EMPLOYEE GROUP BENEFITS PLANS FROM THE EXPERTS AT FBC
If your business or organization offers group benefits to your employees, FBC can help. As one of Arizona’s largest and most experienced insurance and benefit consulting firms, our team provides businesses of all sizes and trades with expert benefits guidance, management, and consulting. Both healthcare and employee group benefits are experiencing rapid change. FBC is your partner and guide to understanding the impact of both major legislation such as the Affordable Care Act, FMLA, COBRA, and others.
FBC DOES THE FOLLOWING FOR YOUR
Benefit designs must be specific to wages and working environments. It does no good to have plans with deductibles which are too large for low paid workers and it is a waste of resources to allocate benefit dollars to plans with low acceptance. Finding the right fit for your employees is a skill born of experience and compassion. Benefit designs must also keep pace with the evolution of health care delivery methods and value networks in order to offer the maximum opportunity for cost savings. The increased interest in telemedicine and push for alternative delivery methods will make it increasingly important to offer these options.
We have a dedicated staff focusing on the accurate completion of master contracts between the employer and the insurance carriers to insure what was promised gets delivered while offering a plan compliant with all regulatory authorities. Successful implementation of programs requires a practiced work schedule to careful attention to the venues, time frames, and sequence. Our work process will result in the timely deliverance of identification cards and insurance plan booklets, as well as the satisfaction of your employees.
Communication of benefit plans is vital to gaining an improved paradigm about work environments. The ultimate goal of an effective benefit program is to enhance employee’s perception of their compensation. Effective communication requires the use of multiple media, appropriate print materials, and online benefit admin enrollment tools which makes plan selection easy and intuitive.

“We have worked with Chris Durkin and his staff at FBC for more than 25 years. In that time, we have grown from less than 25 employees to one of the top employers in our county. The level of attention and effort FBC has given us has been consistent throughout our growth. The expertise they provide our organization not only saves us a significant amount of money, but also allows us to focus our time and energy on business operations. The knowledge and professionalism they bring to the table is so important in today’s ever changing insurance landscape. Above all else, Chris and his staff are genuine, honest, and caring. I cannot recommend them highly enough. ”
