ALEX Drives Huge Savings for Star Group

Mark Rader Benefits Communication

For 2015, Star Group, a marketing communications company, moved from offering two slightly different PPO plans to offering a single PPO and a new HRA plan with a higher deductible–and brought in ALEX to help with the transition. As a result of the clear and personalized explanations provided by ALEX, a whopping 80% of Star Group employees enrolled in the HRA, resulting in a 10% cost savings for Star Group and a 30% savings for employees.

Said Lisa Tamborello, SVP of Human Resources at Star Group: “We had anticipated a lower level of enrollment, but once ALEX started communicating with employees and letting them know about our wellness incentive, the number went up. The projected savings for both Star Group and Star Group employees are substantial.”
