We represent clients in a variety of industries and geographic locations. Working closely with insurance carriers, third party administrators and re-insurance markets, our primary focus is to structure funding arrangements in line with the client’s business goals and objectives.  Our professionals will perform in-depth due diligence on fully-insured and self-insured programs to evaluate historic cost results, price competitiveness, spread of risk, and population health risk.

We engage in a multifaceted approach to help the client meet their goals.  Through utilization review, a process and review for monitoring the use and delivery of services, we will continue to find innovative solutions to the complexity of health care services, issues, and costs.  We consult with our clients on the fundamentals of transferring risk v. managing risk to develop a funding arrangement strategy.

In addition to an in-house staff of financial analysts, we partner with one of the industry’s most highly respected actuarial firms to provide unmatched, in-depth analysis of your plan, including actuarial services such as:

  • Mid-year renewal projections

  • Plan design analysis

  • Stop-loss analysis

  • Self-funded feasibility analysis

  • Medical and pharmacy network discount analysis

A FOCUS ON UNION

“We have been working with EBC over a number of years and have been extremely pleased with everything that they have done for us. Our members have received great service and overall have year over year saved a significant amount in premium from where we were."

The Status Quo does not work!  In today's environment, management and union need to come together and strategize on ways to provide a cost-effective employee benefit plan.  As the only local broker with a Union division, our consultants will work with both union and management to tear down the walls, understand the details behind the risk and renewal, and develop a long-term strategy.
