We understand the importance of reviewing the strength of a provider prior to recommending them. Therefore we review the financial health of the insurance carriers using reliable empirical research from a number of highly respected independent rating services.
Knowing that price is only one part of the equation, we make it our business to evaluate providers customer service, claims performance and any other considerations such as a stability of management or a potential merger or acquisition that could impact their performance. Our team will continue to monitor their well-being after implementation and alert our clients if any concerns arise.

We conduct on-site group meetings, one-on-one counseling, and staff benefit fairs. Our team can create benefit statements, booklets or build easy-to-use online benefit websites to successfully convey the employee benefit program.
