If you are interested in offering new and lush benefits to your employees, you may want to consider reaching out to a licensed representative at HRBC. They’re experienced with all types of insurances, and especially those plans that are available to employees nearing retirement or turning 65.
Additionally, to providing great benefit information, offering services from those local providers and provider groups will help introduce some great practices for your employees. Some of the areas that can be offered are those critical screenings such as blood glucose testing, blood pressure checks, eye exams, healthy eating practices and more.
