As part of employee benefits, organizations often pay a percentage of employee healthcare costs making health insurance more affordable. Without a shared burden, individuals and families cannot always afford coverage. In these situations, people neglect their health or end up in impossible financial situations.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Sharing the cost of health insurance with employees helps maintain a healthy workforce. It also contributes to talent retention as employees are likely to move to other organizations when not offered the benefit.
For New Orleans
New Orleans is more socially and economically healthy when its citizens have health insurance.
