Choosing a health plan that helps your employees stay healthy is a key decision for many employers. There are countless benefits when providing a comprehensive health plan that employees can afford — including increased productivity, improved morale, and better employee satisfaction. When employees are healthier, your business sees benefits.
Many benefits packages feature a high deductible health plan (HDHP). HDHPs result in hefty out-of-pocket expenses, typically discouraging individuals from seeking necessary preventive or medical care due to financial burden. As of 2022, the IRS defines HDHP as any plan with a deductible of at least $1,400 for an individual or $2,800 for a family.
At Curative, we believe that healthcare should be affordable. We’ve developed a health plan focused on prevention and wellness, with no copays and no deductibles, as long as members complete a Baseline Visit in the first 120 days. With complete cost transparency and affordability, employees feel comfortable getting the care they need, when they need it.
Here’s a breakdown of how Curative compares to the average HDHP — and why investing in your employees is investing in your business.
Employer considerations when choosing a plan:
What health care services do you want to be covered by your insurance plan?
Do the out-of-pocket expenses that come with a high-deductible health plan match your employees’ budget?
Do your employees have the ability to cover unexpected medical emergencies?
Ultimately, the choice of health insurance comes down to what is best for the health of your employees, your business, and your community.
