Free Video Explains Health Insurance Terms like Coinsurance and Deductibles for Employees

Available to Employers to Assist Employees During Employee Benefits Open Enrollment Season

Press Release |

Flimp Communications, a leader in HR and employee benefits video communications, announced today it is offering its new “Five Key Health Insurance Terms Explained” animated video for free to employers to help educate employees during open enrollment season. The video is part of the company’s extensive educational HR and benefits video library available to employers. With multiple distribution options, the hosted HR videos can be sent by internal email, text message and embedded in intranets, benefits portals or other internal communications tools as an on-demand resource for employees.

Access the complimentary “Health Insurance Terms” video with distribution options here.

The Flimp video offering is in response to a recent PolicyGenius survey that showed only four percent of Americans is able to correctly define these common health insurance terms: coinsurance, copay, deductible and out-of-pocket maximums.  Flimp’s free health insurance terms video includes animated explanations of the four terms from the survey, plus premiums. These five terms are the foundation for employee understanding of available medical benefits plans.

Benefits enrollment education is in a period of transition. Drastic comprehension gaps have been revealed by the PolicyGenius and other surveys. In Aflac’s 2016 Open Enrollment Survey, 59% of respondents admitted there were aspects of their benefits they didn’t understand and 72% were looking for short, simple and stress-free ways to learn about those aspects to help them make decisions. The burden of providing benefits education, and explaining complex medical plan options, is falling on employers. Flimp Communications assists organizations in meaningful and cost-effective ways to engage and educate employees using digital communications.

“Having access to a library of educational videos allows companies to provide employees with the information they need to understand their benefits options, while lifting the burden of teaching these concepts from the shoulders of HR teams,” Wayne Wall, CEO of Flimp Communications, explained. “We also offer custom video content, benefits decision-support tools and HR communication solutions that drive more employee engagement and reduce overall benefits costs.”

Flimp’s animated HR video library consists of more than thirty videos available for license annually at $500 each.
