Blue Shield – Trio HMO and Tandem PPO Cost-Reducing Options and Bonus

Posted by

To help employers who may be experiencing financial difficulties due to COVID-19, Blue Shield is offering the option of a one-time off-anniversary plan downgrade through September 30, 2020. Buy-down plans may be selected from within the current plan type: PPO to PPO or HMO to HMO.

Consider switching your groups to Blue Shield’s lower cost Trio HMO and Tandem PPO plans without reducing their employees’ coverage.

With high-value coverage and even more features than Blue Shield’s full network plans – Trio and Tandem plans come with noticeably lower premiums. While the networks are somewhat smaller, some employees may already be seeing doctors in the Trio and Tandem networks and may be able to keep their doctors and have lower out-of-pocket costs.

Trio and Tandem Benefits

New Medical Incentive Program Bonus
Earn up to $100 per enrolled member in Trio HMO and Tandem PPO plans, effective dates September 1, 2020, through January 1, 2021.

2020 Principal Financial Well-Being Index Finds Businesses Growing

Posted by

In its seventh edition released in July, the Principal Financial Well-Being Index for Business Owners gathered insights from 500 leaders at companies from 2 to 10,000 employees for a look at how COVID-19 has affected how they do business, how it’s impacted their customers and employees, and what they plan to do moving forward during recovery.

Four Big Takeways

  1. Businesses have tried to maintain staffing.
    – 76% haven’t cut staff.
    – The two most popular cost-saving options are a hiring freeze and other budget cuts (such as travel).
  2. Employee well-being remains a clear priority.
    – Fewer than 15% of businesses plan to reduce employee benefits. Some plan to expand them in response to COVID-19.
    – 21% plan to boost mental health and well-being programs.
    – 20% are increasing healthcare benefits.
  3. They’re adapting to uncertainty.
    – 66% of businesses expect to recover economically within a year.
    – Three popular reactions to COVID-19: increased cleaning (48%), more employees working remotely (39%), and increasing cash on hand (26%).
  4. Federal help is making a difference for small businesses and their employees.
    – One-third of small businesses (2-500 employees) received federal assistance.
    – 77% are spending the stimulus on payroll.
    – 58% are also spending assistance on employee benefits.
