What are voluntary plans?
Voluntary plans are 100% paid by the employee (though employers are able to contribute, too). Employees can choose which voluntary plans are best for their own situation. Some voluntary plans pay cash benefits directly to employees to cover living expenses, lost wages, copayments and deductibles. Other plans include disability insurance, life insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance, and other plans and services.
What are the benefits to employers?
With Aetna Voluntary Plans, employers can provide a more robust workplace benefits package to employees without affecting their bottom line. Employees pay up to 100% for voluntary plans, but get the benefit of a group rate through their employer.
Aetna Voluntary Plan services include valuable support for employers, such as worksite marketing and consulting services, as well as advanced technology tools.
All this comes from Aetna, a single carrier solution with over 150 years of experience.

Producers can provide their clients with a more robust workplace benefits package.
