At Abbot Benefits Group, our sole aim is to ensure that each client receives the best insurance benefits plan for their needs. Depending on your unique situation, it may be advantageous to offer additional benefits to supplement your medical insurance or other benefit plans.

Think you might need supplemental insurance? Here are some examples of how we help employers choose the right add-ons for their benefits plans: Health Reimbursement Arrangements In Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), employers reimburse employees for some – or all – expenses on their medical plan. A common use of an HRA is to increase the deductible on the medical insurance plan and then reimburse employees for the additional deductible expenses, if incurred. Abbot Benefits Group will consult with you and take a holistic approach while structuring your benefits plan to determine whether a Health Reimbursement Arrangement is a good choice for you.

Group Medical Insurance Provider Houston, TX | Abbot Benefits Group. Our team brings deep experience in medical insurance in all aspects for small and medium-sized businesses.

Not sure what kind of medical insurance is right for your business? Abbot Benefits Group can help! Here are some of the most common ways we help our clients ensure that their medical plans are built for maximum benefits: Fully Insured Plans These are the most traditional – and most simple – medical insurance plans. Employers pay a fixed monthly premium to the health insurance company. This allows for all liability for paying claims to be transferred to the health insurance company. For small businesses (fewer than 50 employees), these plans are best for employer groups with higher risk/higher claims.

For medium-sized businesses (more than 50 employees), these plans are best for employers that prefer a fixed monthly budget. Level-Funded Plans Level-funded plans have become increasingly popular for small businesses. Private Exchanges Self-Funded Plans Medical Captives.

At Abbot Benefits Group, we maintain a deep well of resources to help guide clients through their toughest HR challenges. Why are we so committed to helping with HR? Insurance benefits are closely related to HR on many levels.

In fact, your internal HR admin is likely also in charge of employee benefits. Our clients utilize our human resources support as a value-added service to enhance their existing HR framework. A certified HR specialist Our partnership with Benefit Concepts, Inc. gives us direct access to a dedicated HR specialist, which we pass along to our clients. HR can certainly be challenging – but it doesn’t have to be. Insurance Compliance Assistance Houston, TX | Abbot Benefits Group. Compliance can be a significant burden when offering benefits – and the consequences of failing to comply are far-reaching. With fluctuating regulations and requirements, keeping each piece of your benefits plan fully compliant is a never-ending task.

We aim to make compliance as stress-free as possible. This starts by communicating all updates with our clients, and continues with providing solutions throughout every step. Our insurance compliance assistance covers a wide range of regulatory challenges, including: ACA compliance Distributing required notices; understanding and complying with benefit and affordability regulations; handling ACA reporting (Section 6055 and 6056); formulating calculations, and assisting with filing for PCORI fees. ERISA compliance Establishing required ERISA plan documents and summary plan descriptions for the benefit plans; distributing required notices; and preparing and filing Form 5500.
