For Employers

Employers have a stake in their employees’ financial health. 

The rising costs of providing healthcare benefits to employees has created a shift in financial responsibility resulting in higher deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance for employees

The bigger problem is no employee plans to get sick, so employees struggle with the ability to meet their financial responsibilities for their medical care. The result; US Medical Debt becoming the leading cause of personal bankruptcy in the U.S.

Financial Stress caused by this reality is having a negative affect on worker productivity.

The Problem

“43 percent of insured patients said they delayed or skipped physician-recommended tests or treatment because of high associated costs.”- Kaiser Family Foundation

The results of these delays include

  1. Higher claims experience and overall healthcare costs to the employer
  2. Decreased worker productivity due to complications caused by delayed treatment
  3. Frustrations and anger pointed to the employer from the employees that need care.
  4. Inequitable care provided to employees due to economic status
  5. Decreased Retention and employee morale

“There is nothing wrong with employees sharing the costs for healthcare, however it is every employers’ responsibility to help their  employees understand and afford their costs prior to care”

… Christopher Wolfington, CEO FinPay
