Our Strategy

Driving transformational change in the employee benefits industry

We have the experience and know-how to bring transformational change to your people and your business. Our winning strategy starts with these three principles:

Know Your Numbers

We believe that wellness is not an option, it is a mission critical business priority and every employee has a role. That’s why we teach employees to use your company’s health plan proactively for prevention and early detection.

Don't Get Worse

A longer high claim list correlates consistently to poorer plan performance, translating into challenging renewals. While we cannot eliminate high claims altogether, we can make a meaningful impact by changing unhealthy behavior through education and engagement.

Create a Culture of Health

By investing in health, prevention and early detection, we can help your company achieve sustainable pricing and optimal employee health.

CoBiz ‘Walks The Talk’
