USNow Introduces AccessMD

USNow Introduces AccessMD

A Solution to Help Employers Attract and Maintain a Talented Workforce

Plano, TX (PRWEB) November 9, 2008

USNow LP (www. usnow. com), rolls out a new employee retention strategy and rebranded limited medical plan, AccessMD. This phased-in benefit approach is ideal for businesses looking for ways to stabilize insurance premiums, reduce employee turnover costs, attract and retain employees.

AccessMD offers a solution to the escalating costs in health insurance. Companies can now offer healthcare benefits to their new hires, hourly, part-time, contract and seasonal workers and those who cannot afford the company sponsored health plan. USNow shows companies how to significantly reduce employee turnover costs, and apply this savings toward insurance premiums.

Most associates have to wait 30, 60 or 90 days before they are eligible for medical benefits. However AccessMD offers an Introduction Plan, that's specifically designed for workers the first day they are hired. Businesses are using this Introduction Plan as a way to recruit and retain employees. It's providing immediate benefits to their employees by reducing medical expenses and lost wages.

There's no hidden secret, health insurance is a valuable benefit. In fact, 85% of workers with health insurance said they would be willing to forego a 10% raise to keep their medical insurance, according to the Center of Retirement Research at Boston College.

So for businesses having to make tough decisions as insurance premiums continue to rise, increase deductibles and co-pays, pass on the extra expense to employees or pay premiums only for the management or administrative staff, they now have another option.
