Plan Support

We differentiate ourselves from other employee benefits consultants, by focusing on an integrated approach to your organization's benefit strategy design. Each benefit plan and plan design, including wellness initiatives, health care, life insurance, disability plans, and retirement plans, all have direct impacts on your organization's time-off programs, your employees' productivity, and their ability to save for their future. As part of our strategic methodology, we incorporate all of your benefit programs into a multi-year strategy in order to achieve Better Health, Better Costs, Better Value, and a Better Experience for your organization and for your employees.

When it comes to determining the right programs for your business and for your employees, we have experience and expertise in the following areas:

  • Medical plans (HMO, PPO, CDHP)
  • Dental Plans
  • Vision plans
  • Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance
  • Short-Term & Long-Term Disability
  • Health & Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)
  • Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
  • Wellness initiatives
  • Voluntary plans (critical illness, accident, hospital indemnity, Long-Term Care (LTC), pet insurance, legal plans, and auto/home insurance)
  • 401(k) plans
  • Deferred compensation plans
  • Time off plans (paid sick, vacation, personal, holidays)
  • Leave of absence programs

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

MORE WAYS WE CAN HELP

Discovery, Analysis, Solution Design, Implementation

Strategy Design

We actively engage employers and employees in their benefit rewards programs by designing a multi-year benefit program strategy and roadmap that incorporates four key components: Better Health, Better Costs, Better Value, and a Better Experience.

As employee benefits consultants, we offer a unique, competitive advantage. Our methodology and processes involve:

  • Discovery - Understanding overall business objectives; assessing drivers of employee attraction, retention and engagement; determining cost drivers; and collecting qualitative insights through client and plan data, census reporting, demographics, program participation, utilization, and employee and executive feedback surveys
  • Analysis - Benchmarking current plan designs; developing cost projections and financial impacts; predicting health risks in your employee population; and determining  opportunities for improvement
  • Solution Design - Modeling plan designs and programs specific to your company objectives and cultural and population health management needs; positioning value-based programs, centers of excellence, voluntary plan support, and other cost management initiatives; setting a contribution strategy; developing a plan governance and compliance roadmap; identifying resources and a communication strategy that educates and creates employee engagement
  • Implementation - Execution of recommended solutions and assistance in administrative processes and procedure development; continuous education and communication

We help businesses (i) optimize the value of their benefit programs; (ii) develop benefit programs that fit their culture; (iii) alleviate cost pressures; (iv) assist in meeting recruiting and retention targets; and (v) support a culture of employee engagement.
