With a long list of clients and a steady stream of phone calls, group health insurance may not be your top priority as the owner of a veterinary practice. But, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, access to health care and good health insurance coverage is more important now than ever.
With Vetinsure group health, you can protect your team in the onset of any illness or the event of an unexpected injury without emptying your pocket of money you need to run your business. Know your options and get the coverage you need.
Depending on where your practice is located, you may not be legally required to offer health insurance if your practice or clinic consists of fewer than 50 employees. Even so, there are several benefits of starting a group health cooperative policy that you may not realize.
Offering health insurance can help raise morale among your employees and make it easier to hire and retain good employees. Several studies indicate that many employees would rather have good health benefits from their job instead of a pay raise, so by getting group health insurance, you may help to boost your team’s outlook and productivity.
On top of this, you also have the obvious benefit of having a healthier team. While group health will incur a regular expense, absent employees may cost you more in lost productivity.
You also could pay less in taxes with breaks you receive for providing health insurance for a business of fewer than 50 employees. You may even see tax breaks that offset the cost of your plan, minimizing overhead for your clinic.
The exact parameters of your policy will vary depending on your region and the size of your business. With all of the benefits mentioned previously, we understand that for many who do not offer group health insurance, the primary reason is the cost.
As a business owner, you likely understand the importance of knowing when to invest and what to invest in. By starting a group health insurance policy, you are investing in your employees and expressing the value of their well-being to you and the veterinary practice overall.
Showing that you value your employees has significant impacts. We urge owners of veterinary clinics to consider all the work that your employees do on a daily basis.
People go to your veterinary office to receive quality health care for their beloved pets – quality health care that your employees help you provide. By investing in group health insurance, you invest in your staff’s careers as they keep your clients’ phone calls answered and their pets taken care of.
We recognize that group health insurance is not a one-size-fits-all type of purchase. At Vetinsure, we understand that each veterinary practice has a set of unique qualities and characteristics essential to the budgeting and decision-making process when choosing insurance for veterinarians.
