NEW! Bennett Insurance Agency in partnership with Benefits by Design

Group Insurance Plans Bennett Insurance Agency Limited Employee Benefit Plans

Bennett Insurance has put together an Association Benefits plan exclusively for members of BIOTECanada.  With this new plan, BIOTECanada members can obtain benefits and features that are normally reserved for large companies, without the added cost.

Features of the new plan:

Customized – Unlike some plans, the BIOTECanada plan gives you a wide variety of options with respect to your plan design.
Simplicity – The team at Bennett Insurance will handle as much or as little of the plan administration as you want.
Efficient – By leveraging the large size of the BIOTECanada membership, your costs may be lower than sourcing a benefit plan directly.  To illustrate potential cost savings, we will be happy prepare comparable quotations from the marketplace.

Your Benefit plan can include one or more of the following benefits:

Life Insurance – Coverage for employees and family members
Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) – Doubles the amount of life insurance paid out if you die by accident
Disability Insurance – Approved Claims will provide income replacement for when you cannot work due to an accident or illness
Health Insurance – Designed to cover the things that provincial plans don’t (ie. prescriptions, paramedical practitioners, supplies & equipment, travel, etc.)
Dental Insurance – Plans range from basic coverage (check-ups and fillings) to orthodontics and everything in between
Critical Illness Insurance – Lump sum payments if you are diagnosed with one of the 25 covered illnesses
Employee Assistance Program (EAP) – Counselling to provide help in dealing with a wide range of emotional, financial, legal and daily issues 

If you don’t currently have an employee benefits plan in place, but would like to explore the costs, please feel free to contact our office.  We require very little information in order to provide a formal proposal. If you have a plan already in place but would like to see how the BIOTECanada plan could be better suited for your company, we will be pleased to offer our advice and assistance.
