If you’re confused about healthcare, don’t feel bad; many small businesses are in the same boat because so much information came all at once and then nothing. The media published responses to questions like…
· Q: Will it cost the employer more? A: That depends.
· Q: Will it cost the employee more? A: That too depends.
When you hear that, it’s no wonder we are all confused.
NSCA has created a healthcare resource on its website (www.nsca.org/healthcare) to help answer some of the questions systems integrators have been asking us over the past couple of weeks. More important, though, NSCA is always a resource to help members find and implement cost-saving measures. Now, reducing healthcare costs or ensuring your healthcare costs don’t increase is how NSCA can help you once again.
Our best advice to our members continues to be to follow what many other companies in the industry have already done: jump on the SystemsPlus™ Health Solutions plan. Basically, NSCA created an industry-specific pool or exchange for our industry. The program has many other great benefits, some that will put cash back in your pockets, specific wellness programs and even better, more of our small business members will be eligible to participate in the program.
