Nationwide Better Health has enhanced its workplace benefits offering by adding group short-term and long-term disability plans with flexible features and benefit levels.
The company said that the workplace benefits portfolio, which also include group term life insurance, group dental plans, medical stop loss insurance, business travel accident and accident/hospital Ca$hBack plans, allow employers to provide benefits that help safeguard their employees’ physical and fiscal health.
According to Nationwide, the long-term disability plans, which are underwritten by Nationwide Life Insurance Company, offer features and services that make it easier for employees to return-to-work while enhancing their overall health and well-being.
In addition, the plan also offers rehabilitation and return to work incentives such as social security coordination assistance and workplace modification, along with optional benefits and services to enhance the base plan such as 401(k) or pension plan contribution, spousal disability coverage, or extended or dependent care benefits.
Melissa Gutierrez, vice president of Nationwide Better Health, said: “Without regular income, most people aren’t prepared to cover their daily living expenses, let alone ongoing financial obligations if a disability would prevent them from working. Our group disability plans can help employers provide peace of mind and long-term well-being for their employees and their families.”
