Our decades of success have been driven by 3 critical areas of focus in the management of our client-partners’ benefit programs:

 

Financial Analysis

twentytwenty’s key service objective is to provide you with clear and comprehensive choices which allow you to decide how best to maximize your benefits dollar.  This is accomplished through proactive management and innovative strategies in plan design.

We begin by gaining a thorough understanding of your organization’s goals and philosophy relating to employee benefits followed by a thorough, in-depth analysis of historical data to define clearly where you are and how you arrived there.  We then explore how your current program compares with the overall industry-specific marketplace.

Following decisions, we then develop a strategy focused on achieving set goals while meeting the financial requirements determined by our client.  The strategy will include most current information regarding Health Care Reform ensuring future considerations take into account pending health care changes.
