A Texas Small Business Saves Money With Creative Benefits Solutions

March 26, 2021

The Situation

A Texas small business had low participation in their unaffordable & inadequate health plan. They were also saddled with a cumbersome enrollment method and a broker that was unable able to offer them the necessary creative solutions.

The Solution

FBMC Benefits Management, Inc suggested that the client move to a level-funded plan where the use of Humana’s proprietary underwriting tool was utilized to streamline the underwriting process. A level-funded plan is a partially self funded plan that includes the customization of a self funded plan, and has the financial security of a fully funded plan. FBMC recommended a level-funded plan because of it’s cost affordability and comprehensive benefits package for employees.

The Texas small business was able to raise participation with a quality, comprehensive benefits package.

The Results

  • FBMC Benefits Management, Inc. was awarded the business.
  • Now they are able to offer a comprehensive, competitively priced benefit package that rivals those offered by most larger employers
  • Premium rates were reduced between 60%-230%, while providing plans with increased benefits
  • Due to lower rates and richer plan options now offered, participation went from under 50% to nearly 100%
