Los Angeles – Aug. 16, 2016 – The Affordable Care Act helped many gain access to affordable healthcare that they would not have been able to purchase otherwise. It also shifted the burden of many healthcare benefits to the shoulders of employees as companies worked to balance out the increased healthcare costs.
Trustmark Voluntary Benefit Solutions, a national voluntary benefits company based out of Lake Forest, Ill., offers insurance products to help policyholders cover out-of-pocket expenses and feel more financially secure. Products such as life insurance with long-term care, accident insurance, critical illness insurance with early stage diagnosis and disability are just a few.
Dan Kraft, Vice President of Product and Innovation with Trustmark says, “A recent Kaiser study found that healthcare costs have increased by 61%. Employers are now being challenged with how to manage that cost while still being able to offer affordable healthcare options to employees. Much of the cost is being shifted to the employee creating angst, and frustration with employees.”
In this segment you will learn:
- Why carriers should focus first on client solutions and then move to a product discussion.
- When designing products, why it’s important to ask consumers first and test later.
- The impact the ACA is having on employees, their understanding of benefits and why personalized enrollment and communication solutions are needed now more than ever.
Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business, JL Haber, states, “Trustmark does something that most voluntary benefit solutions companies really fail to do: they listen to the client and work around their specific needs to create unique and to-the-point solutions.”
