Berg Andonian intervened when one of our employees was denied their disability insurance benefits despite a significant disability.

Identifying similarities within broadly labeled demographic groups – such as Gen X, Gen Y, and Millennials – enables us to develop specific benefit program design recommendations based on each client’s employee population.

Pilots use checklists, and so do we. With increasing regulatory burdens, our annual review and ongoing resources provide you, the employer, with confidence that compliance is in order and that any potential employer penalties are avoided. Our areas of expertise include: ERISA, COBRA, HIPAA, and PPACA (ACA), as well as state laws governing insurance plans.
We provide products and strategies to improve the health of the employee population through targeted wellness activities. Wellness initiatives help avoid certain claim costs and work to positively impact corporate culture. In a nearly full employment labor market, employers must compete on more than wages, and fostering a great culture is a strategic advantage.
