Benefits for employers and brokers
Employers can quickly find a local broker to help them manage a plan for their business, or create a plan on their own. Employees can quickly compare options and pick a plan. Using the online system will typically take less than 30 minutes.
With help from brokers, employers can select a plan that best reflects the needs of their company as a whole. Some options allow employees to select from a range of plans to best meet their needs.
It’s affordable and makes costs predictable.
Employers can set a “reference” plan by plan level or by carrier and see how much it will cost per month to offer coverage. Employees have the option of selecting from a variety of plans that allows them to best manage their health care costs over the year.
