Why is it important for physicians/groups to have this coverage or these services in place?
In today’s market, employees are weighing benefits as heavily as incomes. If your organization does not have an insurance plan needed by a potential employee, you may lose high quality employees and medical professionals. It’s also always a good way to let your employees know you appreciate them via a Total Compensation review.
If you want to expand on your insurance options available to employees and partners, you can add voluntary benefits at no cost to the business or you can choose to pay for a portion of the insurance premiums (e.g.: 10, 25, or even 50%). You can also make flat dollar contributions and your employees can then determine which benefits are most important to them and apply these “cafeteria benefit dollars” towards the cost. These additional benefits could include life, disability, dental, vision and wellness options. Our team can help you determine the best possible selection of voluntary benefits to offer your staff.
Who should reach out to your team for coverage (what stage of life, what age, etc.)?
Practice owners or managers, HR persons, anyone who is helping make the decision regarding which benefits and which agency to work with should reach out to us to compare plans, explore additional benefits or get a quote.
Tell us a little about your background and why you do what you do?
I have 17 years of experience in insurance – all focused on Employee Benefits. I’m dedicated to helping people find insurance solutions because I’ve seen the importance of having good coverage through my sister’s Leukemia cancer journey and via my brother-in-law’s sickle cell anemia and death. I also love working with physicians because my sister’s and her husband’s physicians all came to their wedding, some of whom had been treating them since they were five.
What’s different about WisMed Assure?
My role here has always been to help create and maintain the best employee benefits insurance solutions and services for the health care companies of Wisconsin. Since I began, we have added multiple services and solutions that many of our clients have embraced and benefited from premium savings with increased benefits.
We are the only agency exclusively serving health care companies and physician practices. Additionally, profits earned by WisMed Assure support the mission of the Wisconsin Medical Society.
What is your favorite client story?
I had a client who had issues getting services for their son. I was able to use our relationships to not only get a referral, but also medications approved within 24 hours.
Another client experienced a massive rate increase. Their existing insurance agent showed them lots of insurance quotes but no strategies. We were able to save this group of 12 nearly $100,000 and still offer rich benefits!
