Benefits of a Public Agency Employee Benefits Insurance Pool

An insurance pool allows for multiple public entities to group their needs together in order create a larger group. The advantages of this are numerous, including:

  • Cost stability: by creating economies of scale, pool members can often purchase coverage at lower rates as a result of being able to improve your claims rating. Additionally, as Keenan manages a significant number of pooled solutions, our expert teams can assist with negotiating with even more leverage for your pool.
  • Customization: Keenan’s pool management is reactive to your pools unique needs. We can facilitate wellness programs, voluntary benefits, and so forth, which specifically address the requirements that your members need.
  • Flexibility: Pools have the ability to implement carve-out programs, such as innovative pharmacy benefits or health reimbursement accounts, which can present cost-savings and cost-stabilization options to your members.
  • Control: Keenan assists our pool clients with establishing a management structure that allows for consensus-building between member. And more importantly, we have the tools to take your pool leadership through the strategic planning process to ensure that your pool is being proactive not just to today’s needs, but toward long-term stability of your pool.
