PEO to PEO or Open Market to PEO or PEO to Open Market: At 50 employees, the value of Vensure's PEO does stand; however, it is time to consider a long term insurance strategy. Why? Depending on the company's HQ state, your group may be ready to move to a large group plan on the open market or through level-funded plans. Employee benefits are priced differently for large groups versus PEO or small group ACA plans. How? Carriers for large group plans look at your employee demographics, premiums vs claims, and even what services or prescriptions are being used by your employees on the census provided.
In order to shop level-funded or large group plans against a PEO, you need access to an experienced insurance broker who understands the the PEO model. If you are or plan on being a large group in the next 18 months, benchmarking the PEOs to both large group fully insured and level funded plans directly with the carriers is extremely important.
A perk of being on a large group plan are the insights on claims for your group. A savvy broker will access your group's claims data and create a specific cost sharing strategy that allows the employer to correctly assist the carrier in pricing your group. Helping the three parities: employer, broker, and carrier avoid high renewals and properly manage rising insurance costs!

How does Vensure price their solutions?
Vensure prices their PEO and HR service platforms on a per employee per month basis. Vensure is customizable and you may not need all of their products, so they have designed the billing in a way that helps you forecast cost by knowing the cost per user. Some PEO models charge a percentage of payroll; however, many customers find this confusing and Vensure prides itself on offering transparent billing.
Vensure does offer benefits through their PEO and they also allow you to carve out benefits and keep your current plans with your broker if needed. Vensure partners with third party providers and carriers so you can offer: health insurance, 401(k), commuter, and more.
You can get your Workers Compensation through Vensure or simply keep it with your current broker as a Workers Comp carve out. Vensure allows you to have a pay-as-you-go workers compensation payment each pay period versus the traditional quarterly or annual audit most companies use.
