Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
Astra HR, a leading professional business process solutions provider, today announced an extension to their HR administration, payroll and benefits services to include Employee Benefits Brokerage services. Astra HR has developed a unique program that fully integrates and streamlines payroll, benefits and HR administration into one, consolidated platform.
The integration enables clients to receive customized payroll services bundled with high-value medical and voluntary benefit program policies at a potentially lower rate than if they were to purchase them separately.
"This strategic service approach allows Astra HR to offer a one-of-a-kind consolidated solution that will enable us the ability to manage all aspects of the overall process from the proposal to a payroll deduction," commented Michael Irvine, COO of Astra HR. "We are always looking for ways to help businesses better their operating efficiencies and by offering this approach, our client's need only to work with one vendor to get a comprehensive suite of HR and insurance services."
The development of these enhanced services allows clients to have access to a wide range of health and wellness initiatives. In addition to Astra HR's services that include payroll, HR, benefits administration and claims processing, clients enrolled in this program will experience simplified administration, wider selection of benefit plans, maximization of available benefits and plan features and personalized professional insurance service. Clients will be able to identify and have access to plan options including healthcare cost management, vendor selection management, healthcare data management reporting, consumer driven healthcare options, entire benefit plan and compliance audits, medical management and wellness integration, network accessibility studies, semi annual claims analysis, renewal offerings and informed recommendations and wellness initiatives.
To guide clients through these new processes, professional advisors are available to help navigate claims advocacy, dispute resolutions, billing and cobra administration, brokerage and procurement, compliance, and underwriting. Combining these essential human resource processes with professional advising enables companies to potentially reduce overall operating costs and evolve with the transitioning healthcare marketplace.
