Our Approach to Employee Benefits Services

Cost Savings

First and foremost to most business owners is the cost of providing health care benefits. Understandably so, because benefits can be as much as one-third of an employee’s total compensation.  The good news is that with Axcet’s large group plan, we can drive down the costs and protect you from big price swings.

Expertise

Our HR consultants have the resources to find you the best options for your business. Because of the relationships we build, we know the unique challenges and opportunities your business needs to address when obtaining insurance.  We’ll find what’s best for you and your employees now and in the long run.

Hands-Free

We administer 100% of the plan.  We source multiple plan options to get the plan that’s right for you and your business.  We conduct every step of the open enrollment process – including in-person, on-site meetings.  We keep you compliant with regulations – including the Affordable Care Act (if applicable). And we make sure your employees have their cards and answer all questions to ensure a smooth, hands-free process for you.  So you can focus on the rest of your business.

The Benefits of Employee Benefits

There are so many reasons to provide employee benefits, which:

  • Help small and mid-sized companies compete for good employees
  • Lower employee turnover
  • Keep teams healthy, boosting productivity
  • Improve morale and job performance
  • Employee Benefits Strategy
  • Employee Benefit Services

An optimal benefits package empowers employees to take better care of themselves and effectively prepare for their futures, so they can bring their best to work every day. Giving people the tools they need to stay well frees up the energy and brainpower they can devote to their jobs.

So, employee benefits don’t just benefit employees. They are critical for business growth. Partnering with Axcet for employee benefit consulting services helps you get the most out of your benefits, your employees, and your business.

For small business owners, choosing and administering a health care plan in today’s complex market could be a full-time job. And most, frankly, don’t have the time or expertise required – or the budget to provide truly competitive benefits.

Fortunately, Axcet closes those gaps so you can offer your employees first-class benefits at a small-business price – without all the legwork it would take to do it on your own.

We source multiple options to find the plan that’s exactly right for you and your business. We conduct every step of the open enrollment process, including in-person, on-site meetings, answering all questions to ensure a smooth, hands-free process for you. On an ongoing basis, we administer 100% of the plan.

PEO Employee Benefits

Small and mid-sized businesses tend to think about cost first when they consider health care benefits. That’s a logical concern because employee health insurance can account for up to one-third of an employee’s compensation.

As a certified professional employer organization (CPEO), Axcet leverages economies of scale to make high-quality employee benefits affordable for small and mid-sized companies. We pool our clients’ employees into one large group to create bargaining power with insurance providers. That way, smaller companies who work with the expert employee benefits consultants at Axcet gain access to big-business benefits at small-business rates.

When you want the best employee benefits you can get for your budget, Axcet’s large group plan drives down your costs and protects you from big price swings!

Employee Benefits – Frequently Asked Questions

Employee Benefits Services

If your small business is administering benefits and handling government compliance in-house, you’re probably finding that those tasks – while important – are complicated and time-consuming. And, if they aren’t done quite right, you risk disengaging your employees and incurring hefty fines for non-compliance.

That’s where an employee benefits consulting firm like Axcet comes in. Taking advantage of our PEO employee benefits services, you have access to our specialized skills, our deep experience in the benefits marketplace, and our detailed knowledge of ever-changing local, state, and federal regulations. You gain certainty that your company’s benefits are always on a firm footing.

We alleviate the stress and burden of employee benefits administration and compliance by handling:

Benefit plan design and procurement

Our top employee benefits consultants work with you to choose plans that meet your company’s and your employees’ specific needs.

Annual benefits review and renewal management

We make the annual renewal process turnkey, ensuring that your health insurance plans remain competitive and include benefits tailored to your workforce.

Employee eligibility management

As an employee benefits solutions provider, we determine new hires’ benefits eligibility and manage status changes like marriages or new children. Then we add new employees to the plan, collect premiums, pay providers and reconcile employer accounts to ensure accuracy.

Benefit plan communications

Through clearly written materials and supporting visuals, we educate your employees about their benefits so they both understand and appreciate their options. We also use state-of-the-art, intuitive technology to simplify online enrollment and make benefits information accessible to your employees 24 hours a day.

Claims assistance

When claims are denied, Axcet works directly with your employees to resolve the issues, saving you and your team the time and frustration of navigating the complex health insurance system.

Legal compliance

From the Affordable Care Act and the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, we ensure our clients consistently comply with complicated federal laws. Small and mid-sized companies that rely on Axcet for expert employee benefits services avoid compliance headaches and non-compliance penalties, while saving valuable resources they can use to focus on their core business.
