August 2016 Wisdom Workplace Webinar

Closing the Coverage Gap

Thursday, Aug 28, 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT

Even before the Affordable Care Act (ACA) upturned today's health care system, high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) were becoming the norm for employer-sponsored plans. HDHPs make financial sense for many groups because they offer lower monthly insurance premiums, as compared to low-deductible plans, and encourage employees to be better health care consumers. But for some employees, meeting high deductibles can be a challenge.

During this one hour webinar, you'll hear more about the challenges facing employers today and practical solutions to help close this coverage gap.
