As professional Employee Benefits Consultants, the Benefits Department of BIA manages hundreds of employee benefits programs and we pride ourselves on delivering unparalleled customer service. We specialize in partnering with multiple providers to develop employee benefits programs that best meet the needs of employers, helping them to both attract and retain valued employees.
We’ll sit down with you and analyze any existing benefits plans, identify potential problem areas and provide recommendations for enhancing your program. In short, we will work with you to develop a proactive, long-range benefits strategy that encompasses all areas of benefits.
Once your plan is up and running, we will be there “on call” to help you manage your program on a day-to-day basis. Claim questions, billing problems…we’ll be your “in-house” benefits staff. Your assigned account manager will personally contact the carrier or provider on behalf of your employees. Our experience and extensive knowledge enables us to answer any questions or tackle any issues at hand.
As the renewal date of your benefits program approaches, we will sit down with you and formulate renewal strategies based on your needs and objectives.
