Serving employers with 1,000+ employees.

Employers with 1,000+ employees often have a secured business model, a stable workforce and an employee benefits plan that is an integral component of total compensation.

  • Account management teams staffed with consultants, account executives, account coordinators, client services managers, underwriters, analysts, compliance experts, graphic designers and concierge service representatives.

Serving employers with 100-999 employees.

Employers who have grown their workforce to the 100-999 employee range face a distinct set of employee benefit challenges. In this phase of growth, employers must focus on managing risk, considering for the transition from fully insured to self-funding and adhering to increased standards of benefit compliance. And in many cases, HR staffing must have more than one professional devoted to benefits.

Bim Groups customized solutions for employer clients in this space include:

  • Robust account management staffing
  • In-depth fully insured versus self-funding healthcare financing analysis
  • Compliance auditing
  • Strategic employee communication development
  • Hands-on open enrollment support
  • Full scope of services from employee communication to concierge claims service to manage each component of an employer-sponsored plan

  • Hands-on staffing
  • Turn-key compliance services
  • Full access to pool and association healthcare markets
