Supporting state and local government

For over 160 years, we’ve been delivering customized health care solutions to state and local government employees, with integration to drive down costs.

Helping our first responders

I’ve been saving lives for over 15 years. But this call was different. The stress. The pain. The nightmares.


Maybe I should talk to someone. But who? My squad? They’ll think I’m weak. The department shrink? I could put my job at risk.


The First Responder Peer Support Program. I can talk with peers who’ve seen what I’ve seen and know what it’s like.


Get confidential referrals to trusted therapists experienced with first responders. And access content that may be helpful for me and my family.


I’ve been saving lives for over 15 years. Now I can finally trust someone else to help save mine.

Helping our first responders

First responders don’t always use traditional employee assistance programs. Our First Responder Peer Support Program offers first responders and their families trusted, confidential, accessible support for their unique needs that’s just a click or phone call away.

Win the battle against rising costs

Win the battle against rising costs

With our tax-advantaged options, you get savings when employees contribute to health expense funds. And they get quality benefits. With ongoing savings, the program can even pay for itself.

Available plan options:

  • Health reimbursement arrangement (HRA)*
    You set the amount that your employees can use to pay for covered health care costs.
  • Health savings account (HSA)**
    You — and/or your employees — make tax-advantaged contributions to help them save for future expenses.
  • Flexible spending account (FSA)
    Your employees can put part of their pre-taxed salary into this account to get reimbursed for eligible expenses.
