As part of our monthly Wellbeing Webinar Series, we featured our very own Senior Client Service Manager, Ashley Lucchesi, to discuss April’s topic, “Getting the Most Out of Your Health Benefits Package.”

During the conversation, we learned about what a standard health benefits package looks like, how to maximize the programs offered to you, how to become a smart health and benefits consumer, and so much more.

Here are a few key takeaways from the webinar:

  • It is important to keep in mind the “who, when, what, and how” when thinking about your health benefits and how each wellbeing pillar can be vital in your decision making and enrollment eligibility.
  • Understanding common medical and pharmacy insurance terms is important and helpful in understanding your total benefits offering. Along with different medical, dental, and vision plans and the corresponding HSA and FSA options that accompany those plans. Along with how to utilize and maximize these options.
  • Wellbeing and Perks is another key part of one’s health benefits. Understanding the different areas that your company might offer support in these areas is valuable and useful. Things like carrier programs, EAPs, community resources and so much more to support your physical, emotional, family, and financial wellbeing.
