Employee Advocacy Program (EAP)
The main reason EAP was created was to help employees avoid financial hardships during a medical crisis by having adequate health insurance coverage.
Small group employer coverage have smaller risk corridors, meaning less covered lives means more financial risk to the carrier, one catastrophic illness in a group can spike cost for the carrier, and as cost goes up they have a tendency to shift the financial burden to the employer in the form of annual premium increases. More employer are dropping coverage or reducing benefits to contain cost.
Another problem, in most group environments there is at least one self appointed company administrator that tries to manage the group on their own. Group plans are typically a one size fits all with limited plan options. By adopting the EAP we cater to the individual, with benefit experts who can provide better service and more comprehensive coverage to your employees on an individual basis.
