Group Accident Insurance
Protecting employees when the unexpected happens.
Group accident insurance to help cover your employees.
The cost of major medical health insurance is on the rise year after year. It's also increasingly harder to offer employees a robust benefits package. Plans such as group accident insurance are an easy way to add value. Whether paid for by the employer or employee, the end result is financial protection for your employees when an accident occurs.
Group accident insurance adds another layer to your benefits.
No one ever sees an accident coming. However, group accident insurance can help employees with the financial strain that can result from an injury. Millions of people are injured every year and seek medical care as a result. Ambulance charges, emergency room copays, deductibles, co-insurance—the expenses can add up fast.
Lump sum payments can be used for whatever the employee needs.
Group accident insurance plans typically pay out a lump sum when an accident occurs. The amount could be based on the type of injury sustained, the type of treatment rendered, or a combination. The money can be treated by the employee as reimbursement for expenses they incurred. However, they can also use it to pay for additional child care, transportation, or any other needs. The amount paid by the group accident plan is generally paid regardless of the out-of-pocket expenses leftover after health insurance pays.
Additional riders are often available.
Many group accident insurance policies have additional riders available to meet the needs of your population. For example, this can include benefits for when an employee and their family stay accident-free for a period, a wellness benefit for obtaining preventative care, hospital confinement, accidental death and dismemberment, and more.
Increased payouts for child athletes could be possible.
Children may be more prone to accidents than adults. However, children who play sports like football, soccer, lacrosse, and other sports have a higher chance of becoming injured. Many group accident plans include higher benefits for children who are injured while participating in organized sports.

Group Health Insurance
Health plans for your business.
Group health insurance to help cover your employees.
In general, group health insurance is the first priority for employees and is the second largest expense for employers behind payroll. We'll help you navigate the healthcare process so you can hire and retain top talent.
Group Health Insurance
One of the main factors in attracting and retaining good employees is the benefit program offered by employers. This typically starts with your group health insurance plan.
Regardless of the company's financials, there are ways to make health insurance available to your employees and their dependents. Offering health insurance doesn't have to break the bank. There are many solutions available to small, mid-size, and large employers.
Group Life Insurance
When employees are worried about their financial situation, they may not be as productive. Many individuals today do not have life insurance or adequate savings to cover final expenses, which places additional stress on employees and/or their families when the need arises.
A group life insurance plan can put your employees' minds at ease, knowing their family will have resources available when they need them. Policies can also include a dependent benefit to help the employee pay for expenses if their dependent passes. Another solution is to offer a voluntary life benefit whereby the employee pays a lower premium through payroll deduction than they would if they found coverage on their own. Group life insurance is also tax deductible.
Many employers are faced with offering lower wages than their competitors and find it difficult to find and retain qualified workers.
Offering a short-term and/or a long-term disability program can provide prospective and current workers with another form of financial stability. An employee may be offered a higher wage elsewhere, but are they offered protection if that paycheck stops due to pregnancy, illness, or other disability? How will they pay the mortgage or other bills? Employers offering a disability plan can provide peace of mind to their employees and gain an advantage over those that don't.
Group Dental Coverage
Failure to have regular dental checkups can lead to more serious problems than a toothache.
Offering dental coverage to your employees can help encourage them to see a dentist on a regular basis. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease as well as diabetes. Catching these issues early not only helps your employees' health, it may help reduce your long-term health insurance costs before a big claim hits!
Vision Care Coverage
Similar to dental coverage, if your employees are not getting regular eye exams, they may have underlying medical conditions such as heart disease or diabetes that can surface later at a greater expense to your medical plan.
Offering vision care coverage is a very affordable component to offering health benefits. It's an inexpensive portion of the benefit package with a high value of return and can help offset the impact of increased medical costs, becoming a cost-effective, early intervention tool.
Not being able to meet an employee's individual needs can pose a threat to worker retention and attracting new talent, both of which can be costly to your bottom line.
Offering voluntary coverage lets your employees choose benefits that are important to them. It's a cost-effective way to provide a variety of benefits at little or no impact to your monthly premiums. Examples of voluntary coverage include:
- Critical illness, hospital indemnity, and cancer coverage.
- Life, dependent life, short-term, and long-term disability coverage.
- Dental care.
- Vision care.
Compliance audits are increasing and Department of Labor fines can be costly. Do you have all of the documents and paperwork at your fingertips should you receive an audit letter?
A good benefits broker will educate you on the compliance pieces so that you are prepared for that dreaded day. A wrap document covers most of what is required and the remaining forms should be readily accessible with proof of distribution to employees and/or eligible participants.
How the costs of coverage are determined.
The costs associated with group health insurance vary depending on where your business is based, how many employees you want to cover, and how old the employees are.
How the Affordable Care Act affects group health insurance.
Since the Affordable Care Act took effect, the medical history and pre-existing conditions of the employees don't matter. Because you're pooling the risk with group health insurance, the price your business pays per employee is usually much less than the average amount they'd pay if they bought insurance individually.
Potential tax benefits available to employers.
Group health insurance also comes with tax benefits. The premiums you pay as an employer are fully tax-deductible. Very small businesses can also get a tax credit worth up to half the cost of the premiums.
