The pandemic has impacted nearly every aspect of the economy, including physician-owned practices. Conditions have become very challenging, especially for solo and small practice owners. TMA Insurance Trust is fully committed to the success of practice owners and we want to make sure you are aware of the free assistance and support that are available to you.
Help Managing the Cost of Benefits
Employee benefits are essential to attract and retain top talent to your practice. However, health insurance and other benefits can consume a significant portion of your revenue, so it makes sense to be sure you are getting the best value for your money.
Health insurance is probably the costliest benefit your practice offers. Your TMA Insurance Trust health insurance advisor will partner with your practice to optimize savings. For example, our advisors will work with you and your budget to conduct extensive research to determine the best plan, level of coverage, employer contribution and other factors that enable you to manage the cost of providing benefits.
Help Making Your Practice More Productive
Administrative burdens cost physician practices money and time that could be better spent on patient care. Managing employee benefits can be a frustrating and time-consuming process that diverts attention away from more productive work.
TMA Insurance Trust can take much of this administrative burden off your shoulders. Your dedicated agent can relieve you and your practice manager of the tedious tasks in the enrollment process. We will take care of enrolling all of your staff and their family members, making sure everyone on your plans receives their identification cards and other important policy information and updates. If you bring on new staff or if an employee leaves your office, we will handle the plan changes with the carrier.
Advocating for Your Practice
Our service doesn’t end when you sign up for coverage. Your agent can serve as a day-to-day extension of your practice staff. Your agent will communicate regularly with your group’s contact person and be a hands-on problem solver when needed.
We will also advocate for your practice with the insurance company. If there are any billing, claims or customer service issues, instead of someone on your staff sitting on hold with the carrier, we will contact the insurance company on your behalf to help try to resolve any issues.
All these services are provided at no additional cost to your practice.
No-Cost Benefits Review
If you are about to open a practice and looking to offer benefits for the first time, call us. If you bought health insurance elsewhere, before you auto-renew contact us for a second opinion. We will provide you with a no-cost, no obligation evaluation of your benefits program.
Our team is here to help you build a strong, but affordable benefits program. In addition to health insurance, we can provide you with free quotes for dental, life, accident, and long and short-term disability.
Let us see if we can help reduce some of the challenges of owning a practice. Talk to our agents to find out if we can help save you time, or save you money, or both. Please contact us today.
