In addition, the products' expanded flexibility allows employers to build a plan that the meets their unique benefits needs and it can be included on virtually any enrollment platform or benefits administration system.
"If there's one thing we know for certain, it's that healthcare is getting more expensive, and more and more costs are shifting to employees, so we're evolving our accident insurance to make it easier to cover more of those costs," said Rob Grubka, president, Voya Employee Benefits. "Our enhanced Compass Accident Insurance will focus people on healing and wellness, rather than finding extra cash or dipping into retirement savings for life's unexpected events."
Voya Employee Benefits' Compass insurance products offer "voluntary" or employee-selected coverage that is processed and administered similarly to traditional group insurance. With Compass Accident Insurance, employers may choose to fund the plan for their employees; offer it as an option employees can purchase through their workplace benefits; or create a combined option in which the employer pays a portion of the benefit and the employee can purchase additional coverage.
Voya's Employee Benefits business offers stop loss, group life, voluntary benefits and disability income insurance products to employers and their employees. The business has extensive experience in the design, implementation and administration of employee benefits plans, and it offers a full range of supplemental voluntary products that include critical illness, accident and hospital confinement indemnity insurance.
