  Core Medical, Ancillary & VB Enrollment Firm

Seattle Benefits Consulting is your full service employee benefit enrollment specialist. Our broker partners can leverage the strong relationships SBC has with our voluntary carrier partners to bring exclusive VB plan designs, enrollment platforms, and on site benefit councilors to their respective clients. Additionally, SBC can fulfill and consult with you on cases of all sizes.

Benefits communication during your client’s open enrollment can be a tricky undertaking. Effectively explaining the benefits to each employee can tax a lot of resources for your agency and your client’s HR department. Partnering with SBC will take that burden off of you and your client, freeing up your time for other things. We have the capabilities to do face-to-face enrollments, telephonic enrollments through our call center, or passive web-based enrollments with call center assist.

We understand that your client and their employees’ experience with our counselors is paramount. Our counselors are required to have an active license in the state of enrollment. They are well versed in multiple enrollment platforms and plan designs. We conduct regular required training on all aspects of employee benefits and insurance offerings. They will also receive group specific training before each enrollment.

Look to SBC to be your full service enrollment firm. We will handle all new hires and provide ongoing claims service to all policy holders. Our agency is outfitted with a full time claims department, our claims administrators are cross trained on processes of our various carriers allowing us to be the mediator between the employee and the carrier, closing the gap on potential claim payment delays and employee/employer frustration.

  What are Voluntary/Enhanced/Ancillary/Worksite Benefits?

Aflac, Allstate Benefits, American Fidelity, Washington National, Reliance Standard, Unum, MetLife, Colonial Life, CHUBB… SBC is an experienced, trusted VB General Agency that can help you find the right VB fit for any size group.  Have you heard the hype? Voluntary benefits aka enhanced benefits, or ancillary benefits are the new employee benefit trend for employer groups of all sizes and demographics. Maybe a few of your clients already have these programs in place? Perhaps you have tried to implement on a case or two but seen very little participation? Did the process of learning about the products and educating the employees not seem worth the hassle? Or worse—your agency has producers who are slow to transition and so the door gets pushed opened for your competition. As revenues have gone down in the major medical sector, many brokers are looking for new solutions to bring in additional revenue streams. Suddenly, all the carriers are claiming to have the best products and services, yet your agency is experiencing minimal results with these “Enhanced” benefit options and enrollment strategies.

Shhh……Here is the secret the carriers DO NOT want you to know about. The right product is only PART of the formula.

We have participated in thousands of enrollments in all different industries and group sizes. We have the experience and understanding to help optimize your profits as well as your clients’ experience. Save your agency the time and frustration of trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t work for your client.
