Group Benefits

Beyond insurance products, CHS Insurance works with you to design an affordable, comprehensive benefit program to fit your specific business. We can be your partner to keep current with the ever-changing health care industry, ensuring you continue to offer a benefits program that supports staff loyalty and productivity. This often includes bringing active health care management to your workplace through our incentive-based wellness programs. Carefully designed wellness programs help motivate staff to meet age- and gender-specific health guidelines, while ensuring individual privacy through independent evaluators.

Human Resources Support and Services

Businesses of all sizes often look to outside resources for human resources or employment administration support. CHS Insurance offers every level of service, from a HR Hotline where employers can speak to a human resources professional on any employment-related topic all the way to full-service HR outsourcing. We can even step in on a project basis for tasks such as a human resources policies and procedure audit, employee benefits education or employment manual updates.

Worksite Programs

Most employers are familiar with worksite products such as Accident, Life Insurance and Critical Illness. When you partner with CHS Insurance for these, however, our services are unique from the rest. We use professional, salaried enrollers through one-on-one meetings, resulting in employees who truly understand exactly what products they’ve purchased and why – a key element in a satisfied worker.

Executive Disability Plans

Traditional group-based long-term disability plans typically do not cover all of a “key” employee’s compensation, if disabled. We have designed our Executive Disability Plans to fit on top of your group long-term disability plan to provide up to 85% of the individual’s pre-disability earnings replacement.
