The issue of access to healthcare is a growing concern as traditional primary care offices continue to face increasing demands. A continuing nationwide shortage and maldistribution of primary care physicians have resulted in longer wait times for patients to get in to see their doctors while doctors face the challenges of accommodating an increased demand from an aging population.
Unfortunately, these realities negatively affect employers as they are often forced to make the difficult decision to reduce the scope of their healthcare offerings. The choice to offer only high-deductible health plans can affect employee retention and the ability to recruit top talent, while decreasing employee satisfaction and morale, leading to lower productivity and higher rates of absenteeism.
Employees are burdened with the cost of higher healthcare expenses in the form of higher deductibles and higher co-payments to maintain a health insurance plan that offers limited benefits. Many employees may choose to pay the Affordable Healthcare Act penalty, opting out of healthcare coverage and leaving them uninsured. And as paid company sick time off is reduced or rolled into general personal-time-off, more employees will make the choice to come into work sick and potentially expose their colleagues to illnesses.
