Large Group Plans

We know large group health plans. We’ve simplified the typical a la carte services by creating a comprehensive bundle of services. When you work with Conrad Siegel, a relationship is formed. This relationship means complete transparency with no hidden costs, positioning us to advocate for your benefits. As the leading actuarial firm in the region, our renowned actuarial expertise provides a distinct edge for you and your organization.

BRASS Bundled Services Packages

We’ve structured a set of benefit consulting services most requested by our clients called “BRASS.”   BRASS is packaged to efficiently, cost effectively, and immediately deliver more value. BRASS is a simple way to say “Benefit Review and Annual Strategic Services.” The core of packaging these related services into one, simple-to-understand suite of services comes from decades of experience in working with employers and plan sponsors and combining the services that return the most value to them in one annual fee.

“I often find that consulting firms seem more interested in just retaining the business than really caring about the client and their business. It is very refreshing to find a firm like Conrad Siegel that is willing to tell you what they think, engaging in a healthy back and forth dialog. The quality of the end products and deliverable provided by Conrad Siegel is top notch. They are error free, insightful, and very helpful.”
