Under our Health Insurance umbrella we offer following Products

Group Health Insurance

Insurance health plans provide coverage to a group of members, usually comprised of company employees or members of an organization. Group health members usually receive insurance at a reduced cost because the insurer’s risk is spread across a group of policyholders. Organizations can choose from following plans:

Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Plans

HMO means “Health Maintenance Organization.” HMO plans offer a wide range of healthcare services through a network of providers who agree to supply services to members. With an HMO you’ll likely have coverage for a broader range of preventive healthcare services than you would through another type of plan. As a member of an HMO, you’ll be required to choose a primary care physician (PCP). Your PCP will take care of most of your healthcare needs. Before you can see a specialist, you’ll need to obtain a referral from your PCP.

Though there are many variations, HMO plans typically enable members to have lower out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plans

A Preferred Provider Organization or PPO is also a network of healthcare providers who provide its members with multiple choices regarding healthcare and healthcare providers(doctors, specialists, hospitals etc). PPOs do not restrict patients to receiving care in-network. It’s optional to designate a PCP

Point of Service (POS) Plans

A point-of-service plan (POS) is a type of managed care plan that is a hybrid of HMO and PPO plans. Like an HMO, participants designate an in-network physician to be their primary care provider. But like a PPO, patients may go outside of the provider network for health care services. When patients venture out of the network, they’ll have to pay most of the cost or higher out of pocket expenses, unless the primary care provider has made a referral to the out-of-network provider. Then the medical plan will pick up the tab.

Health Savings Account (HSA) Plans

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged account to help people save for medical expenses that high-deductible health plans don’t cover. An HSA, owned by an employee, can be funded by the employee and the employer. The contributions are invested over time and can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses.Account balances are rolled over from year to year.

  • Dental Maintenance Organization (DMO)

Vision Insurance

For us, sight is the most important out of our five senses. To say that visual impairments can have a negative impact on a person’s ability to perform their jobs is an understatement.

Vision insurance – a clear choice
Unfortunately, blindness and other types of vision impairment are a common disability in the United States. Many factors, especially age, can have an impact on a person’s vision. Regular visits to an optometrist are crucial to maintaining healthy vision. To help reduce employer and employee costs for vision care, AIS provides access to low cost, comprehensive vision insurance plans. Vision insurance plans make a great supplement to any employer healthcare benefits package as the premiums are very affordable.

AIS’ vision insurance plans offer many benefits including:

  • A comprehensive eye health exam every year with low copayment
  • Savings on new eyewear – get the latest styles!
  • Choose your own optometrist or select one from our network
  • Savings on replacement glasses and frames
  • Special deals for contact lenses
  • Discounts for Lasik eye surgery
  • Excellent administrative support
  • A wide variety of coverage plans to select from

Life Insurance

Employers and employees have the same concerns: “What will happen to his or her family if something unexpected happens to him?” Will they be able to maintain their current standard of living? Will their children be able to attend college? And what about retirement plans? A life insurance plan from AIS will give your employees the peace of mind knowing that the special people in their lives won’t have to deal with any financial burdens in the event of death.

Life insurance plans give employees the means to provide their beneficiaries with financial security after they’ve passed.

AIS provides employers with the following types of life insurance for their employees

  • Term life insurance
    Term Life Insurance is the most basic form of employer paid life insurance. It’s inexpensive and easy to get – no medical exams or questionnaires are required. Term life insurance pays a death benefit only.
  • Whole life insurance
    Whole life insurance policies have the potential to earn dividends, adding to the value of the policy while the insured is still living and increasing the death benefit for their beneficiaries. Whole life insurance is more expensive than term life insurance, because it covers the policy holders for the rest of their life.
  • Universal life insurance
    Universal life insurance plans offer you and your employees the flexibility to adjust premiums and death benefits.
    A Universal life insurance plan includes features like guaranteed protection and cash value accumulation.
  • Variable universal life (VUL) insurance
    A variable universal life insurance plan gives its holders the flexibility to adjust their policy according to their needs. With a VUL policy you and your employees can invest the funds into stocks and bonds, growing the value of the plan while you are alive and providing increased death benefit to beneficiaries.
    A quality life insurance policy will enable you to continue to care for your loved ones even after you’re gone. AIS wants to make sure you get the most beneficial life insurance plans for yourself and your employees. Contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our representatives. As an independent insurance agency, we can offer you the widest selection of plans at competitive prices. We make it easy for you and your employees to guarantee the financial security of your beneficiaries after you’re gone.

401 (K) Plan

A 401(k) plan is a tax advantaged, defined-contribution retirement account offered by many employers to their employees. It is named after a section of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Workers can make contributions to their 401(k) accounts through automatic payroll withholding, and their employers can match some or all of those contributions. The investment earnings in a traditional 401(k) plan are not taxed until the employee withdraws that money, typically after retirement. In a Roth 401(k) plan, withdrawals can be tax-free.

  • A 401(k) plan is a company-sponsored retirement account that employees can contribute to. Employers may also make matching contributions.
  • There are two basic types of 401(k)s—traditional and Roth—which differ primarily in how they’re taxed.
  • In a traditional 401(k), employee contributions reduce their income taxes for the year they are made, but their withdrawals are taxed. With a Roth, employees make contributions with post-tax income, but can make withdrawals tax-free.

Short & Long Term Disability Insurance

Short Term Disability Insurance

Why talk about short-term disability insurance at all? You’re more likely to experience a disability than you might think – according to the Council for Disability Awareness, 1 in 4 workers will experience a period of disability before they retire. On top of that, 46% of Americans wouldn’t be able to cover a $400 emergency expense without resorting to credit card debt or a family loan. If you were unable to work due to a short medical emergency, how would you pay for it?
Short-term disability insurance is an insurance product that replaces your income for a short period of time in the event that you experience a disability. The benefit period usually lasts 3 to 6 months. Let’s break that definition down a little:
A disability is any medical condition that stops you from working. It’s a common misconception that disabilities only occur because of workplace accidents; in fact, most disabilities are caused by chronic conditions like back injuries, cancer, and heart disease. Depending on your employer, pregnancy may also be categorized as a disability, and you may need to use a disability insurance policy to provide income while you’re on leave from work.
STDI may not cover you for the entire duration of your disability. Depending on your policy, STDI generally replaces your income between three months and six months. STDI plans typically cover up to 80% of your gross income.

Long-term disability Insurance

Long-term disability insurance (LTD) is an insurance policy that protects an employee from loss of income in the event that he or she is unable to work due to illness, injury, or accident for a long period of time.
Some estimates state that the average employee with a long-term disability or illness misses 2.5 years of work. This can devastate a family financially without the safety net provided by a long-term disability insurance policy.
LTD does not provide insurance for work-related accidents or injuries that are covered by worker’s compensation insurance. But, they do cover an employee in the event of a personal accident such as a car accident or a fall.
However, long-term disability insurance ensures that an employee will still receive a percentage of their income if they cannot work due to sickness or a disabling injury. Long-term disability insurance is an important protection for employees when the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that an employee has a one in five chance of becoming disabled.
