Let’s face it, there’s much about the continued rising cost of health care that you don’t have much control over. You can’t change the medical needs of a premature baby on your health plan, or change the costly medical and prescription treatment needed for chronic conditions in your employee population. However, you may have access to data from your insurance carrier that may help you get a better grasp on items that might help you curb your overall healthcare costs.

Effective June 27, 2016, the Colorado Medicaid program is now called Health First Colorado. The new name reflects the significant changes that have been made to modernize Colorado’s Medicaid program to engage members and improve the quality and coordination of care. The name itself – Health First Colorado – aims to convey Colorado’s commitment to putting its residents’ health first, as well as encourage its 1.3 million members to put their own health first.

Mental Health Compliance in the Workplace

Written by
Last month we wrote about mental health awareness in the workplace. This month we’d like to bring your attention to compliance surrounding mental health issues, and how not following proper procedure could cost your company profoundly.
 
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against individuals with mental and emotional impairments in companies with at least 15 employees. But how do you know if the ADA rules apply to the situation at hand? If a mental health impairment is brought to your attention, what do you need to do?
Traveling abroad for work can be an exciting experience but anything can happen while you're away from home. Losing your passport, malaria, auto accident, food poisoning – it's important to be prepared for any unexpected illness, injury or medical emergency. Unfortunately, most domestic medical plans reimburse after the fact for emergencies only, and simply are not designed for regular international travel. 
 
It’s no secret that the quality of healthcare can vary widely around the world. The quality of care your expatriate employees experience in their new country may not be to the standard they were used to back home, nor are they likely entitled to any free or subsidized national healthcare. As an international employer, it’s important to provide the proper type of medical coverage for your employees. You want to ensure that they receive worldwide access to quality care, superior international claims administration, and 24-7 translation, logistics, and medical evacuation service.
