Limited Medical Plans for Prevailing Wage Workers
Nearly 45 million people lack health coverage in the United States. Of this, 8 out of 10 people who have no health coverage come from working families. People without health insurance tend to get sick more often and are likely to die sooner. Health insurance is an essential need for every American family. Our health is an asset that must be seriously taken care of.
As a contractor, your prevailing wage employees’ state of health should be an important matter to you. The state of health of your workers will determine their willingness to work and the quality of their output. A sickly employee will incur absences frequently, and will thus affect the output of the group. Offering your employees health insurance and other fringe benefits also gives your company a recruiting and retention advantage.
A Limited Benefit Medical Plan is not a comprehensive major medical plan, and is not intended to replace one. It is a plan that provides your employees with basic insurance coverage, capped at specific amounts for specific services. These kind of plans offer a wide variety of options designed for full-time workers, part-time workers, and prevailing wage contractors as well.
