Keeping track of the variables affecting health benefits has never been more difficult – or more important. A constantly evolving healthcare landscape means employers are trying to reduce their risk and control costs while improving employee health and meeting the expectations of a changing workforce. An employee benefits consultant and broker can help you achieve your benefit goals related to controlling costs, ensuring compliance, attracting and retaining talent, and reducing administrative burden.
Controlling Employee Healthcare Benefit Costs
The rapidly rising cost of benefits is a constant challenge for employers. At Aon, we continually look for innovative resources and solutions to identify cost savings and impact your bottom line.
- Cost savings modeling tool: This proprietary tool helps employers customize a health and benefits strategy by bringing the right balance between cost management and employee perceptions. It also measures a range of savings opportunities for your company and identifies potential employee disruptions.
- Access to detailed carrier knowledge: Our team uses $650 billion in claims data, providing valuable information to your company about carrier discounts, network coverage, and provider access. Our national and regional carrier relationships deliver proven performance to keep costs down while offering the right plans your people will appreciate and value.
- Insurance marketing purchasing power: Our size and scale ensure our clients get the most advanced and competitive programs. As a result, you will know you are accessing proven carriers with the industry's best terms, conditions, and pricing.

With these powerful resources, our consultants can determine how your existing benefits compare with industry and market competitors.
