Move From Level-funded to Self-funded Yields Huge Savings, Same Great Benefits 

The Challenge
The Challenge
Waiting on Hold Instead of Getting Care

An investment research company based in New York, needed an insurance company that would work with them—not against them. More specifically, the owner’s wife found herself constantly dealing with the burden of multiple phone transfers, being put on hold, and fighting to fill prescriptions and gather essentials for their diabetic son. With over 200 employees, it became clear that if the owners were seeing this amount of hassle just to maintain their basic healthcare needs, then their employees must be struggling as well. This company needed a healthcare provider that would:

  • Eliminate the need for constant calls and follow-ups, freeing up personal time
  • Make employees feel heard, appreciated and respected
  • Maximize the cost-to-coverage balance, without dramatically upping prices
  • Find lasting solutions with flexible options
