With the uncertainty of health reform, products like Dental, Disability, and Life are becoming more important than ever before. Finding ways to enhance these traditional plans and package them with newer plans like Critical Illness is a good starting point for addressing employer needs.
A large dental network, efficient disability claims management, and lump sum payments for critical illnesses are strong selling points because they add value to current plans and help to fill the gaps created by changing medical coverage.
You should also think about programs and services that can help solve problems that traditional plans can’t. Voluntary benefits, Section 125 plans, absence management plans, tax-leveraged benefits, employee assistance programs, and ASO plans are all innovative ways to help employers provide valuable services at a reasonable cost.
