to maximize their benefit offering while being cost conscious, and employees want more choice in selecting benefits that best meet their specific needs. Effective benefit education and enrollment are crucial to minimize HR headaches and for employees to make smart benefit decisions.
To help employers develop an effective voluntary benefits strategy, United Benefit Advisors (UBA), in conjunction with the Principal Financial Group®is hosting a free webinar, “Maximize Your Employee Benefit Dollars with Voluntary Benefits,” on Sept. 26 at 2 p.m. EDT.
