Do First Responders Understand Their Mental Health Benefits?

By Safe Call Now Admin Staff

The answer to that question is “probably not.”  About half of all employees don’t understand their benefits.  When you think about it, that’s not really all that’s surprising. Let’s call it like it is…  our healthcare system is overly complex.  Based on the Global Brand Simplicity Index, healthcare ranks last (yes, LAST) in simplicity across 25 different industries and the large healthcare insurance companies hold three of the bottom five spots.  Yikes!

This is why it’s so important to not only have a benefits communication strategy, but also an understandable one!  When we boil it down, employee engagement is the most critical part for employees to understand their benefits.  We need to help simplify everything for the employee.  We can simplify that for you at Safe Call Now.

And just to address the elephant in the room, we understand… getting engagement on healthcare topics and benefits can be incredibly challenging.  In fact, the top challenges with benefits communications are:

  • 80% of participants don’t open/read materials.
  • 49% of participants don’t understand materials.
  • 31% of participants don’t perceive value in their benefits.

It’s really an uphill battle. So, what can you do?  Contact Shannon Clairemont or Vanessa Stapleton below to better understand and verify your mental healthcare benefits.  Your life may depend upon it.
