Forging a Strategy Based on Analysis

One of the services that we offer at CBG Benefits is providing a detailed benefit plan analysis.

Through this service, we will analyze your company’s plan data from top-to-bottom.

We may do this by looking at claims data, responses to employee surveys, and other key pieces of information.

4 Components of a Successful Strategy

The analysis effort enables us to help you select benefit programs and plans that meet the goals and objectives of your organization and of your employees.

We do this by following a strategy that includes these key steps:

  • Identify significant cost drivers
  • Accurately model plan changes and estimate renewal outcomes
  • Develop strategies to reduce utilization and plan costs
  • Determine where to focus your efforts on changing employee behavior

The actual tactics chosen as a result of those steps will differ from business to business. But following this strategy will ensure that the benefit plans and programs you choose are aligned with your overall goals and objectives.
