LET OUR TEAM QUOTE YOUR TEAM!
As part of their compensation package many employers provide health insurance as a benefit of full time employment. Yet insurance only does HALF THE JOB... it doesn't really keep you healthy.
Employers are designing workplaces that often involve recreational spaces, flexible hours, even ping pong tables in an effort to boost morale, lower stress, and increase productivity. Shouldn't your benefits plan to do the same thing?
At 843 Benefits we work with all the fully insured carriers everyone is familiar with, but we also work with level funded programs that offer underwritten rates to healthy groups, rewards for active participation, and even Apple watches for employees to help track their activity.
The process of underwriting with these alternative carriers also provides us with a health assessment of your group, so regardless of the plan you choose, we can help you address common issues amongst your employees.
Are you confident enough in your current provider to give us a shot? If we can't show you a cheaper, more sustainable strategy for health insurance we'll cater a lunch for your office!
BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD
Fully Insured refers to traditional insurance from carriers you know like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Blue Choice, United Healthcare, and Cigna. These plans charge you a premium based on rates that are filed with the state and are only affected by age, zip code, and smoker status. If you have less than 50 employees there is no chance of being declined or rated up for medical conditions, but there are also very few rewards for good health.
843 Benefits was established based on the fact that with fully insured business we can't do anything about the rates. What we could do, was provide the latest administration and enrollment technologies for free, connect you with other business services that provide amazing service, and give your employees a community wellness program designed to get them engaged in healthier activities.
Under a level funded plan, an insurance company determines a funding amount for the year based on the employer’s prior experience or health assessment. Then the employer pays a set amount to an insurance company every month to pay for claims, fixed costs, and administrative expenses. This regular, equal payment is why the product is called a “level” funded plan.
After the end of the year, if the total claims, costs, and expenses are less than the employer’s contributions for the year, the employer gets a refund. If the total claims, costs, and expenses are more than the employer’s contributions, the insurance company covers the shortfall.
This model is exciting to us at 843 Benefits because we can help employers and employees take control of future rate increases by reducing risks and promoting healthy activities.
