Health Net of Oregon Helps Small Businesses Weather the Tough Economy


Unique Program Offers Affordability and Choice

TIGARD, Ore.- Health Net Health Plan of Oregon, Inc. is introducing an innovative program to help small-business owners in Oregon provide their employees with the ultimate in choice and flexibility in their health insurance coverage.

“Typically, small-business owners offer their employees one health plan for all employees and pay a set premium each month,” said Kevin Meier, director of Small Group Sales at Health Net of Oregon. With Enhanced Choice, small-business owners can affordably make more than two dozen health plans – all the plans, or any combination of the plans – available to their employees.

Helping Employers During the Down Economy

Health Net listened to the needs of insurance agents and employers who wanted a simple solution to stretch their premium dollars during the down economy, Meier said. And agents and employers also wanted personalized, easy-to-use plans built with individual members’ needs in mind.

With Enhanced Choice, employers can pay a fixed dollar amount within their budget and allow their employees the freedom to increase their contribution in order to get the health plans they truly want and need. For example, some employees may want a plan that is rich in benefits, while some may only want coverage for catastrophic conditions, and others may prefer something in the middle.

“This is a creative solution that puts small-business owners in the driver’s seat and makes it easy for them to provide their employees with health insurance,” said Meier.

Health insurance agents and employers wanting more details about Enhanced Choice may contact Health Net at 888-802-7001.
