According to NWRPCA data “recruiting and retaining highly-skilled, mission driven staff is the perennial problem” for CHCs with inadequate compensation listed as one of the main challenges. Health benefits contribute significantly to the compensation puzzle primarily because US workers across all fields rate healthcare as the most important benefit when looking for a new job. And while making quality healthcare affordable and accessible to all is the number one goal for CHCs, tight bottom lines and rising healthcare costs often make it challenging to extend that offering to their own employees.
This 60-minute webinar (which includes 15 minutes for Q&A) will introduce an innovative way CHCs can strengthen their healthcare benefits packages to be more attractive to current and potential staff. Specific guidance will be provided on how to create improved, customized insurance plans that meet the needs of CHC employees, while also saving valuable – and much needed – dollars for both employers and employees.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Know the key differences between fully-funded, self-funded, and partially self-funded healthcare, as well as innovative alternative options to traditional care
- Better understand the barriers – and opportunities – that health benefits contribute to recruitment and retention
- Have the knowledge to determine if partial self-insurance is a viable option for their organization
As Community Liaisons, Danielle and Rachel educate potential clients about partial self-insurance, collaborate with them to create custom plans, and provide personalized and targeted savings analyses.
