Employee Benefits

Tailored Strategies

 

A Custom Approach

 

The increasingly disrupted, confusing, and complex health care system in the United States has created challenges to employers to manage costs as well as compliance. GoodWorks Financial Group will collaborate with you to deliver consistent outcomes on your employee benefits programs. With our team standing next to you, we will help you streamline administration and boost employee engagement, all while focusing on cost savings.

We believe in taking a custom approach to your program rather than using a one-size-fits-all solution. We also understand the current insurance market and the suite of insurance products and services associated with your risks.  Moreover, because of our deep industry knowledge, we have a handle on your pain points, which allows us to develop a tailored strategy to meet all of your benefits needs.

Delivering positive financial impacts and creative benefits solutions that exceed your expectations is what we do.

+ EAP Services

The employee assistance program (EAP) is a work-based intervention program designed to identify and assist employees in resolving personal problems (e.g., marital, financial or emotional problems, family issues, substance/alcohol abuse) that may be adversely affecting employee performance. EAP IS offered through GoodWorks Insurance Solutions at no cost to our clients.


+ Enrollment/Employee Communication Services

Whether on line or on paper, putting employee benefits information into the hands of employees is an important part of any benefits strategy. Employees can only appreciate benefits when they fully understand them. GoodWorks Insurance Solutions gives you an array of options to communicate the benefits you design and maintain, including enrollment information, benefit statements, and ongoing training and communications.


+ Executive Benefits

Significant risk may hide in your executive benefit plans:

  • Standard group coverage for long-term disability often won’t replace bonus income which makes up a significant portion of executive compensation.
  • Standard group coverage for life insurance is based on salary, not bonus, and often has a cap of $500,000.
  • A target retirement income replacement rate can’t be reached for many executives based on contribution limits.

+ FSA/HSA Administration

FSA/FHA plans can be complicated for both the employer and employee. Our dedicated professionals are here to help clients better understand the intricacies of this program.

  • Debit card availability
  • Health care and dependent care accounting
  • Online account management
  • Dedicated customer service team
  • Direct deposit capability
  • Quarterly statements

While both the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have now been fully implemented, we anticipate there will be continual modifications. In the future, our team of professionals will be here to guide clients through the complexity of changes as they occur.

Our advisors will help you make the right decisions by assessing your business and providing you with:

  • A full in-depth audit of your current plans in relation to new laws/regulations
  • Controlled Group Determination and Exposure
  • Applicable Large Employer Determination
  • Affordability Calculator (Employee Portion of Premium ≤ 9.5%)
  • Metal Level Equivalency/ Minimum Value/ Actuarial Value of Current Medical Plan(s)
  • Wellness Strategies and minimizing exposure under ACA
  • Plan funding arrangement exploration and strategies

+ Loss Mitigation Services

Data analytics is essential to measuring your employees' health. With MyWave Connect©, we can help you identify the risks faced by your employee population. We can also use pharmacy analytics to assist you in driving down the costs of your pharmacy program.

Personalized employer solutions, focused on outcomes, can lead to cost savings on medical and pharmacy spending. Employees held responsible for healthy lifestyles and ongoing care choices share accountability with their employers for the expense of healthcare. GoodWorks Insurance Solutions measures performance for employers along the way, delivering solutions, oversight, and results. Working together we will implement a customized approach to long-term healthcare and pharmacy cost reduction that fits your company's business goals and culture.


+ Self-Funded and Fully-Insured Health Plans

Fully-insured plans are more traditional than self-funded plans. However, fully-insured plans are generally more expensive for employers, as the name implies. GoodWorks Insurance Solutions is here to help our clients better understand the complexities of both.

  • Access to participant web site regarding their claims and balances
  • Quality control on all claims to prevent eligibility issues
  • Full subrogation and cost of benefit administration
  • Bundling and unbundling capabilities and full code review
  • HIPAA policies and privacy standards

Health and well-being are tightly linked. That’s why many employers are finding it helpful to look beyond traditional medical benefits to address some of the challenges that affect their employees’ well-being. At GoodWorks Insurance Solutions, we help companies like yours create personalized programs that focus on:

  • Physical well-being, such as managing or avoiding chronic conditions
  • Mental health concerns, such as depression or stress
  • Social issues, such as childcare and work-life balance
