The Equity Problem You Didn’t Know You Had: The Health Benefits Crisis in the I/DD Workforce
Employee health benefits in America are in a sorry state of affairs, and the organizations that employ direct support professionals are, unfortunately, no exception to the rule. More than half of American workers were enrolled in high deductible health plans in 2022—plans so inadequate that half the people enrolled in them were forced to defer needed health care due to prohibitively high costs. These aren’t benefits, they are detriments: to your employees and their families, and by extension, to the I/DD community.
This isn’t only a recruitment and retention issue, it’s an equity issue—a subject of paramount importance, as anyone in the I/DD space knows. So join this conversation with Nonstop Administration & Insurance Services, Inc.; an employee health insurance advisor; and ANCOR member, TSE, Inc. Get ready for a much-needed wake up call, followed by some innovative solutions to provide your workforce the kind of health benefits they deserve.
