Let's explore how they're reshaping the health insurance game and how innovative solutions like ICHRAs can make all the difference.

Baby Boomers, who once dominated the workforce, are gradually retiring, making room for the rising stars – Millennials and Gen Z. These younger generations make up a significant part of the American workforce.

Millennials Are Reshaping Healthcare

Millennials, those born between the early 1980s and mid-1990s, are a major force in today's workforce. They have some distinct healthcare preferences:

- 87% have a dedicated primary care provider.

- 69% use fitness apps to stay healthy.

- 63% turn to social media for healthcare information.

- 58% have tried telehealth at least once.

What's the takeaway here? Millennials expect high-quality digital solutions from their healthcare providers. They research doctors and healthcare professionals online before making decisions. They want transparency and control over their healthcare choices.

Interestingly, as they age, millennials are facing more chronic health conditions, especially millennial women. So, flexibility in healthcare options and the ability to choose providers that suit their needs become crucial.

Gen Z's Perspective on Healthcare

Gen Z, also known as Zoomers, are currently 25 and under, and they're the future of the workforce. Understanding their needs today can help shape the healthcare plans of tomorrow.

Here's what we know about Gen Z:

- Half of Gen Z use social media for health-related purposes.

- Over 22% use social media for health information regularly.

- Gen Z is known for being "online all the time," which should encourage healthcare providers to invest in telehealth and digital solutions.

What's more, Gen Z is also more open about mental health issues. Healthcare coverage should cater to their diverse mental wellness needs.

ICHRA: The Solution for Diverse Employee Benefits

Healthcare is not a one-size-fits-all situation. Recent research shows that unsatisfactory benefits packages can drive 43% of employees to leave their jobs.

This is where ICHRAs (Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangements) come into play. They're not just about tax-free benefits; they offer employees more choices for their healthcare options. ICHRAs can be tailored to specific demographics, meeting the unique needs of each group.

The rise of AI and hyper-personalization means younger generations expect nothing less from their service providers. ICHRAs empower employees to prioritize their health, keeping them happy and productive.
