As of Monday, March 23, 2020, the Ohio Governor issued a mandatory “stay at home” order. It comes on the heels of previous business closures because of social distancing guidelines. Like in many states, the order will continue until the beginning of April. It’s all in hopes of stopping the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
But for many businesses it’s already causing severe financial pain.
Remember, ClaimLinx’s primary concern is savings clients money on health insurance. We know how important health coverage is, especially at a time like this. Our consultants are ready to talk you through how to cut employers’ health insurance costs. We know it’s more important now than ever.
Please contact email@example.com or call (513) 985-4465 to set up a meeting if you are considering laying off employees or cutting their hours.
Changes to Claimlinx’s Service
The mandatory “stay at home” order in Ohio, where Claimlinx’s main office is located, began on Monday, March 23 and will continue until April 6. Claimlinx employees are able to continue working remotely, but we are making some adjustments to our mailing services.
Because we are an Insurance Institution, we are considered an essential business, as outlined in the order. So we will still have some employees going to our office to maintain services. But we are limiting this as much as possible. For that reason, we do anticipate some delays in mailing.
We expect this primarily to impact mailing explanations of benefits (EOBs) and member ID cards. Temporarily, we will be sending all member ID cards digitally first and sending a hard copy later. Members can always contact firstname.lastname@example.org if they need a copy of an EOB.
Contact us before cutting employees’ hours
Already we have had clients who are considering placing employees on furlough or moving them to part time. Our consultants already have strategies for how to use this time to cut costs while still providing benefits.
We are here to help companies get through this trying time. Many employers are worried about how long the pause in the economy will last and what affect it will have on their bottom line. We know, too, they are worried about their workers.
Contact email@example.com or call (513) 985-4465 to set up a meeting. Our consultants will go over your immediate options and any other long-term planning that may be needed.
Some employers may be able to take advantage of already existing rules on coverage to save on insurance premiums in the coming months. Some employers may need to stop providing insurance for any employees who are laid off. We would like to be there to offer our services to help these people navigate the marketplace so they don’t experience any lapses in coverage.
ClaimLinx is here for all of its clients, especially when trying to cut costs because of financial strains.
