Health Plans Through A Private Exchange

Dependent upon your insurance agent's location, SBAM has private exchange resources that can work for you. NexBen and coverageforcompanies™ are private exchanges that allow SBAM members the ability to offer a wide selection of Blue Cross and BCN group health plans to their employees.

Defined contribution programs allow employers to offer their employees a choice of multiple plans while keeping their budget predictable. 

  • Provide the Blue Cross and BCN medical, prescription, dental and vision plans that your employees look for.
  • The defined contribution model gives you control of your benefit budget.
  • Your agent will assist you and your employees with plan selection.
  • You can easily track the progress of open enrollment, employee plan selection and payroll deductions.
  • You'll get an easy-to-use decision tool that helps employees with plan selection.

Dental Plans

It takes more than just medical care to maintain total body health. More than 120 serious health problems—including diabetes, heart disease and kidney failure—can cause signs and symptoms in and around the mouth. This means dentists are often the first health care professionals to notice them. And dental problems—especially gum disease—can make existing medical conditions worse.

Vision Plans

Preventive care is a proven way to keep costs down. Vision insurance is one of the least expensive investments you can make in your employees' health.

  • Low exam copays
  • Extensive provider network, which now includes Costco Optical and Rx Optical
