Comprehensive Renewal Analysis and Reports
We believe you cannot manage what you haven’t measured. Through analysis, we provide you with a clear picture of your claims situation and what’s driving your costs. There will be many options to explore, but we will help you choose the right tools, while empowering you to make coverage and funding decisions that work. We never hand off anything without giving you an informed point-of-view on what it contains and means.
We will guide you through the available funding options and find a balance between insured and self-funded programs giving due regard to your risk tolerance.
Negotiation with Unions and Insurers
We know negotiations can be time-consuming, challenging and even painful. So let our experts guide you. We can provide assistance in costing benefit demands, suggest alternatives for counter-offer purposes and review insurance policies to ensure compliance with collective agreement wording.
Studies show that the vast majority of employees don’t understand the financial stake that their employer has in their benefit plan. This is why we conduct employee information sessions that ensure plan members better understand their benefits, the associated costs and their role in containing those costs.
