The great thing about voluntary benefits is that no employer contribution is required. Employees choose from the available voluntary benefits and pay premiums in a pretax environment through their employer. The most-purchased voluntary plans include medical, dental and vision insurance, according to an article published by BenefitsPro.
With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (health care reform) in 2014, employers expect that voluntary insurance plans will remain popular benefit solutions. Employers can use voluntary plans to sweeten employee benefit programs by offering connections to a variety of quality insurance plans with little or no cost to the company. And employees appreciate the opportunity to purchase extra insurance to fill in gaps in benefit coverage.
