This Month's Topic: HR/Compliance

Whether your company has 5 or 500 employees, it's important to conduct a regular review of your HR and benefits-related notices, records and procedures to ensure compliance with the law and prevent potential liabilities and employee lawsuits. This guide features key steps for evaluating your management practices to help keep your company HR compliant.
If you find yourself out of compliance and are looking for a way to get things squared away and protect your practice, look no further than FocusHRO’s “HR Services.”  Our subscription-based model is designed to work with you and bring you up to date on all things included in the checklist, as well as a live support for your HR questions and concerns. Discounts for the service are applied to Practice Members.

In the ever-changing landscape of employer sponsored group health insurance, there has been a significant increase in the number of small to mid-sized companies taking advantage of level self-funded insurance plans, and taking the control back over their healthcare costs. The problem is, not enough people are talking about it. We are.
Level Self-Funding is a cost effective health plan funding solution that allows companies to pay a predictable, fixed cost, with a built in stop-loss insurance. There are several advantages to the plan, specifically a lower monthly cost, the potential for a return of premiums, and the ability to charge at a “tiered rate” – that is, employee, employee/spouse, employee/child, and family. Prior to the passage of the ACA, this tiered rating model helped business owners simplify accounting, as the employee cost is the same for everyone, regardless of their age - no more age-banding hassle.

At FocusHRO, we discuss this option with every practice with whom we meet, explain the plan in full detail, and help you determine if is a good fit. To learn more or to get a quote, please follow the link below to set up a meeting.
