Providing Mental Health & Voluntary Benefits for Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment Voluntary and Mental Health Benefits

At LUXA, we understand the importance of empowering CEOs and business owners to make choices during Open Enrollment 2022 that benefit their employees and organizations as a whole. One important aspect of health care that we must discuss is that of mental health support and voluntary benefits. 

As the health care priorities of individuals in the workforce continue to change, your health care benefits must continue to evolve with these needs. Following the mental strain that many individuals suffering due to COVID, it is important to offer benefits for not only physical health but mental health as well. 

Employees at every level from leadership to the newest hires benefit from mental health support, telehealth opportunities, and voluntary benefits for things such as short-term, long-term, and life insurance. 

Take time to consider all of the reasons why you have good employees who are loyal and hardworking as you make decisions regarding benefits. It will be worth your time spent to retain your staff rather than investing more budget to find new ones.

Understanding the Need for Mental Health Support

Once a topic that was considered taboo, individuals in all sectors of the workforce are becoming more open about the need for mental health support. This is becoming increasingly evident on the heels of the COVID pandemic. 

From the isolation of working from home to depression and anxiety surrounding job uncertainties, many employees are suffering. As a CEO or business owner, you must acknowledge the growing need for mental health support. However, it is also important that you provide a means for your employees to access these resources during Open Enrollment 2022.

How Telehealth Opportunities Benefit Your Workforce

One aspect of health care that has become more popular over the past few years is that of telehealth. Offering health care benefits that support telehealth opportunities not only benefits your employees but can also positively impact productivity!

It is important to value and support the physical and mental health needs of your employees. However, appointments with health care providers often occur in the middle of the workday. 

Offering coverage for telehealth ensures you are providing your employees with the opportunity to access vital health care services. However, it also minimizes the time spent traveling to and from these appointments, improving your productivity.

During Open Enrollment 2022, it is wise to seek a health care benefits package that offers coverage for telehealth opportunities. In doing so, make sure you have an immediate plan in place with your IT department to handle the technical aspects of making it easy for front office staff to navigate software and equipment. Avoid, at all costs, any frustration that can arise with technology. 

Offering Voluntary Benefits During Open Enrollment 2022

One size does not fit all when it comes to health care. Some of your employees may be satisfied with minimal coverage while others prefer more comprehensive coverage. The best way to handle this situation is to offer voluntary benefits during Open Enrollment 2022. 

You can offer your employees the opportunity to purchase benefits in addition to what is being offered by your company. Employees will feel valued when they have the ability to choose additional health care protections to best suit their needs. 

It is easy for employees who are satisfied with their coverage options during Open Enrollment 2022 to decline additional benefits. However, employees who feel that they need more comprehensive protection can easily enroll in supplemental health care coverage.
