Industry:
Retail Client
Employees:
36,000
Challenge:
A company was faced with significant cost increases to their long-term disability program for the coming year. Believing we could reduce their current long-term disability and life spend by at least 25% we reached out to them.
Solution:

We learn what’s inside. Rather than simply bid the business, we analyzed all the components of risk and developed strategies to mitigate it.

Outcome:

Don’t take our word for it, believe the numbers. We reduced their costs by over 30% and enhanced the company’s benefits.

  • Using a “risk segmentation” strategy we removed the poorly performing division from the risk pool and placed the bad risk in a non-experience rated contract.
  • We provided options to help with the subjective claims and to try to return employees to work sooner, resulting in further savings.
  • Our absence management specialist helped the client take a closer look at possibly developing solutions to prevent disabilities in this group.
  • We were able to position a re-enrollment strategy for the supplemental life, which led to greater savings on the basic life.

The client retained our firm to review their self-funded/self-administered short-term disability program.
