About Value Added Services


Our commitment as your trusted insurance advisor is to assist you with your insurance needs including negotiations, implementation of plan designs, claims and risk management.

By utilizing our buying power, we have had great success in creating service options at reduced rates, partially subsidized or cost free. We offer our clients the following value added services:



   Human Resources & Safety Consulting

Ongoing Human Resources and Safety consulting will assist your directors and supervisors in employment related issues. Our consultants will provide practical advice on how to handle difficult employees, terminations, harassment issues and Human Resources and personnel management guidance for labor law compliance. If desired, fee based labor law attorneys may be referred for more in-depth counsel.




   COBRA Compliance & Administration

COBRA Compliance is one of the most expensive liability exposures that a company may face within their Human Resources Department. COBRA compliance involves numerous legal responsibilities that an employer is required to fulfill in a timely and consistent manner. This can often overtax even the most resourceful management team.

COBRA law is regulated by both the IRS and the Department of Labor. Compliance is mandatory. The law carries financially severe penalties for those employers who do not comply - as much as $500,000 annually.

COBRA services can be transferred to a professional organization that ensures your compliance. Our firm has developed relationships with a leading COBRA Compliance administrator in the country.
