What is in it for your Financial Institution?
You get the buying power and clout of a large employer with thousands of enrollees. The Trust provides each employer with all the options and group rates normally available only to larger employers. With 30 plan choices we allow even smaller institutions to offer multiple plan options.
Due to the longevity and stability of the Trust we are able to offer the best possible rates, from the high-quality carriers you know and can have faith in; Premera Blue Cross, Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oregon, Group Health, Kaiser Permanente, Delta Dental, Willamette Dental, Vision Service Plan, Standard and others.
The Trust is designed specifically to meet the needs of financial institutions. We know that every employer has their own unique goals and we have set the Trust up with customization in mind. Employers can choose to utilize the Trust for all their benefit needs or as a supplement to their existing programs.
