As the New Year approaches we wanted to remind you about an excellent new benefit we’re now offering our Travelers. About a month ago Medical Solutions announced a HUGE change to our Traveler medical insurance rates. Rates have been lowered to the degree that a basic, single policy costs just $10 per week! While usually changes to insurance and other benefits could affect your pay package, this change is being completely covered by Medical Solutions.
So why the big change? There are several factors that lead to this decision and amazing savings for Medical Solutions Travelers.
- To nutshell all of this: You asked, we listened. The number one reason for this change is that our Travelers spoke loud and clear that our insurance offerings were one area where we could improve our service. We always strive to be the best possible company for our Travelers and this change was necessary to continue to achieve that.
- Because of our old rates, we had pretty low participation in our insurance plan. As a result of that, rates continued to rise in a bit of a vicious cycle. We decided to step in and cover hundreds of dollars more towards premiums for every single Traveler on our plan in hopes that participation will increase and rates will eventually lower for everyone.
- We want you covered. As a company that sincerely cares about its Travelers, we didn’t want to see anyone going without coverage because it was too expensive.
- In the face of a lot of uncertainty in the world of medical insurance, including a nationwide reform that is in flux, Medical Solutions wanted our Travelers to be secure and not have to worry about what’s around the corner.
With this serious change in our insurance offerings we hope that we have provided Travelers with coverage and the peace of mind that they and their families’ health are totally taken care of.
