There’s never been a better time to offer healthcare benefits
Now more than ever before, having access to affordable and dependable healthcare is critical. That’s why we launched the PSIvet Healthcare Initiative program to help our members provide healthcare options to their employees.
As a trusted advocate for our independent veterinary practices and their employees, PSIvet knows that healthcare benefits are top of mind for veterinary professionals and veterinary practices, especially when it comes to recruiting and retaining valuable employees.
The PSIvet Healthcare Initiative offers our members and their employees affordable healthcare options with plans that meet the needs of everyone in the practice!
“The more benefits that you can offer as a business, I think it does help across the board retain your employees,” says Shannon Cribb, Certified Veterinary Technician and Practice Manager at Coastal Veterinary Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida.
“Employees like to know they’re appreciated and that their employer cares about them.”
Getting over the biggest hurdle – cost
Affording healthcare is a big challenge in most veterinary practices and even if a practice offers coverage – many employees are not able to afford it.
“Costs are the number one concern,” says Meredith Crew, Receptionist at Coastal Veterinary Hospital. “To be able to see it and right away say I can afford that – that’s ideal. I never thought I could afford insurance working as a receptionist.”
PSIvet wants to make it easier for our members to provide an affordable alternative to costly major medical healthcare plans. Our plans are about one-quarter of the cost of traditional health insurance and include discounts on medical, dental, vision, lab and testing and even some gym memberships.
“It’s very exciting,” says Shannon, “whatever we can do to help our employees – we want to keep our people and we want them to be able to stay healthy and be able to take care of themselves.”
“This sounds like something that opens up the door for people to get the help they need.”
Our new virtual basic plan means you get care when and where you need it
PSIvet recently expanded its offerings by launching the Virtual Basic healthcare plan that offers telephonic and video capabilities for routine medical visits. Virtual healthcare is healthcare delivered when you want it without having to leave your house.
Providing a health plan to employees is no longer out of reach for independent veterinary practices. We’re making it possible for our members to provide robust and affordable healthcare plans that keep their employees healthy and happy and also help their businesses thrive.
