What Our Clients Are Saying
To Our ARISTA Family –
You will never know how much we appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness you showed our employees impacted by the tornado. With all the loss and despair these families have faced, it was nice to be able to see a smile come over their faces. Thank you!
ARISTA has been a company we have worked closely with over the years, and their knowledge, expertise, and professionalism is the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Their IRS Reporting webinars really helped us understand the process. March 31st seems like a long time, but it is coming fast. They also do weekly Q & A webinars that I have found extremely useful in helping me understand our responsibility as the Board.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the team members I work with at ARISTA.
As a relatively new benefits manager, they have proved to be invaluable to me. They help navigate me through general benefit questions and have always been extremely responsive to my requests. They not only do a great job, but it’s very evident that they care about the job they do.
It continues to be a pleasure to work with them!
Based on Willmer’s long history with ACEC and ARISTA’s advocacy on our behalf, they negotiated a 3% rate increase. This premium increase is one of the two lowest in the Southeast. I am convinced that based on their tenacious support of our group and their advocacy for us, we have been able to keep our renewal to single digits for the past two years and also maintain two plan options for our employees. Because of this knowledge, we have saved many dollars that we could have paid for outsourcing.
Travis also prepared an in-depth blueprint for us to refer to that reflects our management’s current and future strategic initiatives. We review this with him annually to redirect, add or delete items based on our firm’s goals and objectives as well as reflect the impacts of the ever changing healthcare laws impacting the marketplace.
One of the major reasons that convinced us to use ARISTA is the benchmarking data they have and use to compare our premiums with the other firms that are similar to us. That has also afforded Willmer a distinct advantage with our employees. This data has confirmed that Willmer’s employee premium payment meets or exceeds other similar consulting firms.
In summary, while it was a difficult decision to switch from our agent of 10 years, who is also a very good friend and colleague, the advantage to Willmer and our employees was measured in real dollar savings and outstanding customer service.
I am confident that if you choose ARISTA as your provider, you will enjoy a similar experience!
As president of the ACEC Life/Health Insurance Trust (Trust), I work with brokers and health benefit consultants across the country. In my opinion, the “best of class” brokers and consultants distinguish themselves through their technical competencies and equally as important, by their commitment to serving the consulting engineering industry and their willingness to partner with the Trust in our mission of bringing value to our member firms.
ARISTA and Travis Riker have been a longstanding trusted advisor to our industry and a partner to the Trust. Travis has participated in Trust strategic planning sessions prior to our launching of a new product. In addition, I recently moderated a panel on Health Care Reform that Travis was a key organizer and contributor as a panel member. Finally, Arista and Travis have consistently supported ACEC Georgia, ACEC National and other state and regional ACEC initiatives.
I look forward to continuing our partnership and serving our shared objective of bringing value to ACEC Member Firms.
Our dedicated ARISTA resources provide proactive and immediate assistance in all areas of benefits administration – from enrollment, issue resolution, billing to operational efficiency review. We see them as extension of our HR department – they are the dependable and flexible back-up to our team and trustworthy advisor on our benefits program management and cost containment. We found “quality care” with ARISTA and we look forward to more years of fruitful partnership.
The impact study has given us a new perspective on how we will develop our benefits strategy moving forward.
The Shared Savings program in Wayne County has been a huge success because the ARISTA has provided exceptional leadership and support during the initial implementation and now. We have had two years of considerable savings to the district because ARISTA thought out of the box and was able to successfully guide us through the process. The team was a pleasure to work with and available every step of the way. I highly recommend the ARISTA team to anyone who is interested in helping our classified staff put more money in their pockets as well as saving the district a substantial amount.
