The unique financial arrangements offered through their Multi-Employer Advantage Plans provide enhanced buying power for small to medium size businesses with the volume discount advantage of a traditional association style plan; however each company program would be set up on a standalone basis for contract, billing, administration, and service purposes. Additionally, unlike most association plans, the Multi-Employer Advantage Plan allows complete flexibility to design the coverage to meet the unique needs of your employee population. This provides the best of both worlds, multi-employer plan savings with less risk than standalone or association plans, however standalone for all other aspects.
