Proposed New Benefits Fact Sheet
Looks like the new benefits information form has been drafted in rough. Take a look at it here http://www.healthcare.gov/news/factsheets/labels08172011b.pdf. Once the comment period expires and any adjustments are made it will be finalized and put into place beginning 2012. Here’s what I believe: benefit providers and their client companies should already be providing this level of information to employees…at the minimum. It’s a great outline to follow for training on benefits. Maybe even provide a quiz afterwards to reinforce the learning and make sure they “get” what you want them to get.
Fact is, employers need to get a bang for the benefit buck. The best way to do that is with constant education around those benefits.
