As you know, Boston Light Source enlisted BBI’s services just prior to our insurance carriers’ renewal period. We wanted an honest assessment of our current plans and suggestions on how to offer our employees the best benefits package without imposing any financial strain.

After two meetings you presented us with a portfolio of alternative plans compared to our current one. Each plan presented in a clear and consolidated manner with just the facts for us to analyze. The amount of time you saved us is undoubtedly one of the biggest advantages to using your services. Other advantages include:

  • Alternative plan designs offering a wide range of choices and alternative funding approaches.
  • Preventing our old carrier from raising our rates an additional 10% because our growing company exceeded the maximum number of employees allowed.
  • Moving a Principal from a very expensive supplement program to a better, lower-priced plan that cut his personal cost by more than $5,700 a year.
  • Moving the company to a plan that was 4% less than our renewal.
  • All changes were facilitated quickly and efficiently by your team.

We consider the plan changes to be a success and you continue to be our go-to with any questions that come up. Your services are ongoing with free COBRA administration and access to an online HR database tailored to our company. You and your team are knowledgeable, accessible, and a pleasure to work with. Thank you.

For the past six years, the team at BBI has been a strategic partner in establishing and maintaining benefit programs for our employees. Their customer service and quick response to our needs are critical to our success in obtaining competitive and cost effective benefit packages.

In addition, BBI provides our employees with complementary annual benefit statements. These statements serve as a strong tool in which we communicate the value of the benefits our company provides. You will have to look long and hard to find a more dedicated and capable group to meet your organization’s needs.

We have been with BBI Benefits for two years now and are extremely pleased with our Broker Chip Brogan and our Account Manager Lynne Bradley. The service is exceptional! We recently renewed 5 lines of business with BBI. We were provided with competitive options for all lines of business and have had great results for both our cost and benefits management.

Chip and Lynne handled our open enrollment and was there to provide well informed personal attention to our employees. We had some issues with the Automatic Billing through [Carrier Name] and BBI was there to answer all of our questions and solve all of our issues.

I love [BBI’s] amazing resources as well, especially their HR help service, which is complimentary to all their clients. I would recommend BBI without reservation, for any business who is looking for a highly reputable, customer-focused, and very personalized benefits broker. You won’t be disappointed with BBI.

Human Resources Director, NATIONAL QUALITY REVIEW, Boston, MA

We rely completely on BBI for benefits planning and implementation for a simple reason: They are the best I’ve ever dealt with. We first came to BBI more than a decade ago, looking for a new approach to our health benefits, the cost of which had threatened our company principle of providing top-tier benefits to all employees. Jim Edholm designed a new plan that melded HSAs, high-deductible coverage and other features that kept us with the same insurer, with identical coverage, at a far lower cost to our company and with zero financial impact on our employees. That’s a clear win.

Northeast Manufacturing Company has had a 10 year relationship with BBI Benefits.

During this period you have represented us in the field of medical, dental and life-short term disability insurance.

We have been extremely pleased with the level of service and the representation provided by BBI. In this world of ever increasing insurance costs, it’s assuring that we have an agent like you working for us.

Looking forward to the next 10 years!

I can’t say enough about Carol. But is makes sense that people as nice as you would hire people like her! She is a pleasure and although I dislike Obamacare more than anything, she made it easy…

Marsha Webb

HR Manager Claims Bureau USA, Woburn, MA

My company has employees in 48 states, and complying with all those laws can be a burden for a company’s HR staff. I value Companies that deliver on what they promise. This has been the case with BBI Benefits. They provide us a resource, at no additional cost that can answer every compliance-related question. I am approached by competitors offering their services but I will remain with BBI Benefits as they deliver as promised and obviously value their customers.

John Brussard

CEO Claims Bureau USA, Inc. Woburn, MA

Thanks for all your help – your BBI staff is awesome and always extremely helpful.

Olivia Perry

Administration Manager, Merrow Manufacturing, Fall River, MA

Our office has utilized the services of Jim Edholm and BBI Benefits, Inc. for the last several years and the results, both for our clients and for ourselves, have been outstanding. Jim brings an experienced and even hand to the increasingly hot button topic of employee benefits, particularly health insurance. It is because of his vast array of contacts that Jim is able to tap into data from all the major insurers and to compare information on an “apple to apple” basis. Like most law firms, we’re challenged daily by a host of deadlines and we have insufficient time to spend on these critically important topics. Jim, as a small business owner himself, appreciates the value of his clients’ time and utilizes it in a most efficient manner.

Because of our great experiences with Jim, we have been quick to recommend him and his company to our clients. In every case, the outcome has been very positive. Whether our client has five or five hundred employees, Jim treats them all with the greatest of respect and brings both a positive attitude and diligence to the task.

Jim is a valued member of both the Andover and Greater Lawrence communities. As a past president of the nationally acclaimed Lawrence Boys and Girls Club, he played a critical role in both the survival and renaissance of this tremendous institution.

Advisor, community figure and friend, Jim Edholm and BBI Benefits are a terrific part of our team here at Morris, Rossi & Hayes. I am most pleased to recommend both Jim and BBI to your firm and its clients.
