Modern health coverage for your modern workforce
Choosing the right health benefits for your multi-generational workforce
For the first time in history, there are five generations in the U.S. workforce. In this article, you’ll learn how to best navigate their preferences and priorities in order to choose health care to fit their range of needs.
The Silent Generation
Although they only make up 2% of the workforce, they utilize care more than any other generation.
This generation may not have grown up with the internet, but they still rely on it for information about care.
Many Gen Xers are the chief decision makers for their own health care as well as their parents and children.
This generation loves having options when it comes to their health care and are more likely to use less traditional offerings such as telemedicine.
As the youngest generation in today’s workforce, Gen Z relies on their parents’ opinions when making decisions about their care.
Despite their differences, all five generations in the workforce appreciate accessible care at a good value.

Learn how Millennials will continue to change health care, and why offering innovative and inclusive benefits will give you an edge in a competitive job market.
With 44% belonging to a minority race or ethnic group, Millennials are the most diverse generation of all time.1

To deliver on this new expectation, some businesses are using third-party services, who offer individualized health insurance support. But the best member experience comes when these services collaborate with your health insurance carrier. Find out what kind of support is right for your company.
