Closing the Coverage Gap
Thursday, August 25, 2016 | 2:00 p.m. Eastern time
Even before the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) upturned today's health care system, high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) were becoming the norm for employer-sponsored plans. HDHPs make financial sense for many groups because they lower monthly insurance premiums, as compared to low-deductible plans, and encourage employees to be better health care consumers. But for some employees, meeting high deductibles can be a challenge.
During this one-hour webinar, you'll hear more about the challenges facing employers today and practical solutions to help close this coverage gap.
