EMPLOYEE FLEXIBLE BENEFIT PLANS
EMPLOYERS PROVIDE THE COVERAGE THAT IS NEEDED WITHOUT EXTRA COST
What is the Advantage of Flexible Benefit Plans?
With flexible benefits, employees are able to choose the benefits they want / need and the level of coverage and cost that is best suited for them.
Flexible Benefit Plans:
Allow employees to select a plan and coverage with benefit options that are catered specifically to their needs and the needs of their family. Employees use credits that is allocated by the employer to purchase their extra health and dental benefits. Employees can choose their benefits to enhance coverage they need to best utilize their benefits and the employers resources to their life situations.
Benefit Customization is Now Possible
Employers are looking to customize their benefits to their employees needs.
A New Approach to Benefits
Extra benefit choice for healthcare, including medical, dental, and vision coverage with PHSP credits, paying the premiums.
Because wage increases aren’t keeping up with the increasing healthcare costs, people are spending more of their income on their health than ever before, with no evidence of slowing down.
HOW DO FLEXIBLE BENEFIT PLANS WORK?
Flexible benefit plans provide employees with the ability to choose the benefits they want or need, and refrain from the ones they don’t want. An employer provides a number of benefits, and employees can choose which ones apply to them, creating a comprehensive benefits package tailored to their unique needs.
Flexible benefit plans often include health insurance, retirement benefits, and reimbursement accounts. Employees can use their credits to pay for health or other family care, providing them stability in life. Flexible benefit expenses are paid with pre-tax income which lowers the taxable income of the employee and the expenses are a tax deductible expense.
