AVI-SPL, the largest global integrator of audiovisual systems and services, has announced it will join NSCA’s industry-specific insurance solution, SystemsPlusâ„¢ Stop Loss, which is part of the Health Solutions program.
The healthcare debate in Washington, D.C., has caused both small and large businesses to reevaluate their current providers and the best options for employee benefits, ease of administration and, most important, cost.
The Stop-Loss program is of great importance to a company like AVI-SPL because it allows both small and large businesses to take advantage of large-group discounts and lower rates. Larger groups have a lower percentage of their premium dollars committed to stop loss insurance. The program combines each individual group into one large group, thus maximizing cost efficiency and making more premium dollars available for claims and potential premium credits.
“I was impressed with the program that SystemsPlus offered to AVI-SPL and was pleased to support NSCA’s industry-specific solution,”? said AVI-SPL CFO, Nicholas Yancich. “SystemPlus offered the stop-loss protection I was seeking at a substantial savings over the competition. Also, they tailored the program to meet our specific requirements.”?
A self-funded program, SystemsPlusâ„¢ Health Solutions helps industry businesses stabilize their healthcare costs for years to come. The program is an ERISA-compliant tool that allows companies to finance their medical plans and save valuable time and money for employees and the company alike.
“There is a great benefit to participating in a nationwide program,”? said Ray Bailey, president of the SystemsPlus board of directors and Lone Star Communications. “SystemsPlus can help industry companies simplify health insurance benefits administration, control costs and offer consistent healthcare regardless of where the offices or employees are located. The whole idea of a program designed specific to this industry is to control costs and, with AVI-SPL’s commitment to SystemsPlus, the entire industry will benefit.”?
Participants in the program can:
o Access a leading national network of healthcare providers.
o Stabilize health insurance costs.
o Earn “premium credits”? based on program and individual company performance.
o Help employees manage health risks with preventative maintenance services covered 100% and not subject to deductible or co-insurance.
o Streamline HR through one contact and one program for their entire company, no matter where employees live or work.
“During these challenging times, NSCA members are showing their commitment to continuing to grow their companies and support their employees,”? said NSCA executive director, Chuck Wilson. “AVI-SPL has been a big supporter of NSCA through the years and this commitment will help other contractors stabilize their own healthcare through SystemsPlus.”?
