Big Benefits for Small Businesses

Elevate employee benefits with our powerful association-backed medical, dental, & vision plans.

Competitive Rates & Comprehensive Offerings.

For many small businesses, the current health insurance landscape provides you and your employees with limited choices, flexibility, and support. Associated Industries, in collaboration with premium carriers in Washington and Alaska, offers a health insurance solution that pools industry-specific members together with the benefit of competitive pricing, expanded resources, and experienced service teams, giving you the freedom to focus on your business.

Employer-sponsored health care benefits have never been more complicated and fraught with consequences than they are now. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comprehensive benefits for your people or muddle through the complex regulations on your own.

Benefits Administration Made Easy.

Third-party benefit plan administration is the natural outgrowth of Associated Industries’ service to employers like you. We created our TPA, Associated Industries Management Services (AIMS), expressly to relieve member organizations from the anxiety and headache of group insurance management. And the plans we administer offer competitive coverage options for medical, dental, and vision care.

AIMS provides plan participants and their employees and families access to cost-effective, flexible medical, dental, and vision coverage through Regence BlueShield, AsurisNW Health, Delta Dental, and VSP. We offer online tools and resources to help your people manage their forms and benefits and easily find plan information and network providers.

Employers can breathe easier as AIMS handles:

  • Eligibility coordination
  • Electronic data interface (EDI) with carriers
  • Consolidated premium billing and account reconciliation
  • COBRA administration
  • Required notice and disclosures of summary plan description (SPD), HIPAA privacy practices, and COBRA initial notices
  • Daily administration with ongoing client support
  • Producer commission reporting and payments

How it works for you—a members’ point of view.

The ladies at AIMS are THE BEST enrollment firm we work with by far. I wish handling the admin was this easy with every carrier. Thanks for doing a great job for us and our clients.

In a previous position, I had an experience using health benefits through an association, it did not go smoothly but the team at AIMS has changed my perspective. They currently manage the administration of our medical, dental, vision, and COBRA benefits. From day one they were patient and helpful, making sure we were set up correctly, and going over everything our staff might need with me. They are always willing to think outside the box, get things done quickly and that makes everything easier for me and for the employees counting on their benefits. Our carrier connection went smoothly and we get notified immediately when there is a discrepancy so we can get it corrected prior to our employees having any benefit issues. It is a pleasure working with such a willing and capable team.

I have dealt with many TPAs and the AIMS team really stands apart from the others. When you call them, an actual person answers the phone and gives your questions the attention you need. And it’s not just one person either, the whole team really knows their stuff and goes the extra mile to take care of you. When it comes to getting the information you need for your clients the AIMS team is Johnny on the spot!

One of my VIP clients needed a new insurance solution and they happen to be very passionate about customer service. I was so happy to get them benefits through the trust and working with AIMS. The team at AIMS believes in always being prepared, instead of always having excuses at the ready. I love working with them and I knew they were a perfect fit for my client!
