Personal attention ensures employees know their available health care options
Bukaty Companies recently launched a new Life Transitions service (www.lifetransitions.co) to help employees with insurance needs that extend beyond the employer group benefit package. Whether an employee needs individual coverage for a dependent aging off the employer plan, requires short-term coverage during a waiting period or wants to explore Medicare coverage options, help is available from our team of licensed, certified enrollers.
“We always provide assistance when our clients ask for help with an individual employee need,” said Mike Bukaty, chairman and CEO of Bukaty Companies. “Our Life Transitions service allows us to staff and train a team of licensed enrollers who are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday thru Friday. They are specialists in individual and senior coverage and can help individuals evaluate their coverage options.”
Medicare - Becoming Medicare eligible raises several important questions. Our enrollment specialists are AHIP and product certified and can assist with Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplements and Part D coverage.
Dependent coverage - The ACA requires health plans provide dependent coverage up to age 26. We can assist dependents turning 26 to find the best plan to fit their needs.
Cobra alternatives - COBRA-eligible individuals can often secure individual coverage that is less expensive than the group COBRA rate.
Short term - New hires in their waiting period often are without coverage for 60 to 90 days. Short-term coverage is generally an affordable option for this short-term period that provides valuable peace of mind.
