About this Course

A plan document can be overwhelming for both employers and employees. It is typically a lengthy document filled with legal references, medical terms, and other intimidating phrases, all of which impact the bottom line of the employer and the pocketbook of the employees. By increasing awareness of the coverage and terms under your health plan, you reduce overall costs through employees who are better and healthier consumers of their health care.

In this course, we will be discussing the basics of creating a health plan document that helps your employees understand the health coverage offered by your benefit plan.
