I think Walls and Floors should take care of this?
Materials should naturally mesh if they intersect. If not use 'Join Geometry'.

It is interesting to me that you place insulation below the slab foundation. We would not do that in California. however you can add a separate wall that is insulation only to the foundation edge if that is your concern.

Not sure where ichlove is from but up here in Canada we do insulate below the foundations. Not always but it sure helps if you have the budget.
