Aegis Risk is a specialty consultant and broker focused on medical stop loss, health reinsurance and related risk management strategies. We seek solutions for large employer benefit plans and other risk-bearing health entities. We partner directly with employers and providers, as well as other brokers and consultants.

Our Value:
Our in-depth knowledge of catastrophic medical claimants and their coverage solutions exceeds that of most benefits advisors – who only cover it occasionally. We obtain the greatest value in protection from this unique risk, while your primary broker or consultant remains focused on the rest.

Our Services:
Core services include stop loss plan design, as well as carrier marketing and selection. Our expertise and relationships provide highly competitive renewal quotes, including top-rated carrier options not available to other benefits consultants and brokers.

Upon placement of stop loss, we provide ongoing claims monitoring and reimbursement filing - providing peace of mind in using a carrier external to your claims administrator or health plan.
For larger organizations with multiple divisions and/or profit centers, we can structure an internal risk pool paired with a higher, less costly stop loss deductible - further lowering your total expense.

Our historical perspective as health care benefit consultants uniquely prepares us as relevant advisors to ACO’s and other emerging risk-bearing entities as they consider the potential shift of catastrophic claimants to their liability.

Learn More:
Contact us today to discuss our approach, including a complimentary, no-commitment review of your coverage. We partner with employers as well as other brokers and consultants.

Health Plan Administrators struggle to manage the moving parts of the benefit plan. We help Administrators organize their data, vendors, and business processes into one, privately branded portal. 

With their portal, Administrators organize the different pieces of the health plan in one place and securely communicate with plan participants 24/7 from any device. This empowers Administrators to boost their efficiencies and drive health plan engagement.

For over 20 years, Health Trusts, Third Party Administrators, Health Plans, and Employers worldwide have organized their benefit plan administration online through their partnership with Health Portal Solutions.

SecureSave provides a standalone Emergency Savings Account (ESA) built specifically to drive high employee participation while delivering measurable improvements to employee financial wellbeing. Our average employee participation rate is 60% due to our easy-to-use mobile and web app, payroll savings automation, employee encouragement, and employer "matching" and incentive programs. SecureSave helps employees avoid 401k loans and withdrawals, payday loans, second jobs, and credit card debt when faced with unexpected financial emergencies, which results in higher productivity and less on-the-job stress. The account is post-tax and not subject to ERISA, which means employees have easy access to their money — and it's easy for HR to manage, too! SecureSave is the first financial wellness product demonstrating the ability to create ongoing employee savings behavior at a large scale.
