Top PEO Broker Asks ... What Healthcare System? Can We Fix It?

As one of the nation’s leading employee management consultants, we help small business owners and HR managers solve many of the most challenging issues facing employers today. Most of America’s CEO’s and CFO’s agree that obtaining affordable health insurance continues to be a complex and time consuming responsibility that directly touches each one of their employees. Very often, the quality of an employer’s benefits program is key to a company’s ability to attract and retain a happy, healthy, loyal and productive workforce.

Everyday our clients ask for advice and opinions about their health insurance options. Many have concerns about the future of America’s health care system once “Health Care Reform” is fully implemented. I could explain the huge savings a cohesive system would produce, the improvements in the delivery of care, outcomes, and longevity. Just consider the reduction in adverse reactions, paperwork and stress one could expect from a responsive, simple, and transparent system. Think of all the time, energy and resources each citizen would save.

It often amazes me how we routinely accept and allow the insanity of our current system to continue. I came across a very funny video which identifies some obvious improvements for creating a consumer friendly and proactive healthcare system.

What if airlines in United States worked under the same conditions established by health insurers, medical providers, hospitals, and practice management gurus?

Just imagine. How would you fix our broken healthcare system?

We welcome your comments on how you would cure a healthcare system on life support.

How Do I Find The Best PEO Brokers?

A Guide to Outsourced HR and Professional Employer Consultants

Have you ever tried to find unbiased and accurate information about employee leasing companies or professional employer organizations? It’s not easy. Look up PEO Broker or PEO Consultant in the “Yellow Pages” (does anyone still use the yellow pages). In most areas of the country, you won’t find the category, no less the listing for a PEO professional who can provide you with reliable information, and answers to your questions about employee leasing or professional employer organizations.

Whenever I attend a networking event or business card exchange, I find when being introduced to another business  executive that the conversation leads into the million dollar question “What do you do”?  I could go into a long dissertation about being an outsourced human resource consultant, outlining the payroll, group health insurance, workers compensation, HR compliance and 30+ other areas of services, but very often I will say “I’m a PEO Broker”. Usually, I’m asked again “What do you do?” only with more emphasis the second time.

Sad to say, but after 25 years, most small and midsize business owners and HR professionals are not familiar with the term PEO.   NAPEO, the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations, and PACE, Professional Administrative Co-Employers are two associations that represent members of the industry. Unfortunately, both organizations have done less than a stellar job of creating an industry “Brand”, or getting a uniform message across to the small business community. What escapes me is! How does an industry comprised of corporate power houses like ADP Totalsource, Administaff, Oasis Outsourcing, and TriNet HR, fail to get the word out.

Watch this commercial from Administaff, one of America’s largest professional employer organizations It is a 30 second spot featuring golf great Arnold Palmer speaking about the benefits of being an Administaff client. The ad is aptly named “Legend”.

 Can you answer who Administaff is, what they do, and how they do it? 

Unbiased HR Outsourcing and PEO Advice At Your Fingertips

While it may be challenging to find unbiased advice about HR outsourcing companies, it is not impossible. Thanks to technology, the internet, and social media, getting the facts about PEOs and  employee leasing companies has gotten much easier. Business and social media directories like Biz Link, Business.com, and LinkedIn, and search engines like Bing, Google, and Yahoo allow business owners and executives to search for PEO Brokers and PEO Consultants by typing a few keywords.

Ad man, Fred Barnard said a picture is worth ten thousand words. Today, You Tube provides millions of viewers with information on almost every topic imaginable, including HR outsourcing and professional employer organizations. Almost everyday we are contacted by busy executives who are looking for information about PEOs and facts on the HRO industry.

Welcome to Employers Rx. How can we help you today?

What Is A Small Business Health Insurance Benefits Exchange?

Business Owners Have Questions About Health Insurance Exchanges

Everyday I am asked by CFO’s, HR specialists, insurance brokers, business owners and executives about the future of group health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

What are the facts about health insurance reform? How will it affect my current group health plan? When do the changes go into effect? What is a health insurance exchange? Can my small business join the health insurance exchange?

How is it that so many questions remain? It’s been six months since the bill has been passed, and almost two years since the health care reform debate began in Congress. Maybe the problem is that so many small business owners are getting misinformation from usually reliable sources.

Here is a short video produced by the National Federation of Independent Businesses featuring Dr. Robert Graboyes, Senior Policy Adviser for the NFIB who discusses the benefits of comparative shopping for health insurance by forming purchasing exchanges. Admitting  that under our current health insurance system, the rising costs are destroying small  and mid sized companies across America.

Dr. Graboyes proposes how properly designed healthcare insurance exchanges can be a possible solution for small business owners.  He  explains how online healthcare exchanges can lower employee benefits costs by creating competitive insurance marketplaces. His solution calls for a website similar to Orbitz or Travelocity that will “unleash competition”,  making it easy for business owners and their employees to easily compare options and select coverage that is right for them.

One thing I find a little puzzling. If Dr. Graboyes system is designed to make the entire process user friendly, easy to understand, and simple to use. Then why would anyone  want to add the cost of using an insurance agent or need to? When I book a cruise, a flight or  hotel online at Priceline, I don’t usually call my travel agent first.

What A Difference A Year Makes

It’s amazing what can happen in just one year. Many parts of the Affordable Care Act remain to be finalized. There is however, a clear framework and timeline in place, that will finally overhaul our broken, inefficient and unfair health insurance system. Still, some politicians are pushing for a total repeal of the bill. I believe that once business owners, parents and seniors begin to understand all the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, and how it benefits them, then any attempt to repeal healthcare reform will be a complete waste of time, energy, money (lots of it) and resources.
