Ken-Ton. GetMore Benefit.
The Ken-Ton Chamber of Commerce is excited to continue to bring our members the Bright Choices® Exchange from Liazon, a revolution in buying and delivering employee benefits. Now businesses can control the ever-rising costs of benefits, particularly health insurance, while offering greater choice and coverage to employees. In a few short years this innovative solution has saved millions of dollars for chamber of commerce members across New York.
Liazon partners with top providers to bring you the best selection of benefits. Our partners include:
The Bright Choices® Exchange features Fortune 500 type benefits for companies of all sizes, and includes:
8 Health care plans
- Health Savings and Flexible Spending Accounts
- 3 Dental plans
- Pet Insurance
We select the most varied and cost-effective plans among hundreds that are offered to ensure the diverse needs of every family can be met.
The Bright Choices online questionnaire guides each employee in personalizing their own benefits portfolio to get the best coverage at the lowest possible price. And when employees are involved in making informed health insurance choices, they become more active participants in their health care, leading to more preventive care and healthier lifestyles.
Bright Choices makes it easy. You get year-round service online and on the phone by licensed benefits professionals based right here in the US.
The Bright Choices Exchange is simply a “better way to buy benefits”.
- Employees are more satisfied because they get the specific coverage they need
- Employers finally get control over ever-rising insurance premiums, and simplify their benefits administration.
Ken-Ton Chamber of Commerce members can find out more by calling 716-819-4510.
