About This Course:
Many employers are facing significant health plan cost increases again this year, even after taking cost-management initiatives into account. Some are changing their approach to spousal coverage in an effort to manage costs.

This webinar will discuss health plan spousal surcharges and spousal carve-outs and the differences between them.

The material will review the pros and cons of each approach, address potential legal issues, and identify the health plan features, cost-sharing structures, and population demographics of plans that realize cost savings with a spousal surcharge or carve-out.
