Imagine going to a very nice restaurant. You sit down at a table and the waiter asks for your order. After you place your order he points to the kitchen and says “Please pick it up in 10 minutes. And when you’re done, kindly bring your dishes back to where you got them.”
Is this the type of service you expect from a high quality restaurant?
As the owner of a medical practice, we don’t have to tell you that providing group benefits for your employees can be costly. In fact, you could be paying a significant part of your revenue for employee benefits. So it makes sense that you are entitled to ask this question – am I getting the service that I’m paying for?
What to Look For When You Look For Group Benefits
Group benefits play a vital role in most medical practices today. A strong benefits package can help retain key members of your staff – and attract top talent to your practice. So what should you look for when looking to provide the best benefits for yourself and practice?
Quality Benefits With Cost Savings
Every medical practice wants to secure the best benefits at a cost they can reasonably afford. So it’s important to find an insurance agent or broker who not only provides access to top quality insurance products, but one who will diligently explore ways to optimize savings.
That takes closely partnering with a practice to get to know their individual insurance needs and the capability to match those up with cost-saving opportunities.
Let Your Insurance Agent Do The Legwork
Shopping for a benefits package can be time consuming and feel like a hassle-filled undertaking. You are in the business of helping your patients. You are not in the insurance business.
Find an insurance agent or broker who will thoroughly examine and compare plans and then clearly present your most suitable options. This will minimize your legwork and help you make the best decisions.
Maintaining and servicing a benefits package can take time and resources. This can be a burden on your staff that may already be stretched thin.
Your insurance agent should be able to shoulder much of the administrative work that comes with your benefits package. They should communicate with your group’s contact person on a regular basis and be a hands-on problem solver when you require assistance.

We consider it our privilege to advocate with insurance carriers on behalf of our members so they can feel confident they are making the best decisions to protect their health, their livelihood and their financial security.
Researching Your Best Options
We understand the value that your office staff and employees place on their benefits. So we will work to help provide you with the best options for your individual needs. To this end, we do extensive research on behalf of our clients.
As an example, in 2018, during the Health Insurance Open Enrollment Period of the Affordable Care Act, we were able to assist our clients by informing them of little-known waivers to certain guidelines. Through our research we discovered that these waivers could make it easier for some of our clients to access high quality group health insurance – and still be able to manage their costs.
