Your Monthly Health Benefits Newsletter

Welcome to our March Newsletter! Apologies for the late night send - it's been a busy month! At Reid Benefits we enjoy keeping our clients and partners 'in the loop' and informed. With healthcare continually evolving, we keep a pulse on what is changing and how this impacts you. 

If you only read one of my articles - make it this one. John Ruffalo recovered from a severe accident and went on to create Maverix - a large fund for investment in (private) growth companies; a market ignored by Canadian lenders.  Positively thrilling I tell you! How does this relate to Benefits? Well, disability coverage is essential  - it protects your finances while you recover from a physical injury. No sense in damaging your body and your bank account.  Know the limitations and conditions of your group disability coverage! Get in touch today and book a webinar!
Is your benefit plan with Manulife Vitality? Well if it is, you'll collect 400 points once you get the vaccine. With Insurance companies providing incentives for certain behaviors, the hope is that claims will decrease and we'll get to herd immunity faster. Curious about other Providers? Ask us. 
Well, my Newsletter wouldn't be complete without a bit of wisdom from one of the greatest Employment Lawyers - Howard Levitt. If you work in HR, this one's an essential read. 

Why Organizations keep making costly blunders

Here's my TLDR:
  • Employee allegations must be dealt with in a timely, sensitive and professional manner. 
  • The fallout from failing to conduct a proper investigation into a complaint can be severe
As the Employer, you must
  • Institute a mix of proactive and reactive measures
  • Ensure that someone in Human Resources is trained in investigations - this will allow such situations to be addressed quickly and properly

Small Business Feature of the Month - Apothecare Pharmacy
The trend in Drug Care is toward increasing specificity - medical treatments are being tailored according your genetic makeup.
