Save costs, expand choices, and streamline benefits enrollment
Established by the Marion County Medical Society Insurance Trust Fund, and supported by Leading Edge Benefit Advisors, LLC, this 30 year old Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA) has been adopted by nine other counties across the State of Florida. Historically, the results of this program have been impressive, and are expected to improve even further given the anticipated cost impact of the Affordable Care Act.
The benefits of coming together
- Enjoy Economies – By becoming a part of a single, large group, everyone benefits from large employer economies and flexibility.
- Freedom of Choice – As members of a large group, your practice will have access to 11 medical plan design options. All plans are PPO’s on the Blue Options network.
- Cost Management – Because of added flexibility in designing plan provisions, the program has numerous cost-saving measures to better control long-term cost.
- Everyone Participates in the Good Years – Although fully-insured, the program includes a large group premium sharing arrangement that mandates a portion of the premium be
returned in years with lower claims activity. These funds are held in trust to help offset future rate increases, offering rate stability for everyone in the program.
