The Wednesday Question: “Is finding and providing healthcare for you and your employees killing your business? Or have you found a healthy solution to answer this ever increasing challenge? In a variety of recent conversations the healthcare question keeps rising to the top as it relates to the small business owner and entrepreneur. What is the best way to find a healthy cost effective option for you, your family and employees? The rising costs of health insurance and sweeping changes in reform are challenging to decipher to say the least. After all healthy employees are critical to making sure your business operates at optimal level.
More details. . .
I started thinking more about this when I recently asked Elliot Richardson of the Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) to speak at my networking group’s, North Shore Entrepreneurial Network (NSEN), meeting this coming May. A recent SBAC Newsletter discusses how “The SBAC has been working with Arthur J. Gallagher on a health insurance initiative that would stabilize the costs of health insurance for our members. Through the power of critical mass, the SBAC will attempt to form a health insurance pool to further this goal.”
For the typical business owner healthcare is only one of the challenges we all face. Perhaps you have already found the answer for this one. So the question restated is, “how are you addressing the increasing challenges of providing healthcare benefits to you and your employees?”
Looking forward to hearing your comments. . .
