First Rehab Life Launches Packaged Employee Benefits At Flat Rates

First Rehab Life’s innovative “BenePaks” make Employee Benefits easy
June 25, 2012 - PRLog -- After the initial launch of BenePaks in Pennsylvania in January, 2012, First Rehab Life (The First Rehabilitation Life Insurance Company of America) now offers these employee benefit packages in its home state of New York.

First Rehab Life’s philosophy has always been to make insurance easy for producers and employers alike. With this vision in mind, BenePaks simplify the application and administration of multiple products in one package: one application for the employer, one enrollment form per employee, and only one group number for employees to remember. Additionally, benefit levels and prices are pre-set for each package. These features make the presentation and application process easy for brokers and the decision and enrollment process simple for employers as well as employees.

Employers can choose which packages to offer to their employees, or have their employees select the package of their choice. First Rehab Life currently offers three BenePaks to choose from:
•   CorePak includes basic protection in the form of Term Life, AD&D, and Hospital Cash Insurance.
•   ClassicPak and ChoicePak provide higher benefit levels for the CorePak products and include Dental and Vision.

With First Rehab Life’s niche and expertise in the small group market, it recognizes the importance of  providing these packages for groups as small as two participating employees with bguaranteed acceptance.
To accommodate today’s tight benefits budgets, BenePaks come with a built-in package discount and can be written as employer-paid, contributory, or voluntary plans that are employee-paid at the same pre-set price: rates are the same regardless of employee ages, funding option or participation level (within underwriting requirements). BenePaks also come with a two-year rate guarantee to provide peace of mind. Spouse/partner and/or dependent coverage is available at additional cost.

Recent trends have shown that an increasing number of New York property/casualty agencies are focusing more of their attention to group benefits than ever before. First Rehab Life’s DBL roots and close-knit relationship with the independent broker community allow the company to take the pulse of such developments and proactively develop concepts that complement this major segment of the New York insurance arena.

Constantine Lappas, COO, who oversees product development, explains: “Small neighborhood businesses make up a significant client base of the agencies we work with and are often left out when it comes to group employee benefits: they are usually too small to get customized attention and be underwritten by most carriers. Often times, these businesses don’t have experience in selecting benefit levels and are simply looking for straightforward benefits that allow for an easy, one-stop decision process. We are confident that BenePaks will bring employee benefits within easy reach for these businesses.”

For employers without a benefit budget who choose to offer BenePaks on a voluntary basis to their employees, the pre-packaged constellation of benefits provides employees with multi-featured yet simple options to meet their needs and built-in discounts that help them fit those benefits within their budgets.

Together, BenePaks and the newly introduced suite of BaseLine insurance (i.e. guaranteed-issue group insurance products with only one rate per employee, one pre-set plan design, and one bill that don’t require any rosters or enrollment forms), expand the path of the company’s mission of simplicity.
