Beyond compliance and renewal of your plan, we can also identify opportunities to modernize your drug plans including a review of specialty drugs and generics.

Benefits for Your Retirees

Less than 30% of employers offer retiree benefits due to financial pressure and lack of HR resources. Yet there’s a significant aging workforce in need of coverage as they approach retirement age.

We have designed a suite of health, travel and life insurance benefits that can be tailored to your retirees’ needs. We work with our preferred providers, manage the administration and provide oversight on delivering relevant and affordable benefits to your retirees.

We help manage your employee transitions responsibly in these areas:

  • De-risking strategy
  • Communications strategy
  • Collective bargaining and negotiations support
  • Sensitivity analysis of liabilities and costs
