As needed, we will actively manage employee enrollment meetings to present the benefit offerings and answer questions.
Educating Employees about the Affordable Care Act
There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and what it means not only to your company, but also to your employees. With all the information out in the mainstream media, many employees are confused and concerned about how the Act will impact their insurance costs and coverage options. At MMA, we offer turnkey communication resources and consulting services designed specifically to help your employees make sense of the ACA, understand their coverage options and prepare for change.
Communication is Key
Regardless of what stage your company is in with respect to the "pay or play" mandate, now is the time to implement a robust, integrated employee communications strategy. A well-designed campaign can make it easy for you to bring employees up to speed on the new legislation and what it means for them.
- Helping employees make sense of what they're reading and seeing in the mainstream press
- Minimizing the calls and inquiries about the ACA to your HR team
- Ensuring consistency of messaging
A comprehensive communications strategy can not only help your employees understand what is happening today, but lays the foundation for more in-depth communications as health care reform evolves.
