Preparing Now for Open Enrollment 2022

Talk to LUXA about OPEN ENROLLMENT

At LUXA, we want to educate and empower CEOs and business owners to make wise choices when it comes to Open Enrollment 2022 – choosing health care options that benefit both their employees as well as their budget.

Health care is one of the greatest expenses of any small to mid-sized business. Health care is one of the most important incentives you can offer your employees. However, it is also one that requires great thought. Unfortunately, the effects of inflation are incredibly apparent in health care. As of this year, average inflation for renewal of health insurance has increased 7.66%. 

Take a step back and consider everything your organization has experienced over the last 2 years. Consider the hardship on families and use that reality to help guide your cost-sharing decisions during Open Enrollment 2022.” 

Brian Martin, Vice President of Human Resources, LUXA Enterprises

Understanding Inflation in Health Care Costs

So, why so much inflation in the world of health care? As with many other things in our world today, much of this dramatic inflation is a direct result of the COVID pandemic. With so much uncertainty, many Americans put off surgical procedures and other medical care during the height of the pandemic. 

To make matters worse, hospitals were not allowing important surgical procedures and routine exams to take place. This was largely due to a shortage of nursing staff and the increased cost of hospital supplies. Unfortunately, we are now seeing the effect of this as individuals are catching up on surgical procedures, routine exams, and other appointments that should’ve been taken care of last year. 

Health care spending dropped in 2020. However, we can expect to see a dramatic increase in the coming years as Americans seek this deferred medical care and deal with the effects of serious illnesses that were missed in their early stages due to the lack of routine exams.

Distinguish Yourself As An Employer of Choice

Now, more than ever before, individuals are realizing the importance of health care benefits. The labor market is much more competitive after COVID. If employers are more generous in their health care offerings, they’ll experience better retention of skilled employees! As a business owner or CEO, it is important to consider this as you prepare for Open Enrollment 2022. 

Distinguishing yourself as an employer of choice by offering great health care benefits will be well worth the added expense in the long run.

Strongly Consider Cost-Sharing Options

As you prepare for Open Enrollment 2022, take some time to strongly consider how much cost-sharing you will pass on or not pass on to employees. Employees have experienced the pandemic fallout, been furloughed from jobs, and suffered unemployment. These hardships make them sensitive and fragile. Providing them with some TLC in the job market in the form of quality health care benefits will incentivize them to perform for your company or organization.
