"I tend to call them lazy brokers who just send the renewal and go, ‘Well, that is what it is this year. Good, good luck with that.’ There's really a lot that can be done, but it takes a broker that wants to get into the nitty gritty of it in order to look at what those options are.”

"I really like health advocacy benefits. So health advocacy is a service that allows employees to have someone that they can call to help them with difficult medical bills. And if you've ever dealt with complex medical situations, those bills can be terrifying, confusing. They can take a long time to resolve. And having a health advocacy service that can kind of take that work on is great for the employee because it takes a lot of stress off.”
