Small Group Healthcare

Small business depends on stretching each dollar to build a competitive workforce. Conrad Siegel knows that providing competitive healthcare benefits at an affordable price is tough for any organization today, even more so for small business owners. We’ve simplified the typical a la carte services by creating a comprehensive bundle of services. Our goal is to remove all commissions from your plans.  If this is not possible due to carrier restrictions, we take the commission paid by your insurance carrier and put it dollar-for-dollar toward services that benefit your business. Unlike some service providers, we fully account for every commission dollar and completely disclose our compensation.

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.

We can customize a BRASS package based on your organization’s needs. Our small business healthcare benefits include:
