“I’d recommend FBC, primarily because they’re very relational with personalized care for us as a company, to help us maintain the high standards of quality care that we want to provide to our employees, and to do that in affordable ways. And FBC has helped us think through our process for those things.”
President / CEO, Christian Family Care
Why Christian Family Care Chose FBC
Our initial review of the CFC benefit plan identified a “Retail Solution” in place for the medical plan, a need for greater proportionality in payroll deductions, and an unbalanced structure to their ancillary portfolio.
Like many employers who had been operating through the recession under tight budget restrictions, their health plan had evolved to a high deductible plan design which did not fit much of their workforce. We were able to restructure the plan design to be effective within their salary ranges while still operating below budget.
There was also a lack of effective communication regarding how benefits work and the advantages of consumer-driven products. Our careful attention to audio- visual content—well-presented in an in-person meeting format—allowed us to improve the perception of the benefit component of the CFC compensation programs. In subsequent years, we redesigned the disability plans to more adequately meet the needs of the employees. We have also set up an online benefit administration platform which integrates with the CFC payroll vendor and we have provided complete solutions for ACA and ERISA compliance. We also provide CFC with COBRA administration and in person reporting for HR questions.
In the past two years, Christian Family Care has doubled it’s size and scope dramatically increasing the number of children and families served. Healthcare cost increases have averaged less than 2% over the last few years. FBC is grateful to be involved with Christian Family Care.

“We started working with FBC primarily because of their expertise. They understand what we do: we operate Burger King restaurants. It’s a niche they understand. They have provided us consistent service and we trust them.”
President / CEO, Christian Family Care
Why Barnett Management Chose FBC
Barnett Management was referred to FBC by another restaurant organization that had worked with FBC.
Prior to joining FBC, Barnett Management had a benefit plan which was not adequately supported from a communications standpoint and was not as competitive as the market would allow.
FBC was able to introduce a level of HR support, which minimized pressure on the client’s human resources department to handle benefit-related topics and service issues.
Prior to joining FBC, Barnett Management purchased plans on a “retail basis” instead of a wholesale basis. These plans consistently ran above cost estimates.
In 1999, FBC introduced deductible reimbursement as a solution for Barnett Management. So far, this plan has been able to consistently save their company 10-12% on healthcare costs with multiple carriers.
Like most restaurants, Barnett Management has a mix of high-touch, service-level employees with variable hours and frequent turnover, as well as key management staff.
In addition, Barnett targets specific protocols for operations and adheres to a family-values based service model.
Therefore, benefit design needed to be engaging and appropriate to the wage scales, as well as communicated in a simple, understandable format and both in English and Spanish.
On-site orientation meetings and interactive presentations to both employees and family members have improved understanding of the benefit plans.
A recent introduction of Health Savings Accounts as dual healthcare/retirement savings tools has been popular and effective.
Year-after-year overview and renewal negotiations consistently result in low-single-digit rate changes, most recently allowing for a no rate increase renewal.
Caruso Turley Scott is the largest structural engineering firm in the U.S. Southwest. They have 82 employees in Tempe, Arizona.

Client of FBC since 1986
“We began working with FBC in the 1980’s when they first provided us the most competitive benefit program. Since then we have always counted on them to keep our benefit plans competitive with our industry. They have provided us with custom programs which have saved us money year over year. Our employees trust them completely. We wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
Chris Hecocks, Director of Human Resources
