As we finish our first year of working with BBI, I just wanted to send you a note telling you what a refreshing change it has been compared to the typical broker.

First, you showed us money-saving options when we started with you. But better than that,prior to the renewal this year you contacted us, took the lead in going back out to evaluate alternatives, and also suggested alternative plan designs – which saved us money again this year. We didn’t need to chase you to shop again at renewal time.. . it happened automatically.

On our non-medical coverages, not only did you save us money, you also simplified our administrative efforts by combining several coverages together to get us one bill a month instead of three. Now when we add or delete an employee, it’s only one-third the work it was before you helped us out.

But probably the most interesting and useful things you send us are the periodic emails that keep us up to date on changes that might affect us such as

  • Changes in the law.
  • New product offerings that might be good for us.
  • Potential new HR ideas we might want to implement

Not everything fits our needs at any particular time, but it’s nice to know that you’re keeping us aware of future options.

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 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…

BBI is the consummate benefits broker. They are extremely responsive, knowledgeable and passionate about their work. I was especially thrilled when BBI offered, at no cost to their clients, the full preparation of the 1095C ACA Forms. Yes, that’s right – at no cost! When I shared that information with my HR Professionals Group, they could not believe it!

They [BBI] delivered as promised and our forms were completed and filed months before the deadline. This saved us money, time and stress.

Working with BBI let us help hold our health insurance costs level for three years in a row. Besides that, the BBI people jumped in to fill an administrative hole in our HR department — they were more partner than provider.

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

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.

I have worked with Business Benefit Insurance for the past 16 years. The staff is extremely professional and efficient, yet down to earth. Whenever I need anything, they are always there to help. Recently, our organization changed health carriers. The enrollment meetings were unavoidably planned during my scheduled vacation. In my absence, BBI sent a representative to function as the human resource liaison. They stepped into my role and made themselves available to the employees. They go above and beyond what a traditional broker does. It is truly a pleasure to work with them. We are very satisfied with the many services they provide us. I look forward to a continued successful relationship with BBI. I highly recommend their service to any organization.

Marie A Erickson

Director of Human Resources, Europackaging, LLC

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.

Bob Gilbert

Managing Partner Gilbert and Renton Andover, MA

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.
