How are you Teaching Employees Consumerism?

Written by

Current benefit plans have given more purchasing and decision-making power to the members with higher out-of-pocket responsibilities. Members do not always understand what their benefit plans cover, and the costs associated to that coverage, which can cause a lot of confusion and frustration. 

We at Fall River Employee Benefits understand that benefit plans can be an intimidating and confusing subject. We want to empower and educate our client’s employees to be their own best health advocates and make informed decisions regarding their health care. 

We love helping our clients create year-round campaigns to teach their employees to be better consumers of health care. There are many topics to cover, so we’ll likely do several articles in this area.
