By reviewing your benefits objectives, constraints, and contribution levels, Carleton Insurance Agency can identify and schedule long-term benefit strategies and contribution methodologies to help control costs over the long term. The benefits of strategic planning include fewer carrier changes, fewer benefit design changes, and consistent contribution plans.
We will annually market all lines of coverage and negotiate with the appropriate carriers for the lowest possible cost. We then analyze the competitive quotes, and re-negotiate with the desired carriers. The Plan Design Review, Network Analysis, Open Enrollment Coordination, and Annual Benefits Report are handled entirely by our team of professionals.
CLAIMS EXPERIENCE REVIEW
On a quarterly basis, Carleton Insurance Agency will meet with your company and review the claims experience from the prior quarter (if applicable) in order to strategically plan for the renewal. Such preparation will eliminate potential surprises.
One of the NEW services offered to our group clients is the creation of personalized Employee Benefit Statements. In addition, our employee “Quick Tips” trouble-shooting guide helps reduce frustration with carriers.
