What You Need to Know Before You Need to Know it

The health insurance and group benefits landscape is complicated. Rather than just trying to keep up on changes ourselves, we pride ourselves on being the ones out there on the forefront educating employers about changing regulations and the latest healthcare cost containment techniques. We typically conduct six webinars a year that are free for employers to attend, and publish at least three educational articles each month right here on this site, bringing you tips and tactics to manage your employee benefit plan more successfully.

We also regularly speak at public seminars sponsored by the Mile High and Boulder Area SHRM chapters, Mountain States Employers Council, the Colorado CO-SHRM conference, the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, and more– and all those events will be published here as well.

Check back regularly for update as you navigate your current healthcare challenges.

  • The Ten Most Common COBRA Mistakes
