Expect great Customer Service
Our superior service lasts throughout the entire annual process. Initially, we listen to you to determine your objectives and perform a needs assessment. Next we research the marketplace to find plans that fit your needs and deliver a comprehensive Analysis Report. We work with you to choose the best options for your business. We manage plan implementation and will facilitate group and/or individual enrollment meetings with your staff. We also provide custom benefits summaries, online enrollment, and on-boarding support.
EBMG helps each client meet federal and state compliance standards as well as insurance company requirements. We provide the annual certificate of creditable coverage, IRS Forms 720 and 5500 in signature ready format. We will help clients determine if they are a controlled group and/or ALE. We provide guidance on minimum essential coverage, affordability and non-discrimination matters.
Throughout the year our staff will assist you and your employees with needs big and small from providing you with information pertaining to ACA compliance, helping with a billing or claims issue, or even helping an employee find a doctor. We pride ourselves on providing timely and accurate communications year-round. This is our pledge to every client.
EBMG also helps our clients maintain a healthy employee population through our wellness initiatives. Our clients who have committed to the wellness program often realize 0% rate increases or even rate reductions. Let us show you how you can have a healthier and happier team with lower medical plan costs!
