CEDAR RAPIDS, IA--Crestron Electronics has joined the growing number of manufacturers and systems integrators participating in the SystemsPlus Health Solutions insurance program. SystemsPlus Mutual Insurance Company (SPMIC) was created by NSCA in 2006 to provide a variety of insurance solutions and began offering health insurance in January 2009. The addition of Crestron brings the total number of lives in the program to more than 3,000, which allows for even greater discounts and stabilized rates at a time when healthcare reform is at the top of every business’s concerns.
“This is a win-win for our industry,” said Randy Klein, executive vice president of Crestron Electronics. “We are pleased to join this impressive list of industry leaders who realize the significance of providing the best healthcare options to their employees, while at the same time helping smaller integration companies with their struggle to offer benefits for their people. We recognize how expensive providing healthcare coverage is for our systems integrator customers, so we jumped at the chance to help them.”
SystemsPlus Health Solutions is designed to help commercial electronic systems companies combat rising health insurance premiums. The program offers innovative alternatives, such as wellness initiatives and, most important, the ability to receive future credits toward insurance premiums.
“Having a large firm like Crestron join our program sets the stage for SPMIC to extend the program to smaller companies,” said Ray Bailey, president of the SystemsPlus Board of Directors. “Over the course of the last few months, other groups like AVI-SPL, Ford AV, LMG and Mitek Communications Group have all joined the organization. Many smaller businesses make up this industry, so it is important to help them purchase insurance as if they had the purchasing power of a 3,000-employee company. It’s a very exciting benefit that the association will be able to provide.”
As the recent healthcare reform continues to cause business owners and employers to wonder how their current programs or rates will be affected, NSCA’s SystemsPlus Health Solutions provides a great opportunity to get involved in a program
that is ERISA-compliant and will meet all the standards of any new program created.
Program participants can:
o Access a leading national network of providers.
o Stabilize health insurance costs.
o Earn “premium credits” based on program and individual company performance.
o Encourage employees to manage health risk. Preventative maintenance procedures covered 100% and not subject to co-insurance or deductibles.
o Reduce the burden on HR through one contact and one program for their entire company, even if you have branches in multiple states.
