Does ROI Matter in Health Insurance?

Ok, time for some real talk. Over the last couple of years there’s been a lot of analysis, alterations and a reframing of the way that we look at healthcare from the employer perspective. Obamacare has forced us to step back and ask ourselves what level of benefits we should really be offering to employees. Do we go for the “Full Monty” and offer amazing benefits with the hopes that we can attract great people? Or do we pursue a more barebones approach and offer what Obamacare requires us to offer? What I’m getting at is this: What do we expect to get back from our investment? What is the “ROI” for offering benefits? And Most importantly, do we need ROI to justify having health insurance?
