How do I buy group insurance?

Buying group insurance doesn’t have to be daunting. There are a few key things to consider: your budget, your needs and wants, and who you want to work with. A seasoned broker can help you arrive at a budget, isolate the needs from the wants and create a sustainable package that will work for you and your employees today and tomorrow. Contact BIS to get expert advice on your group insurance needs.

Why is group insurance so expensive?

If you follow the cookie cutter format for insurance benefits plans, they can be expensive. With rising drug costs and the impact of mental health in the workplace (i.e. growing absenteeism due to mental health issues), things don’t seem to be changing. But there are so many creative ways to build an insurance program that there’s no excuse for not coming up with a high-value, financially-sustainable program.

A valued group insurance program requires a partnership with your broker, as well as creative analysis and design to implement a plan that works for you and your employees. BIS prides itself on becoming a part of your team to create the right solutions for your company.

How do I address employee benefits on international assignments?

Be sure to speak with a professional before the employee move occurs to avoid any surprises. Among the items to address in these situations are the group benefit needs and the provincial insurance program.

Leaving the country can have an impact upon return if the provincial plan hasn’t been notified. As well, carriers need to approve these types of arrangements to ensure they will continue to contractually cover the employee under the group benefits, during their absence from Canada.

BIS is seasoned in this area of specialty and works diligently to address all the employee and employer risks that may be associated with the employee’s move.
