Don’t risk being half-informed about your workplace health plan.
Do you fully understand your benefits plan at work? Your employer may think you and your co-workers need no further explanation, but you might beg to differ.
How well is your employer informing you about it? In mid-2014, Alegeus Technologies – a major U.S. processor of benefit accounts and healthcare claims – conducted an independent study and found that while 79% of employers felt that they were providing “excellent” or “very good” clarity of content and depth of information about benefits plans, less than 65% of consumers felt that way. In addition, only 53% of consumers rated employer communication frequency about benefits plans as “excellent” or “very good.”1
