CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, January 5, 2009 — As industry companies look to cut costs yet remain competitive for potential employees, NSCA is pleased to announce the January 1 launch of SystemsPlus Health Solutions, its newest member service program that can help stabilize health insurance costs now and in the future.
SystemsPlus Health Solutions is designed to help commercial electronic systems companies combat rising health insurance premiums. The program offers innovative alternatives such as wellness initiatives and, most important, the ability to receive credits toward insurance premiums.
“NSCA assists its members with all aspects of their business,” said NSCA Executive Director, Chuck Wilson. “This program allows members to obtain the benefits of large-group pricing in a time when saving money without sacrificing profits is essential.”
Participants in the program can:
o Access a leading national network of providers.
o Stabilize health insurance costs.
o Earn “premium credits” based on program and individual company performance.
o Reduce paperwork.
o Streamline HR through one contact and one program for their entire company, no matter where employees live or work.
“Lone Star Communications Inc. was searching for the right coverage at the right price, and SystemsPlus Health Solutions provides all that and more,” said Lone Star Communications President, Ray Bailey. “NSCA is constantly discovering innovative ways to help its members in times of need, and the insurance coverage will allow us to invest in new opportunities to help grow our business and stabilize our health care costs.”
SystemsPlus also provides property & casualty and surety insurance solutions. NSCA members who have taken advantage of these programs have already saved up to 40%.
"We put SystemsPlus on a tight, tough timeline to move our insurance from our previous company and agent, and they came through beautifully," said Carolyn Eblin, Vice President of Finance for AMT Systems, Inc. “They saved us money on our premiums. They are personable, professional and easy to work with. Thanks for offering this program through NSCA."
