Learn what you can expect to save.
…we’re confident you too will see why MBA is a national leader in third party administrative healthcare benefits.
A Comprehensive On-Line Enrollment Wizard: Employee self-enrollment or HR department enrollment methods, including ancillary program enrollments and billings.
HR On-line Capabilities: View, adjust and approve on-line employee eligibilities; check claims status, print reports and plan documents all from one place.
Multiple Employee Access Channels: Employees can view on-line their claims status, eligibility and account balances of reimbursement plans such as HRA, HSA, Flex and Executive Reimbursement plans. In addition, we offer all employees our MBA App, where they can:
On-line Document Management: In one place view specific documents such as:
HSA Services Integration: MBA seamlessly integrates HSA plans with HealthEquity Services. Claims information is electronically transferred from MBA’s claims system to HealthEquity employee accounts. There is no need for paper claim filing or second-guessing the eligibility of expenses. Even employee eligibility is updated through MBA data feeds.
HRA Reimbursement Plans: MBA’s administration processes allow clients and their participants to rely on accurate and timely processing of reimbursements. Eligibility, billing and remittance of claims, integrated scanning and storage allow for real-time remote access.
Section 125 Flexible Spending Plans: MBA Benefit Administrators coordinates with employers to offer Section 125 Flexible Spending administration and help employees save money on medical expenses. Providing this benefit for your employees is like getting a 30% discount on Medical Premiums, uncovered medical expenses and dependent care.
COBRA Administration: MBA Benefit Administrators can handle all of your COBRA requirements. We will mail and track notifications, coordinate COBRA payments, receipts and reporting and ensure claims match “paid through” dates, plus give you on-line access to all activities.
Metrics Based Pricing: Why rejoice over a 30% discount on a claim that is 1000% too high? Metrics Based Pricing reduces claims to a “cost of service + reasonable margin” level by auditing claims for unfair markups and inaccurate or fraudulent billing. This results in an average $1500 per employee savings – AND WE DO IT WITHOUT RESTRICTIVE NETWORKS!
Medical Management Services: Proven to reduce hospital admissions and the average length of stay.
HealthSteps™: Wellness plans and initiatives that do make a difference in the overall health of your workforce and drive down health claims.
Prescription Benefit Management: With an average reduction of 9.4%.
Internet Prescription Bidding: Allowing employees to save up to 87%.
Actuarial Projecting: The projection of benefit costs and savings is one of our underwriting core competencies. Go ahead – suggest benefit changes, add or drop a plan component, change eligibility: MBA will accurately determine the financial impact on the plan and offer suggestions to tweak the benefits to suit your objectives. We offer the facts then you call the shots.
With very little work this easily opens a lot of doors you wouldn’t otherwise get through. Furthermore, local employers like local expertise. They welcome the neighborhood broker who can answer service questions or help with the employee enrollment process. All you have to do is be ready with competitive products at the appropriate time.
If you wander the halls of your group clients under the guise of service, you’ll be surprised what you uncover and how much more you can sell – just because you’re accessible.
With very little work this easily opens a lot of doors you wouldn’t otherwise get through. Furthermore, local employers like local expertise. They welcome the neighborhood broker who can answer service questions or help with the employee enrollment process. All you have to do is present your own insurance lines and solutions – the same products you currently sell – when the need arises…and it will!
• Key Person Insurance
• Buy/Sell Agreements
• Deferred Compensation
• Estate Planning
• Retirement Plans
• P&C Products – Both Business and Personal
…the list could go on and on. MBA doesn’t provide these products, but with the group health business already captured you’ll be in a position to favorably present your own policies and services.
Each easy cross-sell has the potential to be very profitable as now you, the group health broker, are a trusted resource. Make one sale and it won’t be long before everyone wants to talk to you just because you are the tacit face of insurance within a group client’s company.
Group health is rarely a stand-alone product. With today’s tax codes a group health plan almost always immediately calls for HSAs, COBRA administration and the like. In addition you’ll be finding a lot of ancillary sales.
That’s a good, stable building block for a broker’s income. Year after year the same commission is paid the broker and year after year the deep well for cross-sells keeps on giving.
In the meantime, adding new groups just keeps the broker’s income growing to the upside.
• What’s the average commission on a home owner’s or auto policy?
• How often do you dig up on your own a million dollar life policy or high 6-figure annuity?
• How easy is it to scrape up new business?
Contrast that with the group health broker. MBA, for example, pays brokers handsomely (on average $25 per employee per month) for every group they sign up. On top of this are your multiple cross-sells for several product lines. With a good base group health income and constant cross-sells, a commission from one group can rack up quickly.
