The Open Solution™ offered by MBA Benefit Administrators is an innovative new medical benefits plan that allows you more control over the cost to provide benefits for your employees.

Expect a 25% decrease from previous plan year costs

The Open Solution’s™ auditing and re-pricing formula provides greater savings than standard discounts. This increases your organization’s cash flow and stops the ever-tightening squeeze on your employees’ paychecks.

No Networks

Because our plan doesn’t rely on forcing employees into networks to obtain dubious discounts, your employees are free to see any provider and use any facility. This allows people more freedom and control over their healthcare.

Chronic Conditions

Pro-active medical case management helps to prevent costly medical stays and procedures by utilizing nurse case managers throughout the continuum of care; preventative coaching, episode management and maintenance consulting.

Open Access

Easily solve multi-state issues by offering the same benefits to all employees throughout the US. Our plans are governed by ERISA, not the State. No network restrictions mean simpler administration and reduced costs.

Isn’t it time to take a different approach? One that empowers your organization to take control of your health care costs?  Let The Open Solution™ offered by MBA Benefit Administrators work for you.

The Open Solution™ is the collaboration of multiple high-powered cost containment strategies.  These proven approaches will substantially reduce the costs of providing health benefits to your employees. The plan gives organizations control over the price they pay for healthcare and employees the freedom to choose which providers and facilities to use.

The Open Solution™ SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES healthcare costs and health insurance premiums for organizations with 100 or more employees.

Implementing The Open Solution™ will enable your organization to retain cash flow and improve the financial health of your business. It’s time to stop the ever-tightening squeeze on your employees and your organization’s finances.

The Open Solution™ approach to reimbursing claims is based on pure transparency. This formula provides a substantial reduction in hospital costs.
