Defined Contribution Strategy

Taking a consultative approach to your organization's budgeting strategy

Fixed employer contributions are a good choice for organizations that face continued pressure on affordability of health benefits. When paired with a private exchange or marketplace, defined contributions stabilize costs for employers and give employees a better understanding of the total cost of their plan.

How it Works

Defined contribution allows employers to establish an annual dollar contribution amount per employee to spend on all health care plan coverage.
  • Employer contribution uses pre-tax dollars
  • An employee uses the employer contribution to select products that best meet their needs
  • Employers have multiple options to structure a cost-effective approach to help employees pay for their benefits
  • Employees stay invested in making smart choices
