Available now, to NRB members exclusively, is an opportunity for potentially significant savings through a new program established by the association.
NRB is excited to announce the establishment of the NRB Health Care Insurance Referral Program, which seeks to reduce cost and improve healthcare coverage for organizations through analysis of existing programs and current plan designs with applied integrated technology and proven premium savings.
NRB, which itself is a nonprofit organization, realized a savings of $85,793 in the first nine months through the program, and anticipates an annual savings of $114,000.
“Health Insurance costs are high and getting higher,” notes NRB Director of Membership Melissa Sturgis. “By implementing this program, NRB experienced significant savings, and we want our members to have the opportunity to do the same.”
For the program, NRB is working with InterWest Insurance Services and Incenta, which will offer their services exclusively to members of NRB.
Those who take advantage of the offer could be able to save as much as $1,000 – $3,000 per employee per year without decreasing the level of coverage, without changing their insurance, and without needing to exclude their broker.
“We do not sell insurance – we help organizations and individuals choose their insurance based on needs and budget,” says Interwest Employee Benefits Broker Taryn Bacon, who is the point of contact for the program. "We do this by educating them on how their plan works and what is available in the market and through their employer."
InterWest Insurance is licensed in all 50 states and is the 59th largest agency in the U.S. The privately held agency has close to a century of combined experience and was awarded the “Best Practices” designation, which recognizes them as one of the top-performing agencies in the U.S. with regards to client retention, stability, and financial management.
For more information, call Taryn Bacon at 800-444-4134 ext. 8463 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bacon has 25 years of experience in group health insurance and extensive knowledge of the Affordable Care Act.
