LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--While the fate of the nation’s healthcare system remains uncertain, Redirect Health has launched a healthcare plan that meets the needs of Nevada’s hospitality, tourism and construction businesses.
Redirect Health, a national healthcare company based in Scottsdale, Ariz., is now offering its flagship product, EverydayCARE, to Nevada companies with seasonal and low-wage workforces. The health plan utilizes a self-insurance model to provide employers and their staff with affordable, high-quality health benefits at a low monthly rate, including unlimited access to routine preventative healthcare.
“EverydayCARE is an ideal solution for casinos, hotels, restaurants, construction companies and other businesses with a fluctuating workforce or whose employees earn $15 or less. It’s one of the only solutions designed for workers who haven’t traditionally received quality health benefits,” said Mike Bechtol, Director of Membership at Redirect Health.
It’s an important consideration in states like Nevada, which ranks near the bottom of the country in insured children and adults.
“Our clients in other markets have gained a lasting advantage by providing benefits to lower-wage earners,” added Bechtol. “From a bottom-line perspective, the cost of providing EverydayCARE is dramatically lower than the cost of employee turnover.”
With turnover in the hospitality sector topping 70 percent in 2016, businesses’ costs to recruit and train new employees are formidable. Indeed, the Center for American Progress found that the cost to replace an employee earning just $10 an hour exceeds $3,000.
EverydayCARE, offered in 40 states and continuing to expand nationwide, is available for $105 a month, per employee, with no deductible or copays. Employers may elect to cover the full cost or split the payment with employees. The product offers unlimited primary, injury and chiropractic care. It also includes labs and immunizations, along with Redirect Health’s care coordination support services.
