"The possibility of better managing our medical claims and administrative costs through a self insured program with the added benefit of group purchasing of stop loss coverage. KBP’s service providers have provided PACE with the tools and reporting capabilities that greatly assists PACE in managing the medical benefits. McConkey has provided the services and guidance in the employee benefit areas that we have come to expect from them over many years of our association in other insurance products."
Chad Brenneman, Director of HR - CP Converters, Inc.
"The draw for C-P was the captive risk sharing model. When you have good years in the KBP model, you can build a surplus that can be used to offset future costs. If you have a bad year, you have the support of the group and captive model to take away the full burden of those large claims. The program has benefited C-P significantly in our first few years in the program. The team of McConkey Benefits and Benecon/BCC takes the initiative and keeps members informed of changes in the healthcare arena in a timely manner via email blasts, workshops, and face-to-face meetings with clients. They are responsive to your needs, with the goal of providing you and your employees the best service possible."
Michael J. Groft, President - MGM Enterprises, Inc.
"Prior to KBP, we had large healthcare claims that plagued us for several years in a row. During our first 3 years with KBP/McConkey, we now have a sense of confidence that we can manage the process more effectively. It is now a line item that we can effectively budget and not be as concerned about runaway health care cost...this collaboration allowed us to "level out" the challenging cost cycles that all companies face sooner or later."
John Forrey, President - Specialty Industries, Inc.
“The Dance!” This used to be my reference to the start of the health insurance renewal. Every year, three or four months prior to renewal, our broker would communicate our very large renewal increase. We in turn would communicate that no such increase could be accepted and the “dance” would start. It seemed like every other year we would be forced to change health insurance carriers just to maintain a reasonable increase. Frustration reigned throughout our organization as the elements of the new health insurance plan year were rolled out……usually at the very last minute. Those days are long gone since we joined KBP. We now have the ability to much better control our costs without switching carriers. This is very much appreciated by all.”
