Approximately 90.1 percent of restaurant workers don’t have health insurance through employers; 89.6 percent don’t get paid sick days; and 66.7 percent report having worked while sick. With rising food and energy costs, restaurant owners’ margins are really sliced thin. But you want to do right by employees. And you know you’ll benefit by retaining good workers and helping them stay healthy and productive.
Now you can offer an affordable alternative to health insurance.
DISCOUNT PROGRAM ADDRESSES BASIC NEEDS
For $5 a month per employee, you can have a discount program that reduces the costs for employees, their spouses and dependents, in the three health care areas they most often request:
Physicians, services and supplies. Patients typically pay 10 percent to 50 percent less in a wide range of health care categories
Prescription drugs. Patients receive as much as 50 percent off on brand name and generic drugs, with an average savings of 28 percent.
Health help lines. Unlimited toll-free telephone access to a nurse or licensed clinician who can help with medical, stress, emotional and relationship issues, at no additional cost
ACCESS TO A WIDE NETWORK
Through UnitedHealth Allies®, employees can choose from more than 450,000 provider locations nationwide. They will receive discounts in many areas, including: vision, dental, alternative care (such as chiropractic), wellness (including fitness clubs, weight loss programs and vitamins), long-term care services (such as home health care), hearing, infertility treatment, medical care (from primary care doctors to lab services) and behavioral health (including addiction treatment).
PRESCRIPTION DRUG SAVINGS
The ScriptSave® Prescription Drug Savings Program gives employees immediate savings. They receive discounts on brand name and generic drugs at 55,000 participating pharmacies across the country covering everyone in the household, and there are no age or income restrictions.
