Benefits are driving you and your employees insane. So should your plans be tinkered with this year? Or is there a better way to provide coverage that is comfortable, reasonable, and secure for ALL involved – you and your employees? Would you be interested if you could find plans that were designed with everyone’s needs in mind?
The Given State of Health Care: What You Can Count On
In the uncertain and ever-evolving state of health care, here is what you’ve most likely concluded. You know you need to figure what to do. You know that the current status-quo for your health care options is far from ideal. You know that typically you sign up for a “one-size-fits-all” plan and let’s face it – no one really believes this meets everyone’s needs – especially after one needs medical coverage… oh and sees the bill! Then and only then does the employee who is now signed up for this “general” plan, know if it’s well-suited for his or her needs. This leads to the annual balancing act of determining benefits versus costs! Every year premiums get higher and higher. You simply can’t afford to pay the high premiums and you’re completely saturated—fed up to your nostrils—with making open enrollment the annual pay cut announcement. Each year you think: “There has to be a better way!” Does this sound about right – are these the facts as you know them? Well you’re right, at least about one thing. There is a better way – Bright Choices! Bridgeport has turned everything you know about employee benefits upside down with the Bright Choices Exchange. So what you thought you knew isn’t quite on-target. The Bright Choices program is simple, so simple it’s brilliant (thus the self-congratulatory, albeit deserved ‘bright’ reference). You choose how much you want to pay for benefits. Employees choose which benefits are right for them. Sounds too easy, right? Good – we designed it that way!
How Does The Bright Choice Exchange Work?
The Bright Choices Exchange is an online benefits store where employees use money allocated by you to buy the coverage they need from top national and regional providers. When an employee goes to the site s/he will see The Bright Choices online questionnaire. Each question is designed to analyze an employee’s individual needs to find out things like their financial status, health history, whether they wear glasses, or if their kids need braces. It also looks at possible health events. The questions are even designed to assess whether an employee is worried about things like sports accidents or diabetes in the future maybe based on family history or lifestyle. Bright Choices works to help employees build an online individualized health portfolio that’s right for them and their families while also educating them on how to use the benefits they’ve chosen. Here is the best and brightest part…You control the costs and the employees get the coverage they need! You will never have to make cuts again to make sure your employees are getting the best benefits for their needs. Good benefits should and can go beyond basic health care. And we have achieved that goal. Bright Choices makes sure you and your employees are covered no matter what life throws at you. Simply a better way to buy benefits – let people buy what they want! Imagine that? It doesn’t get any better than Bridgeport and The Bright Choices program. Everything we do is designed with your needs in mind.
