Sponsored by United Agencies Insurance

Please Join Us for Another Great Webinar!  Wednesday, April 15, 2020  at 11:00am to 12:00 Noon (PDT)

Whether your employees are being directly affected by COVID-19, having regular care interrupted, or are simply stressed out - they are all being impacted by the pandemic. It’s important that you know the resources available to your most important asset - your employees - so they feel supported during this crazy time.

The healthcare system is radically adapting to the changing environment, and the good news is health insurance carriers have been stepping up to address these challenges. So please join us for a detailed discussion on how each carrier is responding and how you can use this to help your staff:

  • Increasing coverage on COVID-19 related care.
  • Creating Special Open Enrollment Periods for employees/dependents that need insurance.
  • Incentivizing Virtual Doctor Visits for routine medical care.
  • Medications: Flexibility on refills and prior authorizations.
  • Addressing Mental Health concerns by extending EAP programs.
  • Flexibility on downgrading health insurance plans to reduce costs.
  • Longer grace periods on premium payments.
