Negotiate Your Best Possible Price

Group Health Insurance - How the Market Really Works!

Connie Chiara, President and Benefit of Corporate Benefit Partners

Are you getting the best possible price from the health insurance marketplace?

Since 1999 health insurance premiums have increased a whopping 213%. In 2016, the average premium for a group health insurance plan was $11,484.  Each year, employers face difficult decisions on balancing the cost of coverage with their desire to attract and retain quality employees. Taking advantage of our market driven system is one part of the solution. On average, 49% of Americans receive their health insurance coverage from the workplace. In Florida, we provide coverage to only 39% of our population.  Health insurance is costly and for many employers it is the single most expensive budget item next to employee wages.      
In this session, participants will learn:

  • What health care costs and how it compares with other financial metrics
  • Who the insurance industry players are and how they compete for your business
  • How an insurance carrier underwrites your business
  • How to leverage the insurance marketplace for the best possible price
  • Understanding the insurance brokerage system
