EFFORTLESS

Companies have assumed more and more responsibilities and many are stretched thin. We relieve the burden of educating employees, streamline your renewal process, and keep you up to date with compliance and legislative news.

RENEWAL SERVICES


We offer accurate and verified premium prices, plan specification and eligibility data.  We compare performance with others in the field for cost and utilization data benchmarked against nationally recognized norms for a single period.  In addition to many other services we negotiate reductions in rates and plan alternatives from carriers.

STRATEGIC SERVICES


We gather an accurate picture of employees' needs and priorities through implementation of an extensive questionnaire.  We compare your current plan design to  benchmarks given your region, plan type, group size and industry.   We also aid in resolutions of claims issues, ongoing administration and communication of claims, case approvals through work with underwriters and carriers – quickly resolved problems and managed outcomes.  

ENROLLMENT


Watkins Group will reduce administrative time, create better efficiency and ensured accuracy for the enrollment process.   We will also aid in completion of carrier applications and supplemental information as required, including support in the completion of applications, contracts, checks and collection of enrollment materials.

Employee Communication


We share monthly newsletters promoting wellness programs and healthy living as well as provide materials for employee benefits education, promoting smart benefits use.   Watkins Group helps to improve morale and appreciation of the company benefits package with statements that educate employees about their "hidden paycheck."  

LEGISLATIVE COMPLIANCE


We provide up-to-date information on legislative developments with easy-to-understand explanations of what they mean to you.   Including an estimate of the potential shared responsibility penalties your organization could incur under health care reform.  We share extensive guides to compliance and how to best handle employee communications.

HUMAN RESOURCES


Watkins Group offers a custom employee portal and promotes the engagement and retention of employees.  We also share a customizable handbook including recommended policies and corresponding forms.
