Dental
In today’s increasingly competitive job market attracting and retaining quality employees is a major focus for employers. Many employees, both current and prospective, use a company’s benefit package as way to evaluate how the employer values their employees. Dental coverage can be an inexpensive investment in your company’s future.

 

Levels of treatment

Preventive: Usually provides for an exam every two to four times per year, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants and spacers (certain limitations apply).
Basic: Usually includes fillings extractions, oral surgery, root canal, periodontics and repairs to crowns.
Major: Coverage usually includes crown, inlays, porcelain restoration, endodontic, full and partial dentures, certain adjustments, bridges, repairs, implants and non-surgical TMJ treatment.
Orthodontics: Coverage is typically for dependents up to age 19. Adult coverage is also available.


Benefit Specialists can assist in the selection of a dental plan for your company’s needs. Please contact us at 701.492.7372 or 800.383.6375 for additional information.

Vision
Good visual health plays an important role in the contributing to your employees’ overall health. Vision care is a relatively simple benefit that can be viewed as extremely valuable to your current and prospective employees. It is currently ranked as the third most requested
benefit, following health and dental, by employees across the country.

 

Periodic eye examinations are an important part of preventative healthcare. Many eye and vision conditions have no symptoms and your employees may not be aware of potential problems. Early diagnosis and treatment are important for maintaining good vision and preventing permanent vision loss.

 

We have found vision to be incredibly popular with our current clients. Contact Benefit Specialists at 701.492.7372 or 800.383.6375 to learn more about vision care options to protect your company’s most important resource, your employees.

Group Life insurance
Group life insurance is one of the benefits to consider, in order to achieve the goal of having a good benefit package. Fortunately, group life insurance is one of the most affordable types of insurance you can provide for your employees.

 

      A group life insurance plan should be reevaluated and reassessed when your company grows significantly, hires executives with larger salaries, increases in number of employees, the demographics of the employee population changes, or when it improves previously offered benefits.

       

      Contact Benefit Specialists as your business grows for more information on which group life insurance plan is best for your company.  Also, if you have not reviewed your group’s plan recently, you may be eligible for a lower life insurance rate.

Short-Term Disability
Many people believe that insuring one’s income is the most important form of insurance. Offering short-term disability insurance shows your employees you care for their families should they become sick or injured off the job, for a short period of time and are unable to work.

 

Maternity benefits are also a part of short-term disability. Employees have found the maternity benefit extremely rewarding and of great value financially when out on leave. Employers have found this benefit to contribute greatly to employee morale.

 

Let Benefit Specialists develop a customized plan for your company’s needs. Please contact us at 701.492.7372 or 800.383.6375 for additional information.

Long-Term Disability
A long-term disability can have profound and long-lasting effects on an employee, his or her family and the company they work for. For the individual, long-term disability insurance can mean the difference between maintaining their quality of life and the pressure of making ends meet during a stressful time.

 

The complexities of long-term disability can be overwhelming, not only for those eligible to receive benefits but also for those charged with developing company programs and procedures. We can customize your plan with a host of options including covering you in “your” occupation, cost of living adjustment clauses and benefit periods that extend to social security normal retirement age. Benefit Specialists can assist in the decision making process from market research through implementation.

 

We have the experience and industry knowledge to simplify this process for you. Contact Benefit Specialists today for your customized plan. Please call 701.492.7372 or 800.383.6375.

Long-Term Care
As the cost of healthcare and healthcare related services continue to rise, employees should consider the fact that their retirement assets and health insurance may not be adequate to fund their long-term care needs. Long-term care insurance can be offered on a group or individual basis.

 

By offering long-term care to your employees you are helping them prepare life’s unexpected changes such as illness or disability due to an accident. Long-term care offers an excellent solution to enable your employees to preserve their quality of care and their families’ quality of life when services are needed.
