The dilemma of providing competitive employee healthcare while adhering to strict overhead budgets can be a never-ending challenge for many nonprofits. This is especially true for community health centers, which often struggle to provide their staff with the very thing their missions stand for – quality, affordable healthcare.
But where there’s a will there’s a way, and health centers around the US are starting to realize that there are innovative alternatives to expensive, traditional fully-funded healthcare. These alternative approaches to employee healthcare can not only provide a competitive health insurance plan, but also save organizations time and money. One such health center is estimated to save 22 percent annually on healthcare, while improving benefits and eliminating employee out-of-pocket costs - saving staff $120,000 per year in copays, coinsurance, and deductibles.
So how can other community health centers make this happen for their organization and employees?
Join the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association with us on April 13, 2016 for a free webinar entitled Creating a Health Benefits Package for Recruiting and Retention. The webinar will highlight affordable, alternative options to traditional care and the ways health benefits can contribute to recruitment and retention efforts. Our healthcare program, Nonstop Wellness, uses partially self-funded insurance to provide improved benefits at a reduced cost for both nonprofits and their employees. The National Association of Community Health Centers will also take part in the webinar, providing background on the specific challenges health centers encounter when it comes to staffing.
Creating a Health Benefits Package for Recruiting and Retention will take place on Wednesday April 13, 2016 at 1pm. NWRPCA members can sign up to participate in the free webinar by visiting http://www.nwrpca.org/event/nonstopwebinar. The webinar will also be accessible afterwards at no cost as a recording at www.nonstopwellness.com. We hope you can join us!
