We take the extra step to manage the underwriting process, creating a smooth and easy process for you as an employer. We review all applications before they are submitted, work to obtain any missing information and follow applications until fully completed. We chart the offers to help you understand your options and outline the pros and cons of each carrier and their network. An educational benefit plan session will also be available for the employer and employee to ensure full comprehension of the benefits and package.
North Star has retained the services of Michael P. Paquette, J.D. who is able to provide consulting services* to you and your company on the following topics should you so choose:
Managers juggle various tasks, requiring a broad range of skills to successfully operate a business. In some situations, there may be an issue or decision that would be helpful to have an HR expert’s advice. An extra opinion or voice could help ease your mind with the situation. You seek human resources support and expertise - but only at these momentary decisions.
North Star Employee Benefits Division recognizes this occasional need and has teamed up with iVision Human Resources, LLC to help ensure that the recommendations made to you are a suitable decision for your company and employees, when the time comes. North Star and iVision provide HR On Call to answer your questions.
North Star recognizes the complexity and potential liability that the COBRA regulations impose on employers. Past employees are lingering concerns to your company. Employees who are no longer with your organization can continue to be an administration headache. Under state and federal law, they are entitled to a group health coverage certificate and if they opt to retain coverage under your group health insurance plan, you remain responsible for administration of their premiums.
*The term “consulting services” includes oral and written communications relating to gorup benefit legal issues, but does not include litigation related activities.
