We service what we sell
All administration and payment of claims are done in-house by our dedicated team at Select Benefit Administrators, located in Ashland, Wis.
Rates are not based on demographics, industry or geographic location.
Monthly and hourly plans can be customized based on each group’s budget and benefits needs.
The Shared Maximum Benefit Option provides a second type of plan design for your consideration. Our standard set of benefits each have individual maximums, but with this option, you can give the insured the ability to share one Maximum Benefit Amount for the preselected core benefits.
