NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Clarity Benefit Solutions simplifies online benefit administration for brokers, employers, and consumers. The company's technology and services are designed to save time and lower the costs of managing benefits while also promoting employee self-service and automated ACA compliance.
When it comes to helping employees select the appropriate benefits, offering the right information in the proper format may be difficult to navigate. Clarity Benefit Solutions offers four tips to facilitate consumer benefit selection.
1. Offer the proper mix of benefits. First and foremost, employee participation is contingent upon employee satisfaction. Ask employees which type of plans they prefer, how much they know about current plans, suggestions for additional benefits in the future, and how they like to receive information on benefits.
2. Make information available in multiple formats. Know that each employee is unique and therefore it is necessary to offer benefits information in a number of formats. Provide consistent information in print, email, website, and social media formats—and make sure this information is provided in advance. During open enrollment periods, a group meeting with a presentation and a Q&A will prove beneficial. List the dates of open enrollment in a number of places.
3. Educate them on the basics. Knowledge is power, so don't forget to remind employees about mandated and administered benefits like Medicare, worker's compensation, and social security. Include information on the Affordable Care Act if it pertains to your company. If you are offering a mix of core and voluntary benefits, clearly outline the differences between the two to avoid confusion.
4. Personalize benefit plan selection. Each employee will have different health needs and different financial situations. Therefore, it is imperative that each employee is able to determine what plan will best suit his her or her needs. It is up to the employer to use the aforementioned methods to paint a clear picture so the employee is able to easily choose the appropriate benefit package.
