INARF Associate Member, Nonstop Administration & Insurance Services, Inc., shares how you can build equity into your employees’ health benefits.

They also can exacerbate inequities in healthcare by inhibiting the use of services - such as primary care - that benefit health and wellbeing.
Indiana employers that are truly committed to DEI as a workplace priority have an opportunity to reevaluate their employee health benefit plan and make adjustments to overcome these barriers by considering a first dollar coverage plan design.
