GroupHEALTH North - Benefits and Pension is a member partner of GroupHEALTH Benefit Solutions and has been providing benefits to employers since 1981. This partnership allows us to provide industry leading products and unsurpassed client service and quality in Group Benefits administration. We provide service to Canadian organizations of all sizes in the private, public and civic sectors. That size translates into leverage in the marketplace, allowing Group Health North to procure excellent rates and valuable add-ons which we pass on to you.
At Group Health North we are committed to a consultative approach in designing, implementing and servicing our clients benefit programs. Our 5 step service model is designed to be proactive and intuitive.
We first conduct an analysis of your company to better understand your company goals and distinct work environment. We will review your plan design to determine the competitive nature of your program within the marketplace. We will do a comprehensive analysis of your plan’s financial history as well as the underwriting method versus alternative funding arrangements.
Once our evaluation is complete, we recommend a benefit package that we feel best suits the specific needs of your company. We take time to explain our recommendations in great detail and encourage feedback from the client to ensure we have the right plan design in place and ensure the client is comfortable moving forward.
After the evaluation report is accepted, we conduct a market survey in order to match the plan with the right insurance provider at the right rates. Once we have settled on a carrier, we then assist in enrolling employees on the plan. We make ourselves available for employee enrolment meetings so we can explain the benefits package to employees and answer any questions they might have.
Communication is a constant within each step of our process. We make sure that once the plan is up and running, we continue to be in steady contact with our clients to readily address any issues that may arise. We strive to make life easy for you by taking many of the day to day issues of benefits administration off your hands. We encourage clients to make us their first point of contact if there are any problems or concerns with claims, billings or administration.
As your benefits program evolves over time, we continually monitor your plan and will provide quarterly financial reports on the claims status of your plan. We will offer regular information seminars to the participants in your program.
We have GroupHEALTH’s entire pool of business behind us when we negotiate with insurers on your behalf. We are able to secure extremely competitive rates; and when we approach an insurer about a unique new product like ASI or optional benefits, they listen. By dealing in large volume, we reduce administration fees.
At GroupHEALTH North, we are committed to providing exceptional customer care and ensure our clients are completely satisfied with the services available to them.
