COVID-19 Financial Impact Report

Understand COVID-19’s probable impact on your future benefit plan costs

Estimate the impact of the coronavirus on future cash flow

As employers and their employees turn their focus toward returning to the workplace, they’re also concerned about the future impact of COVID-19 on their plan costs and company bottom lines. In fact, as we talk to customers about challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the greatest fear is of the unknown, as in, “How much is the going to cost my organization and can we afford it?”

We can tell you. The first step is estimating future impact on your cash flow.

Apex Benefits is excited to offer employers a COVID-19 Financial Impact Report. Using a proprietary impact analysis methodology, our in-house actuaries and clinical analysts utilize employer-specific data to model several different impact scenarios — from best to worst case — on future cash flow and cash reserves when COVID-19 claims are billed and costs for previously postponed treatments and procedures are incurred.

In a few simple steps, you can be better prepared to manage the future financial impact of COVID-19. Fill out the form to receive your report, and watch the video below for more information.

The financial impact of COVID-19 on a company’s finances is far more than just the cost of COVID-19.

Let’s look at cash flow.

  • Short term most employers will see a reduction in medical claims/costs.
  • Elective procedures postponed reduces the employer cost.
  • As people go back to work the result will be that some costs have been eliminated (visits/procedures that never occurred), some costs have simply been delayed (elective procedures) and some costs have increased (cost of COVID-19 cases, “at risk” individuals whose situation has deteriorated).

What does all this mean to an employer’s budget and cash flow?
The answer is “it’s complicated.”

Our Apex financial term is modeling the impact for our employers and prospects and we are taking into account all of these factors, plus several others, in order to project the cash flow impact that employers need in order to better understand THEIR financial position.
