Over the last few years, healthcare has become a battleground in the United States. While some businesses have ramped up their benefits offerings when it comes to healthcare, others have tried to pare down hours so as not to qualify for the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
As the economy continues to recover, employees are sure to take note of which employers were “on their side” when things were at their most uncertain. If you want to attract and maintain the best talent in your industry, then it’s a good idea for you to pursue greater benefits.
There are many younger people in the workforce who take medication for issues such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They may be healthy in all other ways, but their productivity is greatly helped by medication.
At the other end of the spectrum, more and more people are working later into their lives. These folks may be vigorous and sharp, but they no doubt have several conditions that are best helped through medication. A larger and larger proportion of Americans require multiple medications.
No matter which age range your workforce skews toward, a pharmacy discount card is very appropriate. For different reasons, this is a benefit that will appeal to practically anyone in your enterprise:
-- Younger people may choose not to pay into a full-scale healthcare plan if they are currently healthy and do not have anyone else they wish to cover. However, if they fall ill or have some existing conditions, they can still benefit from a pharmacy card’s medication assistance.
-- Elders are more likely to opt for a robust healthcare plan, unless they are already covered under Medicare or another benefits plan. However, even a strong healthcare plan does not always, on its own, reduce the costs of medication. A pharmacy discount card helps.
A healthy workforce provides you with the backbone that you need to achieve your goals. If you are in an industry with a high-tech focus or other skilled components, it is best not to leave the fate of your business to turnover.
