Group Health Plans
Coldbrook Insurance Group has what you need for group health plans. We offer a variety of flexible plans at affordable rates so that both employers and employees are happy with the coverage options. Our plans include HMO, PPO, POS, HSA, and HRA coverage options.
Point of Service
In the Point of Service (POS) plan, members are required to choose a primary care physician from within the preferred network, much like with an HMO plan. This primary caregiver then becomes the member’s “Point of Service.” The primary care physician can write referrals to members outside of the organization if they so desire. Patients can also choose to go outside of the organization, but this will result in lessened benefits from the member’s health insurance organization.
Health Maintenance Organization
In Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), a specific network of providers is designated for members. This allows the HMO to keep the costs to a minimum by providing discounted rates to members. Members are required to be treated by a doctor that is included in the network of providers as their primary caregiver. In an HMO, the primary care providers keep complete medical records of their patients. They also look at prescriptions written by all doctors that the patient visits to make sure that none of the medications prescribed could become a problem.
Preferred Provider Organization
The advantage to Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs) is their superior flexibility in choosing a provider. However, this comes at the cost of higher monthly premiums for members. A PPO also has a preferred network of medical providers to allow members to receive medical services at discounted rates. The primary difference between an HMO and a PPO is that a PPO will allow members to seek medical care outside of its preferred network of providers.
Health Savings Account
Health Savings Accounts, or HSAs, provide a good alternative to conventional health insurance. One of the primary benefits of this type of insurance plan is that the HSA gives your employees more control over how their health insurance money is spent. By law, an HSA must be offered in conjunction with a qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). As indicated by the name, any HDHP has a higher deductible than other forms of health insurance, but the benefit is that the monthly premium is lower. Using the HSA in conjunction with the HDHP allows members to pull from their HSA first when covering the deductibles, which in turn has the effect of them paying less out of pocket. Additionally, if employees fail to use funds in their HSA, they are carried over to the subsequent years for an unlimited duration.
Health Reimbursement Arrangement
Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs), also called Health Reimbursement Arrangements, are similar to Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). The primary difference is that in an HRA, the employer is required to contribute all funds while an HSA can receive funds from the employer or employees. There is no minimum or maximum requirement for employer contributions to an HRA, so employers have complete control over spending limits and the types of medical expenses reimbursed. An HRA will also be used in conjunction with an HDHP, saving the employer large, up-front, premium expenses.
