Our Process

When you work with our team, we like to start by gaining a comprehensive understanding of your business; assessing your current health plan, and comparing it to the needs of your employees. From there we’ll offer specific recommendations geared towards delivering you a package of services that will save you money.

Once we’ve finished building out a benefits package that works for you and your employees, we’ll continue to stay by your side, helping to facilitate enrollment. In addition to helping you facilitate enrollment, we offer an easy to use online enrollment platform called Ease at no cost to you. Whether you have 2 or 250 employees, everything you need to educate and enroll your employees and administer your employee benefits is securely housed in one place.

Group Insurance Plans

Our Benefits Team will help you plan and implement the right Group Insurance plan that offers peace of mind to your employees and is in line with your business priorities. A Group Plan is designed to be more cost-effective for employees and your business as the insurer’s risk is spread across your group of policyholders.

We can customize an insurance plan that includes any of the following:

  • Group Health Insurance
  • Group Dental
  • Group Vision
  • Group Disability (Short Term & Long Term)
  • Group Life Insurance
  • Supplemental Benefits
  • Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
  • Individual Benefits

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a great way for both you and your employees to save on rising healthcare costs. Now, Choice has partnered with Lively to bring you an intuitive HSA administration experience. See how you can elevate your benefits with a Lively HSA. More Info ›

Group Health Insurance

Our Benefits Team will help you plan and implement the right Group Health Insurance plan based on your employee’s and your business’s priorities. A Group Plan is designed to be more cost-effective for employees and your business as the insurer’s risk is spread across your group of policyholders.

Group Dental

It’s no secret that medical care without insurance can be costly. Dental care can be similar. Dental insurance helps pay for all—or a portion—of the costs associated with dental care.

Group Vision

Set your sights on better savings and a healthier workforce. Offer a solution that encourages necessary care and protects employees from excessive out-of-pocket costs.

Group Life Insurance

A nice addition to your complete employee benefit package. Offer additional peace of mind to your employees with a group life policy.

Group Disability (Short Term & Long Term)

If your employees get hurt or sick and cannot work, protect their ability to earn an income by offering short and long-term disability coverage as a benefit.

Group Supplemental Benefits

Providing employees with access to voluntary benefits gives them options to enhance their coverage with supplemental health and insurance solutions.
