Assessment & Review

How Your Health Plan Compares

The Capitol Group offers the following services to help you offer competitive and cost-effective benefit plan designs:

Assessment Questionnaire
We make it easy to ask the right questions
Purchasing or renewing a health plan without careful review is like driving your car without your hands on the wheel. The best companies are committed to gathering information and acting on what they’ve learned. They also create stability in the plan by considering the needs of the CFO, HR Director and employee equally.

Assessment Scoring Tool & Report
Learn how your health care plan measures up
We have established a model for health benefit plans. Completing and scoring our questionnaire will illustrate how your company compares to those firms achieving a balance between cost and quality.

Action Plan Timeline
Get ready to make your health plan better
Analyzing critical areas such as plan design, compliance, communication, wellness and education helps you take control of future health plan costs rather than remaining at the mercy of the market.

Employee Survey
To control costs, everyone needs to be involved
Including covered employees in the benefit planning process helps your organization establish benefit objectives, determine appropriate levels of cost sharing and helps your employees become more informed health care consumers.

Cost Projections/Global Budgeting
Let others remain at the mercy of the market
Our ongoing assessment and review process enables the best companies to budget for future health benefit plan cost increases and protect their bottom line.

The Capitol Group Benchmarking & Surveys
Analyze prior claims to lower future costs
Auditing prior healthcare claims helps the best companies understand their loss ratio and determine the real factors that are driving higher costs. Fewer claims mean lower costs and a healthier workforce. Comparing your results against industry averages helps you make effective decisions for employee recruiting and retention.

Our benchmarking data provides you a standard to which you can compare your benefit programs. We will make recommendations to help you enhance your plan while at the same time remaining competitive and reducing your overall plan costs. 

Valuable benefit trend statistics and surveys are one of the core pieces of information that we provide to our clients to help support your benefit plan design strategy and decisions. These surveys and statistics provide benchmark data from leading consulting organizations around the country, like Thompson Medstat, Milliman, and Kaiser HRET, and cover the following topics:
Ancillary Benefits - Benefit Costs - Benefit Management - Healthcare Costs - Health Plans - Prescription Drugs - Retirement Plans - Wellness Benefits - Vacation and Paid Time Off

HR Information Exchange

The best companies know that information is power
Industry leading companies use the information we provide to control plan costs, offer more valuable benefit options and achieve higher levels of employee satisfaction.

Renewal Estimator Tools
How the best companies balance cost and quality
When benefit plans are based on accurate assessment and review, unexpected surprises are removed from the renewal process. This is one reason why successful companies accomplish more during their renewal cycle.
