The Buckner Company has a unique way for our Small Employer clients to come together and purchase healthcare benefits as a large, self-funded group to better control health plan costs. Employers meet quarterly to review plan data and we to understand the data and anticipate the increases or decreases that are coming down the plan’s pipeline. This allows our clients the opportunity to minimize risk, predict budget, and better forecast for potential renewal increases.
THE BUCKNER DIFFERENCE
WE STAY CURRENT
By belonging to professional organizations and subscriptions that give you access to the most recent information and cost efficiency strategies, delivering the most significant possible value and convenience to your employees and their families.
WE DO THE HEAVY LIFTING
…so you don’t have to! Staying current on the ever moving target and, ever-changing regulations is a daunting task for your HR Staff. Compliance is an added stress to manage, train, and steward your limited benefits resources. Knowing what questions to ask, we keep regulators of your doorstep by keeping you compliant.
WE DO OUR OWN ANALYTICS
By using our own methods based on years of underwriting and analytical strategies, we negotiate better rates, plan designs, and improve and resolve many of the high-cost healthcare claimants for your organization. Insurance companies employ skilled underwriters whose job is to make sure they earn a profit. Our team has the skills and experience to contest conclusions that burden your plan with unrealistic cost predictions.
An Award-Winning Benefits Team
Collectively, we have accumulated decades of experience working with all insurance funding methods. Because of this, we are able to effectively advise our clients based on real-world, operational experience. This translates into an ability to guide our clients safely through the complexities of varied funding methodologies.
Additionally, we bring deep expertise in insurance underwriting and data analytics. This expertise is a critical part of our ability to help our clients spend their employee benefits dollars in the most effective way possible.
