Our Employee Benefits Division is headed up by Christopher Durso.

Benefit Options promises to handle all due diligence matters with respect to Health & Welfare Benefits review and analysis.

Let us prove our worth and 21 years of experience to your Organization.

Employee expectations for healthcare coverage are extremely high and, unfortunately unrealistic.  Healthcare costs continue to rise faster than most components of our economy, but the majority of employees expect coverage at only a small increase in cost.  This is close to impossible for most companies today.  Great care must be taken in managing the increasingly expensive process to maximize the benefit that companies and their employees receive for their healthcare dollars.  There are no simple answers; however, Benefit Options can help.

It takes experience, expertise and vision to understand all the complexities of today’s healthcare system.  You need a partner who can translate your corporate objectives and vision into a benefits program that will meet and exceed all your needs in terms of financials, human resource functions and providing a competitive employment package.
