One benefit plan DOES NOT fit all employees' healthcare needs
In a Defined Contribution Benefit Plan…
EMPLOYERS CHOOSE the amount of money to allocate towards beneﬁts. It may be a different amount for coverage level(s) (Single, Family, etc.) and the amount does not need to change annually.
EMPLOYEES CHOOSE the beneﬁt program that best ﬁts their needs and their ability to afford the premiums for that beneﬁt plan choice. The amount of premium for coverage, which is more than the employer contribution, is withheld from employee compensation.
Defined Contribution Healthcare
For years, employers have provided benefits for employees and planned those benefits to meet the needs of those employees and their families. The challenge for employers is that healthcare has become much more specialized and variable while benefit programs have adhered to a more “one-size-fits-all” model. Due to the evolving benefit needs of employees and their families, benefit choices must be available for employees to choose from to fit their individual needs.
