Their business is made under water but their employee benefits rise to the surface
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
Keep your benefits above the waterline
Given the complexities found within the demographics of a manufacturing workforce, moving to a more flexible model allowed the group to maximize the cost reduction strategies specific to this industry. They were able to implement:
- Medicare-Like Rates
- Transparent pharmacy benefits manager PBM
- PPO with full Transparent Health Benefits
- Incentives to high quality facilities
How real customers feel about transparency
The generosity we received from your company health plan is without words. Our family could not have afforded the over 50 days of hospice care Jack received here in our home during his fight with COVID-19. I am not sure how we would have paid for the cost, but, because of you, we were able to spend time with Jack on his last days… at home. I only hope your other employees, and their family, appreciate you, and your plan, like we do. We will always be grateful.
Given we are on a high-deductible, it is great to know what I am going to pay before I get the service. The advocate always gives me options; I don’t mind driving a bit to save hundreds, even thousands… it’s my money!

Just wanted to thank you for putting in this new plan. I have been needing this back procedure for over 3 years now but could not afford it. With our new plan, I was able to go to the same doctor I have been seeing and it was FREE. I am now pain free and able to spend more time with my grandkids. I can not tell you how much I appreciate working here!
