The Challenge

North America’s leading marine equipment manufacturer was experiencing soaring costs between their existing PPO and Rx plans. Because of the distribution of employees across the nation, migrating to a new self-funded model proved not only logistically challenging, but there were questions about compliance in varying states.

  • Multiple employee “hubs”
  • Diverse range of employees; large disparity of socio-economics
  • Low benefits savviness
