Group Benefits for Healthcare Facilities

Now more than ever, busy inpatient care facilities like yours are taking a hard look at their costs while addressing complex needs. Like retaining a qualified staff of diverse workers. Reducing absenteeism. And boosting productivity and operational efficiency. How do you do it all? The Hartford offers a suite of insurance products—from group disability to life and accident—to help you reach your goals.

A clinical approach to claims

Employees can initiate claims by phone, eliminating paperwork. And when they do, they're assisted by an experienced nurse from start to finish. Nurses reach out to their physicians, ensuring that claims decisions are fair, based on accurate medical information.

Professional return-to-work assistance

At The Hartford, we believe in supporting people's abilities in any circumstance. Employees with disabilities are assisted by trained return-to-work coordinators to help them get back on payroll safely and, in many cases, weeks before their doctors predict.

Integrated leave management

Your facility can opt to have us manage all of your employee leaves—from workers' compensation to family medical leave and employer-paid leaves.

A choice of payment options

You can opt for employee-paid (voluntary) plans as well as traditional employer-paid arrangements.
