NOVEMBER 14, 2016 – VALDOSTA – Open enrollment can be a stressful time for employees, but companies can help ease the pain. It is important that employees understand their benefits. Taylor Insurance Services can help companies by providing one-on-one benefit counseling leading up to the open enrollment period to help employees make the best choice for themselves, their families, their lifestyles and their budgets. .
Research shows that HR professionals believe that individual counseling is the most effective enrollment education tool, ahead of group meetings and Web-based counseling. Other research shows that employees are typically not proactive in learning about their benefit plans, and prefer face-to-face meetings for benefits communication.
“Despite recognizing its value, many companies fail to provide a one-on-one benefit meeting for each employee due to cost.,” explains Trey Taylor, CEO and president of Taylor Insurance Services. “In most cases this can be achieved at no cost to the company if they have a benefits expert, that person could facilitate the personal meetings.”
Taylor Insurance has found that one-on-one benefit counseling can provide the following benefits for companies:
Actively engage employees in the benefits enrollment process.
Educate employees about the benefits they have, including voluntary benefits they think they might not need, or may not understand.
Help employees make better decisions about choosing benefits that are fitting for their lifestyle, medical health, family and budget.
Help employees realize what is being spent for their benefits and the value of what is provided.
Gain better employee appreciation for the benefits offered. This can help with retention initiatives and improve employee morale.
Achieve a better return on investment for their benefits programs.

Beginning in 2020, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will levy a 40 percent excise tax on health plans that are deemed to be overly generous. This tax, also known as the “Cadillac tax,” will affect health plans that cost more than $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family. The Cadillac Tax is designed to encourage companies to choose lower-cost employee health plans and to raise revenue to fund other ACA provisions.
Though the Affordable Care Act was signed into existence by President Obama six years ago, the continued rollout of associated programs and requirements still has employers nervous with regards fulfilling obligations and avoiding penalties. Compliance is a major concern for employee benefits managers, and the tension continues to mount as more limits and restrictions are placed on employers regarding what coverage may be offered..
Employee Benefit News discusses employers’ main concerns in a recent article about ACA and the future of the cadillac text.
