How to Make Your Health Benefits Work for You

Some of the best things in life are free, including some medical plan perks offered by your employer. Taking advantage of the benefits provided by your employer can not only lead to a healthier lifestyle, but it can save you money and help you make some life-altering changes.

Here are just a few ways you can make sure your health benefits are working for you:

1. Find the Best Things

A little research into the medical plans that your employer offers can reveal some valuable perks. This could just be a free physical once per year, but if you’re not seriously considering your benefits you might miss out on other incentives. For example, FMCNA offers StatDoctors to all of its employees and their dependents at no cost at all. This service can connect employees with physicians in their area for on-demand treatment of most medical conditions that don’t require a visit to the emergency room, like minor illness, conditions, or check-ups.

2. Use Your Discounts!

In general, any health benefits that your employer offers will help you save money, but you need to make sure you’re doing your part. Companies like FMCNA are increasingly investing in the physical health of employees by offering discounts on fitness memberships and Weight Watchers to help keep healthy. Discounts may also extend to elective surgeries like LASIK, so be sure to check with your HR representatives for more information.

3. Ensure Mental and Emotional Happiness

Mental and emotional well-being can often go unnoticed in the pursuit of maintaining your physical health. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are a valuable resource available to employees at FMCNA that help deal with issues ranging from anxiety and stress to marital and family conflicts through confidential counseling services. Available at no cost to employees, EAPs are the perfect way to find the support to confront long-term personal struggles like quitting a smoking habit.

4. Be More Productive

If you’re utilizing some of these additional health benefits, chances are that you’re feeling healthier all around. This will lead to you being more productive and happier at work.

If you’re looking for an employer that is truly focused on helping its employees live healthier and smarter lives, see all the open opportunities at FMCNA today.
