A Look at Over 40 Years of Benefits

Our Services



Michelle Bounce

President / Co-Owner

“This journey is a personal one for me. The entire healthcare ecosystem seems to be built around treating people as if they are nothing more than a transaction. It is my passion to put the HUMAN back into the process. WE can never forget that this is not just a bill, a procedure, a date of services, a diagnosis. This is a human being that is going through something, and we have the opportunity to show compassion through connection and support during this time for them. We have the opportunity to make a difference and WE WILL! I am thankful to be able to service our members and clients every day.”


James P. Farley

CEO / Co-Owner

“I have been in the Employee benefits business for over 50 years. Costs for both Employers and Employees have been spiraling out of control that entire time, mainly because buyers have not paid attention and let it happen. Motivating and facilitating plan sponsors and their advisors to help themselves and their employees lower costs and improve care by staying in front of the next increase has driven and rewarded me that entire time.”

Clarity – Connection – Compassion

Our Core Values

We believe that every quality relationship begins with honesty. And our healthcare system should be no different. We strive for transparency and trust when serving you because your health is our business. Health plans are more about plan spend or provider services; they’re about people, and we’re dedicated to bringing the people we work with clarity, connection, and compassion above all else.
